    Hi people,

    Im a bit of a nub when it comes to hooking up av gear.
    Basically I want to hook my PC (Running Linux Fedora 3) up to my Hi-Fi to blast out my MP3's and my Movies.

    My Hi-Fi has an optical thingy, and an analogue connection (erm, the plugs with red and white stripes!). The computer is packing USB and a medioka sound-card.

    I found this thing:

    but it looks a bit shady to me.

    Will the sound-box do the job.. or is there a better piece of kit out there that would suite my needs!

    Cheers!

    If your PC already has optical out and stereo phonos, all you need is a cable (depending on what inputs your hi-fi has.)

    Depends on the PC. If you have a digital output on your soundcard / motherboard use that.

    If not, just take the output from the headphone socket and plug it into your red and white whodomeflips
