IT will work. One caveat, optical only outputs 5.1. I really think Astro and others that advertise 7.1 is a disservice to their customers.
The only way to get 7.1 is analog or HDMI.
It says, right on the front of their site that it includes a cable but they charge you for a premium cable. The Astro's are decent headsets but way overpriced.
Happy listening, the Prisoner...
Ok so the optical cable given will fit inside my motherboards S/PDIF Optical out port?
