Hi all. As most of you are familiar with the ASUS Xonar Essence STX sound card, the ST model is pretty much the same card, but can also be attached to the ASUS Xonar H6 extension card, which gives it full 5.1 channel support via RCA analogue cables.
The problem I have is that my Logitech Z-5500 Digital 5.1 Speaker System uses 3 inputs for the analogue surround sound, but the card uses 6. On my Z-5500, I have inputs for the Black, Green, and Orange RCA cables. This is how everything is set out:
Black cable: Takes care of Centre channel and Subwoofer.
Green cable: Takes care of Left and Right channels.
Orange cable: Takes care of the Rear Left, and Rear Right channels.
ASUS Xonar H6 (Extension Card):
Output 1: Right.
Output 2: Left.
Output 3: Centre.
Output 4: Subwoofer.
Output 5: Rear Right.
Output 6: Rear Left.
I don't know how to connect my speaker system via analogue cables to the card. The sound card itself also has Coax and Optical inputs, but the whole point of buying the extension card was so I could use the DAC of the sound card instead of the DAC of my speaker system (which isn't that great).
Please help me guys, I don't know what to do!
