Basically virtual surround over 3.5mm?

Well you could do it that way too... But that would be kind of odd having a 3.5mm cable sticking out the front of your case.
I know what kind of dumb idea is that. I guess it can be done but seems pretty odd.

If they're all outputs it makes more sense but you'd need four of them (normal headphone jacks) to deliver true 8 channel audio. IMO beyond 5.1 is overkill anyway. I'd rather have 200w 5.1 channel output to 5 full range drivers and a sub in transmission lines than 1000w split across 7 satellites with a sub in a ported box (God forbid bandpass) tuned to 55hz to save space.

Exactly. That's the only way you could get 8 real channels and that's weird af.
Yeah it's totally weird, and to be clear I was just trying to figure out how it was supposed to work. I am running a 2.1 setup with a small desktop amp and that all I intend to run.
