But what if you don’t have a Bluetooth speaker and you don’t plan on getting one because you have your trusty stereo system?
Well in that situation there are two options you can go for; a wire group using a 3.5 to 3.5 auxiliary cable or a 3.5 to analog RCA depending on what your stereo needs to connect. These are two great options but they will leave a cable running from your laptop up to the speaker.
