    hey, i have some 5.1 computer speakers, im trynig to connect them to a reciever, if i hoook it up like this, will it work for all 5 speakers or just the front ones?

    A Home Entertainment System or other component device with RCA outputs (red and white audio cables)
    You'll need to convert the RCA audio outputs of your device to a standard 3.5mm male connector. To do so, you'll need to purchase an adapter or a series of adapters at your local electronics store. On one end of the adapter should be 2 female RCA connectors, on the other end should be a 3.5mm male connector. Once you have the adapter, you can either connect it to the front of your Z-680 control pod via the line-in jack or in the back of the control pod with the green analog input plug. Set your Z-680 to Direct mode and choose the desired effect.

    You don't get 5.1, unless you connect directly to the speakers with a DD 5.1 AVR from it's speaker cables.

    Or, you connect optically to them. In general I tell people it is not possible to use the computer 5.1 system, unless you use your PC as your HT PC.


    best of luck with it.
