    Ok here's the deal I have my ps3 hooked up to my pc monitor but my monitor doesn't have built in speakers or audio out so to get audio out of my ps3 I need to use the optical audio slot In the back of the ps3 but my 2.1 speaker set only had a jack input so is there a cable that has a male optical audio cable on one side and a male 3.5mm jack on the other


    Ps would this work: http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B001IXV...ref=oss_product

    no, that product won't work as it is still only a optical cable..what you need is an analogue/digital converter like this:

    or this:

    you would then be able to use a RCA to 3.5mm adaptor to hook it into the speakers..
