The Audio Board's Frequently Asked Questions, Pre-answered!

Recommended Posts

Hello, I couldn’t see an answer to this. I’m be asking a really dumb question. So does it matter where you plug in your headset? I recently bought a Asus board that comes with supremeFX. 
 

front of case or back on motherboard is a what I’m asking. 
 

oh and is I wanted speakers. Is optical better or your traditional green plug-in 
 

sorry for asking. Just trying to learn more. And I couldn’t really find an answer.

you rmotherboard audio will usually be better as it will be better shielded and usually a lot cleaner whilce case manufaturers aren't great at naking their stuff shielded or sound great. they are more forcused on form over overall function generally.

 

for the gree plug output is analog and optical is digital. speakers and headphones are analog devices which means requires a DAC  to decode digital signals  into an analog signal.

Hello everyone.

For year and half im proud owner of Sound Blaster Zx sound card, and thus far its been great, esspecially for my Audio Technica MTH-50. Recently i bought new set of speakers ( Logitech Z623 ) and i been running into problems. You see, whenever i wanna swap to either using headset or speakers i literally disconect 3.5mm jack on the back to plug in another device, wich is fine. My issue is whenever im in Sound Blaster Pro Studio control panel, under Speakers / Headphones tab i cannot switch from Headphones to Speakers (when speakers are connected to sound card). Whenever i try to do that, there is literally no sound whatsoever in Speakers mode, when i click Headphones - sound is back again. Now i would like to know why i cannot get that option in control panel to switch and why its always stuck just on headphones. If anyone haves ideas or any other advice it be greatly appreciated i tried googling issues - no luck whatsoever. Im also using latest drivers from official SB website, ty in advance for help.

*question*

I'd say it's a multichannel setting you don't need to worry about.
