    3.5mm digital out to digital coax in on a decoder?

    Ive got a sound card here with a 3.5mm digital out (on a videologic sonicfury) and a digitheatre decoder to plug it into, just a standard coax digital in. Problem is, the digital coax in on the decoder is a single phono type connector, and Ive no idea where to get a cable to connect the two, or what cable to use...

    Any ideas? Looking for something really cheap, the speakers are reallly quite nasty sounding so a cheapy cable isnt going to put them down too much!

    should be a cable that comes with the speakers/soundcard.

    if not, try a simple headphone->aux lead.. seems odd but it might work

    If the 3.5mm out on the soundcard is an electrical output then you should be fine just using a standard 3.5-->phono cable. If it's a stereo cable, just put both plugs in one at a time to find the one that works.

    If it's a 3.5mm optical out you're SOL unless there's an optical input on the decoder, in which case you need a 3.5mm-->Toslink cable.

    You should be able to get a mono 3.5mm to phono jack from somewhere like maplins, then use a single phono cable to connect the two.
