SoundBlaster Audigy from Dell

Just got a new Dell computer with the Soundblaster Audigy 2 soundcard...I got it specifically to hook up to my home Onkyo receiver....

It has a digital output on the soundcard, but the connection is different from any coaxial or optical connection that I've seen...

What kind of connection is this, and where can I get a cable to work this out?

Keep in mind, I really don't know much about soundcards....

Thanks, guys

Is the output optical? Chances are it's a mini coaxile plug. Get a mini-phone to RCA adapter and you'll be all set.

Thanks for the response...

Just discovered that it is a SPDIF coaxial mini plug...Can I get a mini coaxial cable from Radio Shack or Circuit City? I won't be able to get 5.1 sound if a use RCA cables correct?
