    pico itx question

    ok, so im still working on my set up and I have a pico itx system. Now i've seen that the pico can do 4 channel audio output as well as 5.1 or more..I would like to know where can i get the cables to get at least 4 channel audio. cause everything on a pico board is connected by pin headers. I got the manual and understand it somewhat, but where do I get the pin header cables, its an aritgo kit thats doing 2 channel sounds now

    so my two questions are
    Where do i get that pin header cable?
    and
    is it worth to do 4 channel audio or just split the two channels into 4 cause im am going to use an amplified system set up.?

    ok on the page u have me click downloads and at the bottom u will se User Manual, go to page #23. There us a pinout for your Audio and manual is self explanatory. If u use 4ch then u use Line out L/R connected to GRD and Suround L/R each connected to ground

    u may also want to use ferrite rig to reduce noice is you are not using spdif
