    I plan on getting a 24" imac and the logitech Z-5500 speakers. If I hook the speakers up with a 1/8th optical digital out and plug it in to the toslink optical digital in will I have any problem getting true 5.1 sound on the imac?

    You'll only get 5.1 when Dolby Digital is playing, it will be 2ch otherwise.

    Unless the Logitech system has some psuedo 5.1 that spreads 2ch.
