I just got a new motherboard (Abit IC7-Max3) with built in AC97 & 6.1 surround sould. The problem is that my Boston Accoustics BA7500G ($300) speakers no longer work.
I am told by BA that the speakers are digital & need a digital signal. Abit tells me that on the IC7-Max3, the 2 SPDIF ports put out a digital signal.
My BA7500G's connected to my old PC via the 1/8" mini-jack into a SoundBlaster card. I nolonger have the soundcard.
How do I connect my speaker's mini-jact to the SPDIF output??
I'd appreciate any help you kind folks can give me.
