i am upgrading my sound system from a creative 5.1 vx+t6160 to a asus xonar dx+ edifier s730...... i saw the GUI of DX it does not have 2.1 option it shows 2 channel 4 channel 6 channel 8 channel .....
but y dosent it show 2.1 setup... willo it b proper to pair the soundcard with edifier ??
Do the Edifier speakers come with a separate cable for the .1 (Subwoofer) connection that plugs into a special sound card port for the sub woofer?
I doubt it.
If you're using the Optical connectors then it automatically decodes the signal for all the channels.
I wouldn't worry about it too much unless I was using a HiFi 7.1 or .2 setup with a external DAC involved in it.
nope in the DX user manual it shows tht 1 line connects into the subwoofer ...its same as the standard 2.1 connection ........ i have no idea about optical cables etc ....... this is the first time i am paying so much attention to the sound system....
i want goood bass without distortion and clear sound .. no DAC ...
so it should be fine to run the DX with 2 channel output ?
