Hello.

I want to use two set of speakers with my PC. I've been looking around a bit, and what I found was that s Y-split would work, however, as it's analog, the volume would be halved. I don't know have bad that would be, but I would like to know, if there was another way, for my PC to output to two set of speakers.

Thanks.
 
He might know some stuff but not this.
Splitting the output once will reduce the level, if at all, very slightly.
If it makes any difference at all it would take a small increase in volume settings on each pair of speakers to compensate.
If you were splitting over three times it might be an issue. Then you need to buffer the output so it won't drop at the lower impedance.

Why do you think the volume would be halved with a splitter? I used them all the time in A/V conference room setups and don't have issues. Maybe if you use headphones and split a few times there may be issues with driving the headphones.

A guy on another hardware forum said so. Sounded like he knew some stuff....
