    pc audio setup need advice please

    After posting here whether to get an x-fi or Auzentech HDA X-Plosion I have picked the X-plosion from the advice on here.

    My problem is a think i will need a dts decoder as my current speakers are creative gigworks g500 progamer although nice speakers they do not have a built in dts decoder. What are my solutions? I do not have the money to spend on an AV receiver/decoder etc. Would a separate decoder be any use?

    thanks

    Does the creative thing have a coaxial or optical digital input?

    Well I know it doesn't have the optical digital input. It has inputs for front, back, centre/subwoofer and some kind of 'aux in' but that is it.
