will an external sound card work with consoles

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
My 5.1 Logitech z506 speakers connect with 3 stereo jacks which i have in my pc
It also has rca connection for consoles but the sound is awful, the rear speakers are loud and distorted
I was hopeing to get an external sound card such as this
http://www.amazon.co.uk/External-Sound-Card-Channel-Audio/dp/B003TO3KHY/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1369671045&sr=8-2&keywords=external+sound+card

I have an xbox360 but the new consoles are out at xmas so i need a solution. The xbone has hdmi and toslink connections by the looks of it and the ps4 is yet to be shown.

I want to put the 3 stereo wires into the card and put the toslink cable from the console
