I just got the astros a40 and I really want to use the 7.1 sound I know the headsets jack doubles as a optical port I already have the toslink to 3.5mm but I don't know how set it up after that do I have to download something I would really want step by step instruction.

The G75 only has a 3.5 jack. Not getting 7.1 out of that system sorry.

Did you get the a40's with the mix amp? Id so then the mix amp provides the 7.1 through USB. If you go tthe newer "pc version" without the mix amp then you wont be able to get 7.1...

You're both wrong, it's already been confirmed long ago that the G75 can do both 5.1 and 7.1 through SPDIF using a toslink adapter. The headphone jack doubles as a optical output.

If you have the A40 with the MIXAMP PRO the 5.1 and 7.1 it’s going to be done by the MIXAMP but only for movies with DD5.1. Sadly the G75 doesn’t have DDL (Dolby Digital Live) so your games will be just stereo. Sorry for my English.1873118732

The problem is not with the Astros it’s the G75 motherboard it doesn’t have DDL. Use the A40's with a game if you don’t like how they sound send them back. Do you have the MIXAMP?

I have the Mixamp pro but can't I use a external sound card that has dolby digital live and that supports 7.1 sound

Cartaspr is right, for 5.1/7.1 to work it has to be encoded in 5.1/7.1 and support pass-through. So any video or audio you play that's encoded in 5.1/7.1 and supports pass-through will work, but most games are not encoded in 5.1/7.1 and do not generate audio in 5.1/7.1 on the fly. For most games, you can choose Dolby Pro Logic or Bypass on the receiver/headphones. The surround receiver/headphones will still try to "upscale" to surround.

Yes you can and there are some external sound cards that support DDL like the ASUS Xonar U3, I’m actually thinking on buying it.

Yes it is 5.1/7.1 it haves a mini TOSLINK on the headphone jack and supports Dolby® Digital Live/Dolby® Headphone /Dolby® Virtual Speaker /Dolby® Pro-Logic II

I just picked up a creative Recon USB adapter. For headphone gaming on a notebook I think it is hard to beat for positional audio on stereo headphones. Plus you can use any headphones with it..
