I just did the same in the SB control panel and it's starting to sound a lot better.

By the way, my speakers have the single green L/R connection, no separate connection for the sub.

If that's the case, don't select a 5.1 and uncheck the rear speakers. Instead just select stereo and up the bass on the back of your sub or in the mixer.

Just installed my soundblaster z but am having a problem. Where do I connect my speakers to? The headphone aux input? This will work only if I have the software set to headphones. If I set it to speakers I have no sound.

Edit: Nevermind. I feel like an idiot. #3 is the answer. You think anything could of happened to my speakers or soundcard by plugging in my speakers to the headphone connection #2?

I've got the creative ZX and while it looks great and sounds nice, i have an issue.

I Connected my Gigaworks G500 5.1 to it via the standard green, orange and black cables. Its all set to 5.1, and sound does play through all speakers. The issue is that randomly it will only play music through the front left, rear right or front left, rear left and sub or centre, front right and sub. It would the play normally through all 5 speakers and then play randomly again through any speakers it wants to.

Do anyone else who has this sound card have the same issue or knows how to fix it?

Thanks

I do not own a receiver and instead own 2 sets of Klipsch pro media 2.1(4.2,4.0 w/e). I would like to have my PS3 audio connected to my sound card/speakers instead of just the TV speakers. With my Sound Blaster Z can I just buy an optical audio toslink cable and connect it from my ps3 to the SB Z's SPDIF In? I saw someone else on this thread mention a similar idea but it was utilizing a receiver so I just wanted to make sure I can do this simply by buying a cable like this. http://www.amazon.com/AmazonBasics-Digital-Optical-Audio-Toslink/dp/B001TH7GSW/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1364289931&sr=8-1&keywords=toslink.

Follow up question. Once the connection is made, and I adjust the settings on the ps3, can I assume that I would then have the choice of using my headphones or my speakers without making any adjustments?

Pretty sure you can go Optical on the PS3 to the Optical IN (if available) on the Z (I know the ZxR has it)
post #269 of 5498
Hey Guys,

All this information has been a very very informative read.

My question is (and this is going to sound really stupid >.<) How much better would these speakers be in comparison to the Audigy 2 ZS?

I've had that card for years now and it's always done me well but recently i picked up a set of Razer Kraken Pros which i use for gaming and just general use when i don't want to wake up my whole house. Now from what i read about the headphones, a lot of people recommend a good sound card with this headset but I haven't used anything aside from my old Audigy 2 ZS since as far back as i remember.

Call it sentimental value, I bought the card for cheap then scrounged a front panel off a dead computer while i was a tech but if the sound quality or performance increase to my PC isn't that significant then id much rather use my Audigy 2 ZS.

I look forward to hearing your opinions smile.gif
