you cant just plug your guitar in... you need a preamp

Will it sound good? Nope. You mgiht break the speakers actually.

Get an amp instead!

There's a reason they make specific guitar amplfiers.

That would work. But digital processed amplification aint as good as a good old tube amp. Not even with a 5.1 surround system.

yesterday i was running a distortion pedal into a stereo amp and it didn't sound that great but it worked though. You could use guitar rig with it and it should work reasonably well, however it wouldn't sound as good as using a proper amp because hifi amps aren't voiced for guitar.

edit: actually that first bit (now removed) was a bad idea
I like analogue Solid State amps that make no effort to be "tube-like", and I'm proud of it...

...A little too proud, to be honest.

It's stereo amp, and I don't think it's tube. However, for a stereo amp, it is very good. Don't plug guitar into it; just use it as hi-fi if it works.

Simply a no-go. In most of the times, it´ll sound like ****. It´s because of the voicing of the speakers.

yeah, thats what i removed from my post...

Actually It's 5.1 surround system, and i don't think it's tube. However, for a 5.1 surround system, it is very good. Don't plug guitar directly into it; Just use it with software amp if it works.

It should work fine with guitar rig, basically. I thought the point of the cabinet simulation in guitar rig was so that it could sound like a guitar amp through more transparent voiced speakers. Works relatively well with my computer speakers anyway.

just turn on some music stand in the middle with your guitar and jam, you won't break your speakers that way.

I think it should be fine with guitar rig because guitar rig is designed to operate with those kind of speakers.

i actually use a vox headphone amp somtimes through my computer speakers, the bass is a little flabby, but sounds really good. only problem is the only make 3 headphone amps and none are very versatile. ull be limited to 3 kinds of sounds, and thats it.
