I don't want to replace them with the wireless version as that would entail paying another £179, which seems silly.
Anyway, my problem is that, for various reasons, that would be too complex to explain here, I cannot easily plug them into the USB port of either the computer (a new Mac Mini) or the USB hard drive that is also connected to the mini.
So I looked on the web and found a plug which describes itself as a bluetooth headphone socket (7dayshop Bluetooth Stereo Audio Receiver and USB Wall Charger Plug). This has a 3.5mm audio jack and a USB port, I checked with the reseller and they said that the speakers would work with the plug... it appears they weren't telling the truth...
So, I looked again on the web and found on eBay, a 3.5mm audio jack to female USB connector... (Came from China in about 4 days for £1.89 inc postage!!!)
The bluetooth plug works with headphones and another freebie speaker (unpowered- very quiet), by opening the Sound control panel and choosing the 7dayshopBluetoothAudioReceiver as the output device...
Unfortunately nothing comes out of the Harmon Kardons when plugged into the USB port on the plug nor via the audio jack-USB cable...
Any advice would be gratefully received, before I send back the plug thingy to the seller and drill a hole through the wall to plug the speakers directly into the computer's USB ports.
Films, TV &c are not very good if you can't hear them!!
