What is the easiest and cheapest way to get audio from my computer to three receivers? I have to get a new sound card so that I can have access to RCA outputs to begin with. Are there sound cards with multiple simultaneous outputs. Or is it best to just get a cheap sound card with an RCA output and get a cheap RCA splitter box. I don't need to have audio to all three receivers at the same time, so a switch would be okay.

Two Y-splitters should do the trick.

I didn't know they made an rca splitter. I found one now though.

Will I run into problems if I have to do an rca run of about 30 feet and I use a splitter or two first?

I've done it for that length of run with no problems, you could always run dual 'subwoofer cable'(coax cable just RCA terminated) for each side just to be sure you do not loose any signal in the wiring itself.
