So i'm currently shopping for a ultra-wide monitor and I've noticed that the one i'm possibly interested in doesn't have a digital audio out to get audio from my 5.1 surround sound receiver and wanted to know how i could get analog(3.5mm headphone jack) to optical cable(not toslink) for my receiver. Also i'm not audio savy so hopefully i didn't get any terms wrong.
It's basically an external sound card with 5.1 outputs.
i actually found this by accident but wouldn't a sound card with optical out solve my issue or something similar? Since most of the time, i'd be watching movies or shows on my pc so having a direct connection would solve this issue. Right?
UPDATE: i connected my optical cable directly to my motherboard and it works .
