SOURCE: acer aspire 5910G S/PDIF cable

Hi,

These are Creative Z5500 speakers and you have an audio control panel that allows digital in or analog in, correct?

Digital out is usually marked by a black color ring not green and would have a stamp on it indicating digital or spdif. Digital out and coaxial out are the same thing and are a simple mono male to male mini 1/8 twisted copper cable.

You can use the digital in at the desktop control unit with a mono mini 1/8 male and male cable available at any Radio Shack and also get a mono RCA (any color) male to male adapter. Just explain your needs to the clerk there and they'll set you up.

An optical connection is completely different and makes no difference. The jack is square and usually has a plug in it to keep dust out with a square knob for grabbing it to withdraw the dust plug and put it back in place again. It's best not to bother with these things as they haven't found a place in the market.

Just so you know, you can use the analog out on your laptop to the analog in on the control unit and then select Dolby digital for processing and you won't know the difference. This whole digital thing is blown way out of proportion unless you're working with HD out to HD in on a flat panel TV unit from a Satellite Receiver or Cable Box.

Any other questions just ask away and please don't forget to rate our solutions on FixYa. Thanks.

What is the spdif plug in for on back of tv


S/PDIF (Sony/Philips Digital Interface Format) is a type of digital audio interconnect used in consumer audio equipment to output audio over reasonably short distances. The signal is transmitted over either a coaxial cable with RCA connectors or a fibre optic cable with TOSLINK connectors. S/PDIF interconnects components in home theatres and other digital high-fidelity systems.

How to output sound to a 2nd device


If you need an analogue output, you can tap stereo analogue audio by using one of the two sets of "pre-out" RCA jacks on the back of your receiver. These provide "headphone like" output power, and will not overload any analogue input connected to it EXCEPT MIC and PHONO inputs on the 2nd device. If it's digital audio output you need, there's an HDMI monitor out, that will provide digital audio to another HDMI input equipped device. You'll have to get a relatively cheap adaptor if you need this digital audio output in another digital format/connection (like the popular S/PDIF optical or coaxial).

How to use BA7500G on another computer


I have the same problem except i'm using a macbook and i'm trying to connect the speakers. My macbok accommodates optical digital audio output, but you have to buy a  a standard toslink cable with a toslink mini-plug adapter.  Since the speaker input is a digital coaxial (not fiber, optical) you have to buy a Digital Fiber Optical (Toslink) to Digital Coaxial (S/PDIF) Converter.  i haven't tried it, but i hope this solves our problem. i have the toslink now i just have to buy the converter. good luck to you.

Can i connect JVC SXXSW6000 home theatre to my pc...if so how?


You need a receiver. A surround sound receiver is a 5-channel amplifier with a line-level subwoofer out. These are available at electronics stores. Receivers usually have digital inputs like optical and coaxial that you can use with the S/PDIF output of your PC.
