    Default A50 PC Connection Help

    I just recieved my A50 yesterday and I am confused on how to hook it up to my PC. When I hook up the transmitter to my PC do I have to connect bothh the Toslink and USB cable or can I connect the USB separately by using an adapter to connect it directly to an outlet just like the iphone charging cables? I know the Toslink cable is for Audio, so what is the USB cable to PC for? Is it just for power or does it control the mic?

    Hi Pinoy.

    The TOSLINK Optical Cable is for 7.1 Surround Sound from your computer, the USB Cable connects to power the transmitter and also enable the microphone for your games and programs.
