Speaker Hookup Options

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 


Im a noob here named Danny.

I just upgraded a recently built (12/20/13) pc andI'm looking for the best way to hook up a set of M Audio Studiophile AV40s to an ASUS Xonar Essence ST.

Options are RCA and TRS on the speakers and RCA and SP/DIF Coaxial and Optional TOSLINK combo digital output on the card.

Question is, should I use TRS to RCA or TRS to Coaxial???  Which combo would give me the best sound for my components????


Thank You :atsmile:

RCA cables will do just fine. (but get decent ones with fairly thick wires and solid plugs)


If you go SP/DIF you'll need an external DAC, and that's overkill for such speakers especially with a nice soundcard like yours.

These Monoprice Premium RCA cables will work just fine:
