Connecting an External Audio Monitor
There are two primary issues with monitoring your project’s audio using the computer’s
built-in audio system:
• The built-in system cannot play surround sound audio. The audio is first downmixed
to stereo, then played.
• The built-in system cannot play DTS audio.
There are two common approaches to connecting an external audio monitor:
• Connecting a suitable AC-3 or DTS decoder to the computer’s optical digital audio
output (also known as an S/PDIF output)
• Connecting a suitable AC-3 or DTS decoder to the computer’s FireWire or USB port
