Does anyone know of 2.1 speakers at least as good as the Logitech Z623 that have an optical input or know if HW-J450/ZA soundbar works with PC?

I'm looking for something that I can use with both my TV and PC (my newer TV only supports optical with no headphone jack). I could go with a surround system, but I'd rather not spend that much money if I can get away with it.

If there aren't any speakers that will fit my needs, I'm also considering a soundbar (maybe the HW-J450/ZA). Does anyone know if it can hook up to the TV with optical and my PC with the aux in?

Depends on your budget and what you are looking to setup, but for something like $10-25 you can get an AD converter to convert the optical signal to analog stereo. See link below as an example.

That may or may not help you with getting the subwoofer involved depending on the model of the speaker.

That said, PC speakers and speakers for TV setup are pretty much different animals often with different impedences as well. And for a TV setup, the proper way to do it is with a receiver. Then you can run the audio to whatever speakers\config you like including a 2.1 setup if you really wanted to. I would not advise trying to dual purpose the speakers.
