--5.1 Setup--


Standard Member
Hey guys, quick question from a friend of mine..

"I have some 5.1 speakers from my pc, they are quite old so dont use opitcal they use 3 analog jacks (one chanel for sub, one for front speakers and one for rear speakers) to connect to a 5.1 sound card on computer, like this


(its the orange, black an green jacks it uses)

where can i get some convertor lead that goes from these three jacks to a single jack/opitcal? something like this


(top middle - it has 4 but i wont use the pink mic jack)

im assuming something like that alongside an opitcal cable would let me get the 5.1 sound from my imac to my speakers".
