I have an Edifier DA5000 Pro 5.1ch speaker. I would like to connect that speaker to my laptop. But the speaker has 3 cables, whereas my laptop only has 1 port for audio output.
This is what the back of the woofer looks like


So can someone suggest me something?

Nope, actually that is the solution, you have 2.0 output on the laptop, that's it, so you need something that will get you 5.1 out, like a usb soundcard or a new laptop.

I'd suggest you lose the attitude as well.

But you didn't answer my query :/
Nevertheless, the guy above you said something about soundcards. What are they called? I've used soundcards on my pc before. Never heard about a soundcard for a laptop
