I want to connect it via usb, to output to 5.1 or 7.1. However the output should be 'line-out', so they connect directly to amplifiers. is this the device for me? Or is it just a matter of limiting volume level?

Asked by: Leo Komninos
This is totally dependent on what you are wanting to achieve , and what you are trying to connect up to them .
