Im considering these hifi speakers for piano monitoring (vst) but I'm not familiar with the kind of inputs it has. No jack, no xlr...

How do i connect them to mi laptop? (By cable. I see they have Bluetooth but im not using that feature)

Also, does anyone have any experience with their sound?

You just need a simple 3.5 jack to stereo rca cable. Something like this:

I doubt that your laptop has optical audio output.

you could, they also make cheap usb to toslink adapters, these might have worse latency than a good interface.

It seems it's enough with just an rca cable

if ur laptop has very little dc noise it's fine, but most people aren't so lucky especially when the cpu turbos, the higher frequency usually leads to chirps/buzzing and that gets into the amplification chain.
