    I've got a Creative X-fi card, and I would like to hook up to a 7.1 Onkyo receiver using analog cables. What are my options? I found this on creative's page

    but I haven't been able to find similar cables. What do you guys recommend?

    If you want to connect the X-Fi SPDIF digital audio out to the receiver's digital audio in, you'll need this. This would let the receiver decode the digital signal.

    Thanks for the replies. No internet in the new apartment for a week, so I'm a little slow on the response. I ended up ordering the cable, digital output is not a very good option for gaming.
