What kind of cable do I need to buy?
Hi,if analogue outputs are stereo(female) jack sockets you will need a cable/cables with male stereo jack to 2 RCA cables/connectors(need 3 of these for 5.1).If you want to send out the signal digitally you will need either a SPDIF optical lead or coax lead(see the very recent post to do with creative SC's & RAW digital signal for a bit of extra info thou),easiest (& less cables,expense etc) way to go IMO,but you cannot send DVD-A via this way(its to stop you coping )
Do you know where I get a 15M Coax lead from?
Hi,have a look in the Sub forum(used on Subs with there own Amps).You can get them that lenght,but if a quote you a cheapish one,i'll prob get some flak
ps A lot of the retailers advertising on this site will sell them(IMO i would not get into Mega Buck territory thou).Theres also a guy on these forums who sells them,not cheap cheap,but supposed to be good & well made.
If it's anything like my SB Live! 5.1 card you'll need one of these.
