On the card, aside from the connector we mentioned earlier, which is only for the loudspeaker outputs, there are only two 0.134-inch (3.5-mm) jacks. Obviously this isn't much compared to what you find with the high-end Audigy 2 cards. But fortunately these two connectors are multi-use. One is an input, the other an output. The input jack not only accepts analog line and microphone inputs, but also digital S/PDIF through the use of an optical or TOSLINK connector. The output also has an analog function usable with headphones and a digital function, also using an optical connector. You might find this a limited set of possibilities, but they do give you the essentials.
For the speaker outputs, you snap the breakout cable into the connector. At its end are three 3.5 mm female jacks that work the way the ones on Audigy 7.1 internal cards do: a three-point connector (green) for the front speakers, a four-point connector (black) for the rear channels and the right side channel, and a four-point connector (orange) for the center channel, subwoofer, and left side. You can connect three-point jacks to four-point outputs. The unused outputs are short-circuited. All you have to do is configure your speaker outputs to suit the equipment you have connected.
