Extended stereo mode is what the sound blaster z makes it sound like. I use multi-channel input on my receiver so most of those processes don't work in 6-channel mode, luckily my sound card does the job perfectly. I use Extended mode with my TV's sound system when I listen to music, Sounds great and gives a good immersion feeling. Just gotta love those Polk speakers.

Like I said I have no idea if those Asus Cards do the same thing or mix stereo into 5.1 that doesn't sound as if your were playing music with DTS neo:music or Prologic II:Music mode.




In a computer setup you really don't need anything more then 4.1 because of the space, though if you were able to fit in a center speaker good for you.
