Hey guys just though anyone might know how to get optical audio from my apple tv 2 to Logitech G51 speakers (http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/searchtools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=3304945)

This is what I have found so far:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16812232028

Anyone know if this needs to be plugged into the computer? Or can i just buy one of these: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16812339162

and it would supply the power.

Thank you in advance,

Phil

If I were you I would just buy a speaker that has optical input in it, because of the conversion from going optical to composite you are already loosing some audio quality.

But if you still want to go down this path, you could buy this optical to rca converter.

Hope this helps.

Thanks, Infiltrator, however I was looking for a converter that would still output 5.1 surround to my Logitech 5.1 speakers.

Thanks for the recommendation anyways though,

Phil
