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?

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.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.

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.
