I'm building a HTPC and i'm not very familiar in this department. My plan is to output sound from my HTPC to my Harman Kardon AVR 340. My purpose is to play music (CD, MP3) from the computer and output to the receiver and to my speakers (i only have a 5.1 set right now). I don't plan on playing DVD movies.
I was planning on getting this card:
Creative Sound Blaster Audigy SE SB0570LPVP 5.1 Channels
Mainly because it costs $26 at newegg.
Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi XtremeGamer 7.1 for $49 (after mail-in-rebate)
I've been doing some researching and from what i gather, I think i'm suppose to get a COAX to 3.5mm plugg convertor and plug that into one of the line outs of the card. Then i can take a COAX cable and connect it from my receiver to the convertor plug.
is this correct or there's more to it than that?
