If they are powered (active) speakers taking a line-level input, you'll require a Connect, not a Connect:Amp. From the manufacturer's specification (copied below) you'll be able to use the Connect via either the digital optical or line-level RCA inputs.

- 1 x pair of RCA phono level inputs with switch for Phono/Line input versatility (Phono Pre-amp with ground screw terminal)
- 1 x USB digital audio from a PC or Mac single RCA line level output for connection to sub.
- 1 x Digital optical
- 1 x 3.5mm mini jack line level
Did anyone verify that this worked??? I have the same question.

It will be the same answer.

Use the Connect for powered speakers and the Connect Amp for unpowered (passive) speakers.
