How to configure USB speakers with S2716DG for two audio sources

This question is not answered

I have Windows 7 on an Apple MacBook Air. The laptop is connected to the Dell S2716DG via Displayport. The laptop is also connected to a USB hub. USB speakers are connected to this hub. So far I have only used the laptop with this display so running audio through the USB hub to the USB speakers has not been an issue.

Now I am buying an Nvidia Shield streaming and gaming console. I intend to connect this to the S2716DG as well, via the remaining HDMI port.

Is there a way that I can run audio to the USB speakers via the display so that I can use the same speakers for both the audio coming from the laptop and from the Nvidia Shield console? What is the correct way to connect the various devices involved?
