I recently bought a Logitech 5500Z model (see link please)

to compliment my older Philips speakers (please see the link)

I want to get a 7.1 Surround System out of these 7 speakers. The Logitech speakers require three 3.5 mm audio jacks, the Philips speakers require one 3.5 mm audio jack.
will a sound card like this support all 7 speakers/four 3.5 mm jacks ?

Can you tell us what computer specs you have ? I would also Not purchase something that was "Refurbished". ( not knowing why it was returned ).

Refurbished has a bad wrap. Usually a refurbished piece of electronics has had a problem and sent back to the factory where a technician will do a thorough going over, this more attention than what ordinarily would get. If it has an equivalent warranty to a new purchase I don't see any problem with purchasing it. I bought a Netgear router which was refurbished, I saved almost one hundred dollars and have not had a bit of trouble with it. I will also explain that I've worked in the audio industry dealing with electronics, so I know from where I speak.:thumbup2:

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
