Connecting multiple speaker sets to PC as Separate playback devices


Jun 12, 2016
Hey all,

I have two different speaker sets, a 2.1 and a 5.1, and I was wondering if there's any way I can connect both to my PC as separate outputs so that I can swap between them when I need to. My 5.1 set is located next to my Living Room TV which I use as another monitor, and my 2.1 set is on my desk with my Computer Monitor. My motherboard has the 3 standard blue/green/pink audio jacks in the back, and thus far I've been swapping the two speaker sets by physically swapping the plugs back and forth. Is there a better way, like say some kind of splitter that will allow me to plug in both at once and have them register as separate playback devices that I can swap between?
