I have a Plextor PX-708A DVD/CD unit installed in my PC. This unit has a SPDIF-Out 2-pin connector which the manual suggests connecting to a sound board that supports SPDIF In. The A7N8X-Deluxe has a 6-pin SPDIF connector with the following pins: 1 - SPDIF-In 2 - Ground 3 - +5v 4 - not used 5 - SPDIF-Out 6 - Ground I would like to connect the PX-708A to the motherboard via the SPFIF connection since I believe that I would avoid having my system convert an analog audio signal (if I connect it via the analog cable) to digital out. However, I am not sure this makes sense or can be done... Can I simply connect the PX-708A's digital out to the pins 1 & 2 (above)? Is there a special cable that I need? Will this provide better digital sound output? Will the SPDIF connector on the back panel carry the digital signal?
