    You will need a device in the middle that coverts the digital signal to light.

    I thought the R5.1MT came with both a digital coax and digital optical input! If it has digital coax then you run a wire direct from epia to amp!

    can someone please clarify which way im supposed to hook up this amp to my M10000?
    do i use that converter to go from mobo to converter to toslink cable to amp?
    or do i just use regular coax rca cables from the SPDIF of the mobo to the coax input on the amp?
    thanks guys.

    I tried using a regular rca cable from the coax input on the amp to the SPDIF on the EPIA VIA M10000 mobo and it would work.
    Do i need to get that converter to work?
    i thought i could use coax input.

    the coax input is still a digital signal while rca is still analog. if your amp supports digital, you might want to look at getting some kind of digital converter for your sound card, or add a sound card with digital(optical sounds great) out. my home computer connectes to my theater system via toslink, with a audigity w/ optical out add on card. you may want to read up on toslink, because the longest cable i have been able to successfuly find is 6ft. not sure if it has anything to do with the specfication.

    do i have to connect to the sound card? i wanted to use the SPDIF on the motherboard.
    and i only need the cable to be about a foot.

    is there no other way to do this without the digital converter?
    thanks
