iPod to External Speakers?

I have a 1st generation iPod nano and I'd like to connect it to a set of old Cerwin Vega speakers with spring clip connectors (from around 1985). I know that I could do this with an amplifier, but I don't have one. Is there a way to do this without one? I also have a Logitech mm50 portable speakers and plenty of speaker wire for my old speakers.

If I can't do this, does anyone recommend a cheap but high quality amplifier that is designed just for the iPod?

No, you will need some kind of amp.

Cerwin Vegas? These sounds like REAL speakers, speakers that need REAL power. Sorry, there is no magic.
