Xonar u7 + logitech 5.1 speakers?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

So I recently bought xonar u7 and whilst using it with my headphones is awesome I wanted to see if I could use it with my speakers. I'm not entirely sure what I should plug in where due to the weird plugs on my speakers. Here are some pictures I took to give you a better idea how the back of the sound card looks and what kind of plugs I'm dealing with. I was going to try using the spdif but my computer only has an optical out so I would need a converter, does that damage the sound and/or is that my only solution to this?

 

Sorry if I'm breaking any rules here, this is a repost from /r/audiophiles but nobody there responded. Any kind of help is greatly appreciated.

 

Thank you!

For the Logitech's Green connector, you would need a 3.5mm female to RCA (red/white) cable adapter for the "Front" speaker jacks on the Xonar U7, to be able to plug the Logitech speakers into it.

The orange and black connectors should plug straight into the U7.

Thanks for the reply, but how do I go about plugging in the FRONT RIGHT since it's plugged from the front right speaker (where volume is controlled, etc) straight into the woofer using a VGA cord.

Nevermind my last post I got a little bit confused on what you said. Thanks a lot for the help, greatly appreciated!
