Good external sound card that can play all 5.1 speakers like they are 2.1

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey guys,

 

I recently purchased a set of Logitech z906 5.1 speakers but my mobo doesnt let me plug in all the speakers + i will have the same probleme has i had before when playing 2.1 audio, half the speaker set will stay silent.

Can anyone recomend an external sound card that can plug in all 5.1 sound system and play sound on all speakers no matter the type of audio signal?

Are you using SPDIF/optical?


I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

a 3.5mm jack is limited to 2 audio channels, try an optical cable

what?....i am not discussing the capabilities of the cable...the 3.5mm cable has 3 wires that connect to all speakers...and 3 wires that connect to a mobo with 3 slots for them(left/right/center sub) it has been like this since sound exists.........the limitation is on the soundcard....either she lets you play everything on all speakers or the "channels" are all separated and the will only play on the speakers corresponded to the audio signal....now...there are soundcards that "emulate" the 2.1 on a 5.1 digitaly and there are soundcards that do both...and soundcards that do this physicly because the channels are all connected inside the card......what i whant to know is what cards for PC do this so i can have all my speakers working at the same time.
