View Full Version : Question about Phoebus SPDIF/side output

08-03-2012, 07:38 AM

I am interested in buying the Xonar Phoebus. I have quite a few items I would like to connect to them. They include the PC360s, Astro A50s, Logitech Z-5500, and the Razer Tiamat. I noticed from the specs that the rear speaker output is shared with with the SPDIF port. This means that I would have to unplug the rear output in order to plug in the optical cable right? Is there some sort of header that would allow me to have the SPDIF separate from the rear speaker output or would I have no choice but to swap the cables when I need to use one or the other. I hope it is clear what I would like to do. Thanks!

There is an onboard S/PDIF output header that you could use. Otherwise you would have no choice but to swap the connectors out for 7.1 surround.

Thanks for responding. I just ordered a Asus SPDIF bracket from Amazon so I will just connect that directly to the card in order to get a separate SPDIF port. Thanks again!
