    Surround Sound


    Would the issue with surround sound have anything to do with the fact that Microsoft is working with the companies that license Dolby Surround and other surround sound processing to have a monthly fee for these features?


    This does not occur on my upgraded WIN 7 to Win 10 anymore but only on my new Win 10 install.


    If this is the case how will higher education and entertainment creators be able to use your product? This issue has been around since 2017 and has not been addressed publicly.


    It would be better to publicly state what is happening than to lock discussions and say nothing.

    :)

    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 Surround Sound :p

  3. 5.1 Surround sound in windows 10

    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:

    • The type of file that you're trying to play.

    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.
