Why does the USB headset show the Digital Output (S/PDIF) port?

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


Hi guys,

I have a USB headset that the module is Edifier USB K800.
Plug it into the PC's usb port, and then I found "Digital Output (S/PDIF)" audio port as below.

Would you please tell me why the Digital Output (S/PDIF) port has been shown, and how to verify if this USB headset really have the output function of Digital Output (S/PDIF), and how to close this audio port.

Thanks a lot!
