Audio Squee

Finally got together with UPS and after rehearsals I disconnected my analog surround sound PC speakers (it took almost an hour of wire-untangling!) and installed a set which takes optical digital input. It sounded great after I figured out how to tell the mixer to use the digital output. Windows Media Player 11 is not working well with the digital output - it refuses to send audio from any files, and I had to set the CDs to analog for those to be heard. Will have to do some research on this later in the week.

What they can play sounds great, though.

My only gripe is the subwoofer is way huge, and the speakers are all a little bigger than I would have liked. Easy to set up though. It's a Logitech Z-5500 Digital system.
