    Hi All,
    I have purchased a Sound Blaster Audigy Gamer, and I need to know how can I connect it to a soon to be purchased Dolby® Digital 5.1 A/V Unit?
    I mean I have a Dolby® Digital 5.1 A/V system installed in my living room and I have used 6 speakers’ cables to the back of this unit, whereas the Sound Blaster Audigy Gamer has only ONE Digital connector.
    Also would it be wiser to get one the 5.1 digital Speakers “packages” (like Cambrige) or should I buy just the A/V and Sub-Woofer? (Since I already have the Center, F Left, F Right. R left and R Right speakers hooked to my current Dolby® PRO LOGIC A/V unit.
    Please see the images and advise!
    Thanks in advance.

    the audigy has a digital optical hookup on it if i remember correctly. you would need to buy a toslink cable and hook your soundblaster to your new receiver.
