We make it easy to connect your computer to your home cinema system.
How you connect your PC to your home cinema system will depend on your PC's audio output capabilities. PC audio output is either handled by a soundcard or through a motherboard with integrated audio capabilities. Both support either stereo outputs or multichannel outputs.
If your PC supports multichannel audio output, it will have a S/PDIF (digital) output and/or six analogue outputs to connect it to your home cinema or multichannel speaker system.
If you have the choice, connect using the digital output rather than the analogue. Analogue cables tend to pick up more noise and may also cause more high-frequency loss. Newer home cinema systems and multichannel PC speaker systems have digital inputs and can be connected directly to the PC's digital multichannel outputs.
If your PC only supports stereo output, you will probably need to upgrade with an external or internal multichannel soundcard. Some PCs with only stereo outputs also have an optical S/PDIF output, which allows a connection, but the sound will remain in stereo.
