im sure it is! You need a minijack (headphone type connector) to 2 phonos more likely than not. These are available at all the bigger cable suppliers for next to nothing for a cheap one...... try www.lektropacks.com

if i connect the laptop with minijack it will only give me stereo,
can i connect the loptop with the i-link the Pioneer AX10i has 2 i-link connectors, if so would this give me the abilaty to play movie's of my laptop with 5.1 surrond

The other alternative would be to get a external usb sound card and use digital output on the sound card.

I use to do this with my sony laptop using a creative lab exitgy.

My laptop has SPDIF output on one of the 3.5mm audio jacks (Toshiba 5100) and I've never managed to get this to output digital sound to my AX5i. I'm using the correct leads (3.5mm to phono plug to the co-ax digital input on amp). I've tried using WinDVD to send a DVD sound but no luck. I assume its a setting on the laptop but Toshiba's manual is useless.

Any ideas which might help Steve or I

Cheers

have you tried looking in start-control panel-sounds and audio devices for something useful?
