Good day guys, just bought a 6th generation of alienware and noticed that it does not have means to connect a 5.1 or 7.1 speaker system, any one can help me out.
I have a good set of speakers (7.1) which i was using with my old alienware.
I use, and apologize in advance for the FONT EXPLOSION, from copying from amazon. Works great on R6 Siege and the like. StarTech.com 7.1 USB Audio Adapter External Sound Card with SPDIF Digital Audio Sound Cards ICUSBAUDIO7D
An external sound card is what you'll need. I purchased a 3.5mm to TOSLink adapter for $4 to see if I can switch the headphone jack to a SPDIF connection through the creative soundblaster software. No idea if it'll work and at worst, I'm out $4.
