There's an Amazon basics cable here for £12:

The harmon stick speakers and subwoofer are very satisfying, and quite sexy! H ave them jacked into the tv, macbook or I pad!



Another vote for the soundsticks & they look great

Quote from RedChecker
I simply bought a phono connection cable to connect it to my existing hifi and it works perfectly (I just have the iPad sat at the side of the hifi when listening to Spotify or podcasts) The one I got was an Arcam one that although has extra wiring for the amp to control the iPad/Pod/Phone it works fine just dangling it down the back unconnected (I've put a little plastic bag over the redundant connector to avoid shorting). Mine also allows a charger to be connected to it. Cost me ~£20 IIRC



Yep def the way to go. takes a while but I upload my cd and record in wav format to my ipad, then loose lead to  amp, sounds great!

Along similar lines, but a bit cheaper, are these

I
 find them acceptable for music, but admit I'm no audiophile. You'll also need to figure out some support for the ipad unless you're happy to lay it next to it.

Airplay is the way to go though, if you can justify the price.

Do you have a TV with surround sound or other decent speaker set-up? You could use an Apple TV to play through that via airplay if so.

Powered speakers and an airport express would be my suggestion. That way you can get the speakers you want and airplay.
