Hello, I apologize upfront for what may seem like a stupid question, but I’m rather new at this all. We currently have a DVD/Home Theater kit where the decoder is built right into the DVD player and you hook the speakers right into the DVD player. The Speaker wires are bare and go into the DVD player by means of those spring loaded openings. I’m looking at getting my wife a Karaoke machine. On the back of most models, there are RCA outputs for the 5.1 surround sound since there is also a decoder built right in. The manuals show plugging these wires into the back of a receiver/amp. The models I’m looking at also double as a DVD player. My question is, can I add the RCA type connectors to the ends of the current speaker wires and just plug them into the Karaoke machine so that I get 5.1 surround sound for both the Karaoke machine and as the DVD player when it doubles as that? I know this sounds like a cheap setup, but I am just starting out. Any advice would be very much appreciated. Thank you.
