Okay, this is no good. I tried the blind thing and I managed only to connect my digital camera to the sub output and my razor does not sound very good in stereo only. On top of that, I got a shock trying to find the wall socket.

It is really hard to inter-connect all these devices with my eyes closed... I wonder how they do it at CNRC? ;\)

I think you are supposed to be standing on a rubber mat while making the connections.

I just realized that my laptop has an SPDIF output. I connected the audiobytes to this and, although I haven't done any A/B tests, it now sounds a little harsher than the headphone output I was using. What's SPDIF anyway?

Some Pretty Darned Inane Format.

Actually, it's Sony/Phillips Digital Interconnect Format. Basically it's the digital audio (compressed or not) interconnect format and is typically carried over optical/toslink cables or 75-ohm coax.

SPDIF is a digital output. In other words, you must have a dual function jack there, otherwise you'd probably have destroyed your speakers.

I figure if the jack fits, it must be compatible. I did make sure to lower the amp's gain though.

The sound is more detailed...but harsher. I now need to tweak the SRS Sandbox settings.

It would have been a square wave.

To clarify, SPDIF is the same protocol as ye olde coax and optical connections on audio equipment.
