7.1 Audio With 5.1 Speakers

Recommended Posts

hey all,

fairly simple question and i think the answer is yes but i just wanted to make sure. i have 5.1 speakers but im thinking of buying an audigy 2 zs wich is 7.1, will i still be able to run 5.1 or will it suffer and cut out some of the sound?

thanks

 

also what do you think about this card:

It will be fine. What it means is it will support a 7.1 setup but you can set it for 5.1. Im using an audgy value which a ZS with out the extra crap with 2.1 speakers...I think it supports 7.1.

Yeah it is way better than the audigy... IF you have digital surround sound speakers (IE orange coaxial Rca plug or optical) If you don't have digital there isn't much of difference and then u go for audigy...

 

And remember the X-Fi is coming along

If you're still going for the Audigy 2 line, go for the Audigy 2 ZS (Not Gamer Edition). The Audigy 2 ZS is the exact same as the Gamer but without the extra games, that's all.
