    I am trying to find an audio optical connecter that will help me use my Tritton surround sound amp and gaming headphones on my iMac. Is there a way to do this where you can get a optical audio converter to connect to macs so that you can connect the optical cable for the amp into the imac?

    The headphone socket doubles as the optical audio output. You just need a mini-toslink adapter and you can connect a toslink cable to your amp.

    Could you please elaborate .... here is the link to headphones i have

    The headphones go in the amp with a round looking connector like the one on old keyboards. The amp then connects to ps3 or a computer through the fiber optic cable into the fiber optic input but new imacs and macbook pros dont have that????

    Can typical MBP encode and output Dolby Digital?

    I am curious about a 5.1 USB headset for Mac for watching DVDs and MKVs in 5.1:D
