I want to connect my 5.1 Home TheatreSystem to my iMac. I read in the Apple site that we can do it as long as we coonect an optical cable to it. Does someone know which cable is required and where i can buy, with international shipping.

I have my 20 inch Intel iMac connected to a Sony home theater system. The cable you need is a digital optical miniplug to standard TOSlink. Here in Japan you can pick them up in any electronics store. The cable I'm using is a Sony POC-15AB, 1.5m in length. The sound is amazing!
