Need help finalizing audio setup

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Just finished setting up my 5.1 system, the grin refuses to be wiped off my face ANYWAYS, I need some help setting up things software-side, to maximize listening experience.

First things first: I own the Logitech Z906, use the onboard Realtek audio on my motherboard.

The RealTek software looks like the attached picture. All settings are at default, Realtek software is set on 5.1, and I disabled all the stereo effects on the Z906 (stereo 3D, 4.1, 2.1). To enable the DTS surround, I can set the Realtek software to stereo, DTS on, and then mess with the stereo effect on the Z906. Don't know if that's worth it though.

Second attached picture shows the possible effects, anything of note to keep in mind?

Finally, if there's anything else to keep in mind, software you recommend, anything else, 'twould be lovely.

Thank you,
crazyap7

Realtek's audio suite is pretty straight forward. If you have DTS enabled it may be worth tinkering with the room correction so that your sweet spot is right where you normally sit. Other then that I can't really think of any software that is worth while. I know creative systems tend to be bass heavy so maybe adjust sub levels on the sub itself.
One of the biggest revelations I had in 5.1 was that a properly eq'd and leveled sub really rounds out the system properly rather than over powering it.
