The Logitech Z-5500 surround-sound speaker system is designed for a PC computer and provided digital surround sound audio. Although the equipment comes with a 3.5mm audio line connection cable (designed for the built-in line-in connections on your computer), you may have an upgraded audio card that supports optical cable inputs. If this is the case, you need to convert the 3.5mm audio cable into a optical connection cable.
