I am using a set of Logitech Z5500 5.1 speakers. 


In my old PC they were connected to an Asus Xonar D2X sound card.  The Logitech control pod connects to the sound card via a standard set of cables (green for 2 front speakers, black for 2 rear speakers and orange for center speaker and sub).

I recently got a new PC with an Asus essence STX ii 7.1 sound card and I don't know if the card is faulty or I don't have the right cabling. The STX comes with a main board and a daughter board.


The main board has inputs for 2/2.1 speakers, headphones, line in and SPDIF out

The daughter board has the inputs for the 7.1 speakers

What I need to know is on the daughter board it has inputs for each individual speaker (front right, front left, center, sub, rear right and rear left).  Does that mean it will not work with my Logitech speakers?   The cables coming from the Logitech control pod are  3 jacks (green black orange) and it looks like the STX sound card wants 6 cables/jacks.


Can anyone please tell me how I get my speakers working with the STX sound card?
