Hi everybody!

Question for Soundblaster users:

I have a Soundblaster Z in my PC and 5.1 surround speakers. I was wondering if I need to check the "surround" checkbox in the SBX Pro Studio tab of the Creative Control Panel, or if that is only for virtual surround, say if I had only stereo speakers.

I do hear the surround speakers just fine... I just don't want to be piling on virtual surround on top of real surround.

Any help will be greatly appreciated!

From my understanding, SBX replaced CMSS-3D, which was for headphone virtual surround. If you have 5.1 speakers, don't enable SBX, it'll likely have a negative effect on the audio quality.
