    No optical connection? it's easy to miss as it's covered by a black flap. If you do have one, it's an easy job, just Toslink cable between your new Mac, and the sound system

    I've thought about various solutions..running the cables into a box which outputs via optical or 3.5mm jack, but the bad news is it would cost you more to do that than it would to buy a cheap DTS system with optical or 3.5mm connection options built in.

    Best bet IMO? Sell the Creative setup to a Windows user and buy yourself something more compatible.

    Try the marketplace section here....it's free to advertise so you won't lose money that way. Sadly I'm afraid you are right, that speaker system was great in its day, but times have moved way on sinch then....Prices too.
