Compatable sound cards with Klipsh promedia GMX D 5 1

I have a Klipsh promedia GMX D 5 1 speaker system which I have usedfor the past 5 years with a Creative Sound Blaster audigy 2 ZS soundcard.

Recently I upgraded my PC which included a new Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Xtreme Audio Soundcard.

Unfortunately the new card and my Klipsh system are incompatable. (No Sound)

I Know Creative used to make a plug in adapter device to accommodate the digital signal, but that device seems to be no longer available.

Does anyone know where I can find a plug in adapter device or cansuggest a current sound card which will work with my Klipsh system.

  1. Hello Malcolm. Welcome to the Forum.

    Let's see. You have got a new system card but with an 'old' sound system. It should work. I don't see why? I would try to see if I could get any good sound systems...brand new. That is what I would do. Nothing expensive, but not cheap.
  2. Hello Malcome,

    I belive your looking for this information: http://www.klipsch.com/na-en/support/faqs/regarding-soundcard-connectivity-details/ :)
  3. HT | Omega's solution have a whole range of cards at www.htomega.com for you to choose, we can help select a card provided we know what sort of connectivity you prefer, analog or optical.

    HT | Omega Claro Plus+ - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16829271003 - $175
    HT | OMEGA Claro Halo - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16829271004 - $200

    I'd ditch the x-fi from creative - they got progressively worse after the 2ZS platinum. I loved it when it was still alive :P and judging from the speaker set you have, you've taken good care to make it last that long - so your somewhat of an audiophile and a moviephile?

    The HT's are a great solution :)
  4. I have the same sound system. Basically you need a card that does digital out, as the ProMedia has no analog-ins. Both sound cards listed in my sig will drive this sound setup.

    Note, if you want to game in 5.1 you need a sound-card that can re-encode surround to a digital-out. You need to look for Dolby Digital Live, or DTS live branding.
