  1. 5.1 Surround Sound


    Happy New Year!


    Unfortunately, I have exhausted all possible issues and am turning to forums. The issue I have is that I setup my Z506 5.1 system that I bought for Christmas. However, not matter what I do I get the sound in stereo. However, when I do the windows configure option in the sound control panel I am able to hear all five speakers. The moment I try to play a game, watch a movie, it is in stereo. Does anyone have a clue how to fix this?

    :)

    Good surround sound headset

    I know you say you're not that guy, but stepping into the $250+ range really brings a change in build quality that might have you never having to buy another set. Otherwise, getting 6 speakers with decent sound in a headset is hard, and that's what you are asking for, and I have no suggestions, but just a bump up the list. *Stick Out Tongue 5.1 Surround Sound :p

    Hi Jeka,

    There are some reasons why you don't get the 5.1 surround sound. Some of these are caused by the type of audio format, how the file was encoded, if the file supports 5.1 surround sound and such. For us to determine what's causing
    the concern more precisely, please provide information on the following:

  4. 5.1 Surround Sound

    5.1 surround sound

    Just upgraded to latest Windows 10. Surround sound is not on audio channel menu. Only "stereo" is listed. Surround sound is also now not working on ONKYO receiver. Windows says I have latest sound driver.

    All other help messages talk about realtek. I just have what came with Dell computer.
