How to Convert Banana Plugs to 3.5mm
Most stereos use wires to connect to audio receivers. (Jupiterimages/ Images)

Stereo speakers connect to audio receivers, amps and televisions via a wire connection. The down side to this connection is that only speakers use it. This wire connection is known as a banana plug. If you want to hook up a stereo to any other device that takes another connection option, you need to convert the wires to a cable format, such as 3.5mm -- the same size used by your headphone connection jack.
