    true 5.1
    Hey guys, just got my brand new iMac. I have 5.1 Logitech with the 3 optical cables. Black,green,orange. But iMac has only one port. I cane across this:

    Will this work for me in combination with the miniplug to toslink for true surround sound from my 5.1 speakers?

    Yes that should do the trick.

    Looks like it will output 5 channels of sound - whether those channels are correctly decoded and output to the correct channel or not...

    Check the reviews for it at Amazon - particularly Monica's and the comments - link - but I'd read all/most of them so you know what you're getting up front.

    Thanks for that link. Probably saved me a few bucks. I have been thinking about what needs to be updated/upgraded in my media setup to shift away from DVD to stored files.
