Hey all so I recently got this new Motherboard: https://www.amazon.com/MSI-Solution-Intel-Z170A-Motherboard/dp/B016I0X13I/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1466818711&sr=8-1&keywords=msi+z170a+pro
I currently have a nice headset that I use for gaming and I've been looking into getting a surround sound set of speakers so I can watch movies and listen to music and do other things while not having the headset on. My question to you all is how would I go about hooking up a set of 5.1 surround sound speakers to my computer? For example on these speakers: https://www.amazon.com/Logitech-Surround-Sound-Speakers-Z506/dp/B003VAK1FA/ref=sr_1_2?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1466818829&sr=1-2&keywords=5.1+speakers
I see the speakers have an optical plug but my motherboard does not. How would I go about hooking these up to my computer without using a receiver, if that even matters at all. I don't want to fork out another $100+ just for a receiver when all I need is some simple surround sound for my pc. I will not be using these speakers for anything other than my pc. For example would I need some type of extender that will convert a plug into a different type? If so, what kind of adapter would I need. Also if anyone can suggest some different speakers that are perhaps cheaper or even more expensive to fit my needs. I would say anywhere in the price range up to $150. I don't NEED these particular speakers but I feel they have decent reviews and would fit my needs, unless you guys tell me otherwise. Thanks in advance for your time everyone.
