Hey everyone! So recently I just found an older surround sound system I had won a couple years back and I decided I'd try and hook it up to my motherboard so I could game with 5.1 Surround Sound, the problem is i can't get it to work and idk if I bought the right adapter and cables etc.

Here's the link to my Mobo: http://www.asrock.com/mb/Intel/Z77%20Extreme4/

Here's the link to my Surround Sound System (yes I know its a cheap one, but I got it for free lol)

AND

finally here's the links to the three things I purchased.

http://www.monoprice.com/Product/?c_id=102&cp_id=10236&...



The reason I bought these 3 was bc my Motherboard uses an S/PDIF out, and my surround sound system uses and optical/coaxial. So I wanted to go S/PDIF to Coaxial.

Any help is appreciated thanks :)

Limited information for this surround system on the web.
Found an ebay listing for it.
http://www.ebay.com/ctg/Coby-DVD-938-5-1-Channel-Home-Theater-System-/77196657
The description included this on connectors:
Inputs Analog Audio x 1
Outputs Analog Audio x 1, Component x 1, Composite x 1, Digital Audio Coaxial x 1

If this is correct, the only input available is analog.
This is probably made up of six individual RCA plugs.
This means you will need three 3.5mm to 2xRCA cables (front L/R, surround L/R, centre/LFE).
