Xfi Prelude does have analog output, right?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Trying to get my Denon PMA510 amp working with it but whatever I do, I get high pitch noise from one speaker and that's it. Any ideas?

It has mini jacks so yes.

I meant the RCA connectors but if the minijacks are the only ones with analog signals, I'll have to compromise a bit then.

I believe those "rca connectors" actually are digital input/output. You need the small connector adaptors that the card came with to use it....

someone please correct me if i am wrong. The only analog outputs are the minijacks.

Found a link to the adaptors..

Those are TOSLINK optical adaptors but I can't use optical signal on the amp.

The two "RCA like" connectors are S/PDIF. They use optical (Toslink adapter) or coax cable. The only analogue connectors are the 3.5mm mini-jacks.

You will need a 3.5mm > RCA stereo cable to connect to your amp in analogue.

yes i agree, but what i am trying to tell you is ...those "rca connectors" are actually the Digital input/output. The card comes with the adaptors usually so they can be utilized via toslink. They are not analog RCA outputs.

Got the TOSLINK adaptors, don't have a digital input on the amp. So I have two options then: 1. Getting a 3.5mm minijack/RCA adaptor(which would make me compromise on the channel, since I use a headset when gaming), or get a new soundcard.

Connect the amp to the soundcard via 3.5mm minijack/RCA, then when you want to use headphones, just plug them into the headphone port on your amp.

Thought about that, a bit bodgy and I would have to split the headset cable.

Plus, going that route wouldn't exactly call for a stable signal input since the 3.5mm jacks are volume controlled.
