PC sound card and PC to Amp
Hey, currently I have an Onkyo 5.1 HDMI amp that I use between my Xbox and my projector. I recently built a new PC and am yet to buy a sound card.
I want to run my PC sound though my amp. Currently I am using onboard sound and just have a single 3.5 jack going to L and R phono in on my amp.
Is there a better way to do this? I don't know much about PC sound really, other then sound comes out the Green port and the others are for surround sound (or so I am told).
I really don't know where to start. I don't know much about sound in general. http://asset1.cbsistatic.com/cnwk.1d...08_610x281.png that is what my amp looks like (exactly that model, I found loads of pictures of similar ones but this is exactly mine) and I got it about a year ago for £70 in a sale. I just needed one to get sound using my projector so I don't even know if it is any good!
thats probably the easiest way to do it, it is what i do. If you are just looking for stereo listening then it will be fine. If you have dolby pro logic on your amp and you watch something through the pc it will give a virtual surround if you are watching movies ro something.
Does the motherboard have an optical out? If so then windows can output bit-perfect audio straight into the receiver.
