    Hello what a coincidence, as I just purchased those bad-boys too! Now those speakers are designed for a 5.1 channel surround sound setup. Basically this means you need a sound card that will support it such as the Sound Blaster Live! 5.1, The Sound Blaster Audigy/Audigy 2, Guillemot Hercules GameSurround Fortissimo III 7.1, etc. Once you get one of these cards ensure you have the latest drivers from the manufacters website, and then enjoy the surround sound :D

    Are you sick of poor quality 128k mp3's that sound inferior to regular CD's you buy in the store? Do you long for the exact sound of a CD with absolutly no quality loss, and at practically half the size of a normal CD? CD's get scratched all the time, and FLAC is great for archiving all those good copies of your classic rock, and backing them up to save forever. FLAC unlike mp3, or ogg vorbis is what is called a lossless format. This means that no quality whatsoever is lost from the origianl disk. Lossy formats such as ogg vorbis, wmv, and moreover mp3 are usually flat sounding, and full of hissing and dullness because they discard and literally throw out important information that controls how good the CD will sound. Using FLAC will ensure the crystal-clear clarity that you can expect from a freshly opened CD. Instead of flimsy CD cases that snap and CD's that scratch easily, and are inevitably summoned to a poor scratched up death; FLAC files can be stored in a tough metal box known as your Hard Disk. FLAC putting life back into digital audio. If you own legit copies of CD's and seek for them pre-FLAC'd for all your digital listening needs please shoot me a PM for more information.

    Nice choice of speakers. ;) Basically, what you'll need to do is use the cable that came with the speakers (with the green, yellow and black connectors) and plug them into the back of the little speaker control box, and the other 3 ends into the appropriate ports on your Audigy. What you then have to do is go into either your Audigy Speaker setup and tell it that you have a 5.1 speaker system connected.

    Once you've done that, you'll have to make sure that you've set the input type on the little speaker box thing to 'Direct', and the setting beneath to either "PL2 Movie' or "PL2 Music". Alternatively, if you have an Audigy with the front 5 1/2" bay, then you can use a fibre optic cable to hook the speakers up as well.
