4.0 surround

Hello everyone!

I have 2x 8240 and 2x 8250 speakers and I would like to combine them to the same system to create a 4.0 surround system. For almost a year now I've been searching for ways to connect my Mac mini (mid 2011) and TV (Panasonic TX-P65ST50Y) to my 4 Genelecs. I really don't want to invest anymore money to this than I need to.

The setup will be used for listening music and watching movies. The goal is to go all digital if possible.

Right now I'm using a Yamaha RX-V771 to control the audio source and from there going analog to the 2x 8250s.

How would you recommend to setup the system? Thank you for any answers!

All digital system would require some significant investments. Easiest and most straightforward solution is to keep using the Yamaha and just connect the surround speakers to it. Easy as ABC. :)
