It's definitely not the whole story, but it's a good starting point.
The cables are pretty cheap (less than $20 in the US) and it'll get
you started.  It would probably be beneficial for you to put together a
cheap test system to see how you like it, before you spend big bucks on
better hardware.  It'll also give you time to experiment with different
music players on your computer to see which you like best.
