I have a computer with onboard audio and also a Asus DG Sound card. Both have the SPDIF Out port (Digital Optical Audio). I'm currently using Logitech X-540 5.1 computer speakers which are quite entry level. I have this old system (A Bose AV3-2-1 Media Center, complete set with speakers and subwoofer) lying around my house that is not being used, I figure I would try to see if I can hook it up and see if it will sound better.

1. Is it as simple as hooking up the digital audio cable from my computer to the system, and then setting the PC to output through the digital audio, and for the Bose to receive digital audio through an options menu?

2. How likely would these Bose speakers sound compared to my Logitechs?
