I have been using Klipsch 4.1 speakers (the original) since their release many years ago. They are finally starting to crap out really bad so I've decided to unplug them and possibly try to do some maintaince ... or use them somewhere else.

Eitherway - not far from my PC I have a 5.1 surround sound setup. I was wondering if there was anyway to link my PC to the surround sound system so I can finally have 5.1 digital audio on my PC. I currently have an Audigy 2 ZS (has 3 speakers outs for 6.1 and one digital out miniplug). I really do not know much about home audio... I know I could probably use an standard miniplug to RCA adapter to plug into the receiver (will need a really long cable too) but will that provide 5.1 sound? Anyway... check links to the manual of the receiver.

Any ideas?

hi Marwan, you have probobly sorted issue out by now... but just in case you did not, you need minjack to RCA adapter cable, mono or stereo, does not matter. Plug mini jack into digital out on the Audigy and the RCA plug into COAX in on your receiver. If you get stereo adapter take, use one of the RCA plugs, leave the other loose.
Then go into the Audigy software and set it to bypass ac3 decoding. Option should be called SPDIF or AC3 bypass or something along these lines. Good Luck!
