Hooking 2 Systems Up To Computer??

    I have an old Audigy 2

    I was wondering if there was some sort of y-adapter I could use to plug into my sound card and then from that run cable to supply stereo to 2 seperate sound systems, I already have a mini to stereo rca jack going, but Id like to add an older set up to the mix to give an additional room the benefit of the same source material.

    Is this doable and what exactly will I need?

    I have been thinking about how to go about doing this and I just start confusing myself. :\

    Does your mini go to left and right audio or just to a single rca? They sell rca splitters at radio shack or even walmart. It id just a Y adapted with either one male to two female or vise versa. Or did I totally misread your post and not answer anything?

    right now i have a mini that goes into 2 male rca that hooks into my receiver.

    the end result i need is is 2 rcas going into my receiver and another 2 rcas going into my other system

    Your diagram is correct. Except some labelling. The top 2 black lines would be right and the bottom 2 black lines would be left or vise versa. The lines are, however, going to the right places.

    This way you have a left and right input into each receiver.
