What does this mean?


five stereo analogue inputs and three outputs
four digital inputs (two optical, two coaxial electrical). It even sports two digital outputs

if i have a 5.1 system(5 speakers and 1 sub) does that mean i wont be able to connect my 5 speakers to the reciever? It sounds like there are only 3 outputs for 3 speakers, but i have 5.1 speakers. This doesnt make sense

also, if i have a computer i want to connect to my reicever and then to my speakers, would this work? Right now the ports from the back of my sound card are very small(not sure what type of input this is). WOuld i be best buying a digital sound card or an analog sound card?

Five stereo analog inputs means you can connect five different devices to the receiver such as CD, DVD, Tape, TV, VCR, etc using the red and white RCA jacks.

What you need to look for is the SPEAKER OUTPUTS. Either 5.1, 6.1 or 7.1. Look on the back of the receiver and you'll notice speaker terminals for 5 or more speakers.

Look at the back of this HK 330 receiver. http://www.harmankardon.com/back.asp?prod=AVR%20330&cat=REC&sType=C. It has 6 stereo analog inputs (DVD, Vid1, Vid2, Vid3, CD and Tape). Now look at the speaker terminals. You'll see 7 speaker terminals Front L&R, Center, Surround L&R and Surround Back L&R. This is a 7.1 system. The sub output is the .1 of a 7.1 system.

The number of analog inputs doesn't correlate directly with the number of speaker outputs.

Hope this was helpful.

What receiver are you specifically talking about?
