Im not sure what the question is, but if your inferring that the pro-medias have a 3.5mm(1/4") input cable, then yes it does.

As far as best quality, they are not the best quality, or best sounding that you can get. However at their price point on sale, they are one of the best "multimedia" speaker sets you can purchase. Most here prefer 2.0 studio monitors, and although I have a set of pro-medias I have to agree with studio monitors.

Right out of the box, my volume potentiometer is bad. I need to jiggle it to make it work correctly. So in terms of quality, I would have to say through my own experience, and the experience of a few other forum members as well as some reviews I have read, Klipsches quality is not the best it has been in the past few years.

The only cable that comes out of the powered sub to interface with your computer has a 3.5mm (1/4") jack. It does not have the capability to use a digital source.

Do you have a Best Buy around you? They usually have a few in stock. I know all the Best Buys around me all have at least 4 in stock.
