I may be asking an old question but yet i didnt find any direct clear answer.
I have logitech z5500 speakers and asus xonar st soundcard, i used to connect them via optical cable but i have been told that by doing so my sound card won't be the device that process the audio , the logitech receiver will. Is that true ? and what is the best way to connect this card to my speakers? optical or analog cables ?
Mind you i use my pc mainly for games and some music listening , while i use my ps3 for blurays " home theater player " which i connect to the logitech speakers via optical cable.
