Here is a tricky one for those in the know!

I was wondering what (if any) sound connecting a monster component and TOSLINK cable would output when used on a core system! When using the core system and a 'standard' component and RCA cable stereo sound is output, but I was wondering whether this cable on a core system will output digital stereo or the full 5.1!

Thanks in advance!

The insides of a core are exactly the same as a premium, so you will get 5.1 throught the TOSLINK.

In fact I have 5.1 through my core the same way. :smashin:

The core is exactly the same machine as the premium, just without the hard drive. That lead will do 5.1 for you, sure.

:nono: Someone forgot about the wireless pad :D :rotfl:
