Answers :

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.
