    If my PC was in the same room as my nice home cinema equipment, I'd use the optical for that. But you're right, you don't need it for 2.1.

    Funny a lot of the cheaper ones I've seen later do! my mate has a set of Boston ones that only take a digitial signal.

    You said cheap. Cheap is £5 to £20. If you want a specific answer than be specific yourself. If you knew the answer then why did you ask me?

    And they only take a digital signal? That sounds rather strange...

    NF7-s ?

    You can take a coax lead from the connections on the mobo, and have a coax digi out like that

    I've never used a soundstorm so I've no idea what the output is like on them. I'm considering buying one soon though.

    My mate uses a SB128D PCI (for digital) with his speakers. Its all Gateway gear. The problem is that the SB128D driver keeps switching to analog which the speakers don't work with so you have to renstall the driver to get the digital output back. I tested the speakers with my Sonic Fury so that how I know about the speakers. Since the Sonic fury has a versa jack that can switch between digitial and analog output. Only problem is hes lost the drivers for the SB128D that I gave him and I can't find them again. The download on the Gateway site is broken. I'm fed up fixing that gateway so I've ignored him for a while in the hope he'll junk the SB128PCI and get a proper card that has decent drivers. I noticed that the digital boston though cheap have a much strong output than my analog speakers through the sonic fury.
