I just received Onkyo DXC390. I would like to use powered speakers. Will that work. What is needed to hook up?

Not sure if you need a pre-amp with that CD player, it may work OK with just speakers, but the output may be too low.

How much are you looking to spend? You may want to borrow a pair of speakers from a friend to test this first.

For a good sounding budget speaker for music, a powered monitor type speaker like Edifier, M-Audio, and others make would be good. If you are not into bass heavy stuff, M-Audio AV 42 are good http://www.guitarcenter.com/M-Audio/AV42-Studio-Monitor-Pair-1428332607928.gc?pfm=item_page.rrt1|ClickEV Or this Edifier set https://www.amazon.com/dp/B016P9HJIA/ref=psdc_3236451011_t2_B072M34NBW

These are higher budget but have several input options and should sound better https://www.amazon.com/Klipsch-R-15PM-Powered-Monitor-Black/dp/B072M34NBW?th=1
