Pc sound card directly (w/out reciever) to 5.1 HT speaker system

I have an H.P. computer with a "D7249D integrated 7.1 sound " (their designation) and the speaker outlet connected to two Logitech R10 powered speakers. This setup gives me satisfactory (to me) sound that at maximum volume setting can drive me out of my office.

Can I connect the computer audio signal wires in PARALLEL to two more powered speakers so I can listen to Pandora or the local Classical station using my internet connection to have audio in my bedroom? Do I have to switch from office to bedroom or can I just both run simultaneously?

whatta ya think?

  1. Yes, as long as the connection isn't to far away, the pre-out should have enough power to run two signals in parallel.

    Use something like this:
