    5.1 Audio for MacBook Pro
    I got some very nice Logitech 5.1 Z-5300e speakers for Christmas and I have a MacBook Pro. The cable that comes from the sub has three mini RCA connectors , one for left and right channels, one for the center channel, and one for the rear channels. On the sub it has a setting for 2 channels, 4 channels, or 5.1 channels and if you use 2 channels, you plug in only 1 of the mini RCA cords into the laptop (2 cables if your computer supports 4 channel audio, and all 3 if your computer supports 5.1).

    I thought that a MacBook pro did support 5.1 channel audio through the line out. Is there a way to get the 3 cables down to 1 so I can connect the speakers to my MacBook Pro and still have true 5.1 surround sound? Or do I need to buy an external sound card? Thanks!

    Nice speakers... I think that you would need to buy an external sound card.. such as this one.. but i dont know if it works with mac:
    Mac Pro (Early 2009) 8 Core 2.26 GHz, 6 GB Ram, 640 GB Drive. Dell 2408WFP.
