    Oh yeah I wanted one of those, because then it doesn't actually have to any processing it just sends the signal along so I wouldn't care if it had not processor. But like if i was plugging it into an analog output, it should have a chip. Say is that one you have compatible with Vista?

    Have checked out the product at creative site see:

    Don't think they mentioned about 5.1 speakers or headphones. I think its about getting surround sound from headphones and stereo speakers. They have released another audio solution once again. This looks pretty nice in terms of portability and storage.

    for me an spdif to 5.1 analog converter would do it as all my speakers/headphones are analog and i would use my internal audiocard from my laptop but it has only 2 out's and won't output 5.1 on the classic way.
    That's why i wonder that no "small" 5.1 Soundcards are availible only with fixed cable in "dongle" style and that sucks as i won't tranport my 5.1 reciver everywhere :banghead:

    it's just for the average joe for skype ect. that's why i think it's extremly overpriced and the just use their name for this :wtf:

    SPDIF to analog is called a head unit on your speakers.

    If you want analogue, get a USB soundcard like the one i linked.
