IBook sound card performance?

I'm using a G4 iBook for my home stereo - it goes direct to block amps and thence to the speakers. Would I get better audio if I used an external soundcard instead? I'm looking at the Emu 0202 USB 2.0, which claims to have 24 bit I/O, 32 bit processing, and full 24 bit resolution at all sample rates. Is that better than the iBook's soundcard?

I've seen USB soundcards, on ebay, that you can plug in and use...they were pretty cheap tho, so dunno if you'd want one...but I guess that it shows that it is possible to do :>

Sorry but I need a clarification. The problem is at the "Toshiba sound card" as the category says or at your amplifier. I'm trying not in order to punish you for wrong category but in order to clear the things in my mind.

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.
If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.

I have F&D home theatre i want to connect it to laptop

go to radio shack or walmart . get a cable that has an 1/8th inch stereo plug on one end and two (male) rca plugs on the other end.
make sure your volume is not all the way up on either the computer or the stereo.
plug the 1/8 inch plug into your "speaker or headphone" jack on the laptop.
plug the red and white (male) rca plugs into the auxilary or cd "IN" on the home theatre.
Power up the stereo, make your source on the home theatre the Auxilary or CD, whichever you used to plug the RCA's into.
now you should hear anything from the laptop through the home theatre.

moz-screenshot.jpg 2d65f17.jpg
Just buy two connectors(shown above). Its having two holes upside.
1. Connect the connector to one hole of the other.
2. Connect the audio cable to the dvd.
3. Then connect the connectors to the other side of the audio cable.
4. Lastly, connect the three stereo output cables of the Creative speakers to the three holes of the connector simultaneously.
I have tried this at home with my Creative Inspire M5300 speakers and philips dvd. All the five speakers are working.

Optical out

I think it depends on what software you are using to play the 5.1... VLC lets you, PowerDVD and WinDVD also do there my be some tweaking needed to get them to sound good though.

My sound blaster 5.1 does not support stereo

Cakewalk has it's own control panel to select output buses. Consult the software manual. Also make sure you have the correct ASIO (Audio Stream IN OUT) driver for your sound card. You can most likely find this at -Keep in mind that sound blasters were not made for pro audio applications. Consider investing in a better sound card if you really want to take your music to the next level. Good luck!

No sound output

are you hooking up the headphone jack to the unit and not the ibook? When I hook inspire to my mac, the output comes from the unit, not the computer through the unit's headphone jack or the speaker output. Also make sure the volume is up and no channels are muted.
