    I've done some searching but I'm a little confused.

    I have a 09 Macbook Pro 5,5 with one minijack audio port I've used for headphones. Am I correct that could use this to output digital audio to my amplifier (5.1)?

    What cable would I use? Can somebody send me a link for breakout boxes for my laptop or cables? I'd like to use it with Vudu and HDX with surround.

    thanks ahead of time for help!

    Yep. Just look at the pictures provided by MonoPrice (you need to actually click on them to get a larger version).

    Thanks for the link. I went ahead and ordered it. In my googling I found this as well.

    Pricey, seems like a luxury item. I can see where it would be handy but that price! Ouch! :eek:
