So recently I got an Astro Mixamp for my A40's and when setting up I realized it uses an optical cable. Unfortunately my PC's motherboard doesn't have a slot for one so I was wondering about buying an optical to 3.5mm jack converter. I was curious to know if they're worth it, do they make the sound quality any worse or will my headset still be 7.1 surround sound? Linked below is the actual one I plan on getting, thanks for help in advance :)

I am pretty sure that your sound quality would be just fine and you can always return it if it does take away the 7.1 surround sound future although I doubt it does.
