yes there are adapters to covert to 2 channel analog or 5.1 surround, etc...
Hah! Excellent link!
So this particular product is of the second type (of the ones i had attached links to). The price, of course, is a sensation!
Thanks a lot!
What kind of cables can i use for the s/pdif connection? RCA male-RCA male? Are there any special characteristics for this cable, like max. voltage limits...? And the pictures on the link kinda' scare me- do the s/pdif ports have caps covering them??
