I use my guitar or mic into a preamp and then into the line in of the soundcard. To be honest I wasn't even sure what the optical/spdif was for. Is that to plug in things like MP3 players or? The speakers I'm using are a lower end set of 5.1 Altec Lansing that were maybe $100 five years ago or so. They work well enough for me though I will probably upgrade at some point. My main focus is getting my sound up and adequately running at the moment. This Creative just isn't doing it for me. Thanks for the replies so far.
