I know nothing about audio, but I love music! I've been trying to do research for a few hours, but keep getting confused.
Here's my current setup:
Logitech Z-5500 5.1 speakers (fronts, rears, center, sub) Soundblaster 1090 USB Card Sager NP8662 Laptop
I want the best possible audio quality setup...down to drivers and up to cable setup.
Here's the back of the SB1090:
Here's the back of the Logitech control pad:
Here's the cables included between both hardware sets:
I have no other cables, but am willing to buy whatever is needed.
I will ONLY be running the speakers to the sb1090 and then directly to laptop - no xbox, tv, etc. I have the green/orange/black cable hooked up to the logitech and soundblaster via the Y-Splitter (each color hooked up from the logitech control pad to the sb1090 rear/sub/left/right ports) - but I feel like I'm losing some quality by doing that???
How do I get the best sound quality possible? :confused:
well its pretty straight forward... just connect the digital cable to the output of the sound card. and connect the inputs of the soundcard to teh outputs of your PC, if its USB powered, then the output of teh PC is the USB. i didnt bother reading about that soundcard, cos its straight forward really.
