    If you buy a decent (surround) sound card then it will have jacks for all your RCA leads. There are RCA-to-phone cables and adapters available. Just make sure you get the stereo versions that make one phone plug out of two RCA ones.

    Why do you insist on ending up with only one phone plug?

    If you buy a 5.1 soundcard then it will have all the jacks for analog output to match the 6 RCA inputs in your home theatre.
