    How to get optical cable working with a nuc6i5

    Allanf

      Hi all,

       

      If I buy one of these cables below and plug it into the headphone jack on the front of my NUC and the other end into an amp, will I be able to get 5.1 sound?

       

      Amazon.com: KabelDirekt (6 feet) Mini TOSLINK Optical Digital Audio Cable - PRO Series: Electronics

       

      Or will I need to use one of these:

      I'm hoping the cable will work but I have a feeling it won't!

       

      Thanks
