5.1 surround on iMac (2011) - How to?
Been trying to work out a clean way of merging my mac/pc into the one machine (VM Windows), and keep hitting the snag of imac not having 5.1 card. As far as I know there isn't any external adapters they sell either. So is there a way to get a 5.1 surround kit working on an imac, without buying additional amps etc?
Currently using Logitech X530 ( Logitech X-530, Continued : 5.1 Surround Sound on the Cheap ) as you can see kind of limited on port choices :)
If there isn't a way without an amp, would it make more sense just to bin the speakers and get a set that can work via optical (as I'm pretty sure all the new imacs work with optical output from the normal headphone socket?)
Or am I barking up the wrong tree here?
