It does have a FP port, but like I said in an earlier post, it's not auto sensing and you will have to make the switch manually in alsamixer.
I'm not sure what they are called, but they are two of those towers that you hook up to a reciever. My reciever is a cheap one, only has stereo, not even HDMI. I run a 5 metre long 3.5mm-to-composite cable to the reciever. A splitter could solve the lack of a FP connector like you said, I guess. I can't really buy a new sound card this month anymore though, since I decided to go for the new graphics card first. So I still have time to research.Edited by xeekei - 10/14/13 at 5:33am
