  1. Problem with 5.1 surround sound


    I use Sony digital audio/video control center and have a problem with 5.1 surround sound system. It is just not working. I checked with Xbox and everything was OK. But with my Windows 10 PC the rear RCA jack audio driver doesn’t want to output 5.1 it only outputs two speakers and the sub

    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 Problem with 5.1 surround sound :p

    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.
