5.1 sound problems with Asus Strix Soar 7.1 Gaming sound card.

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Took the plunge and bought the Asus Strix Soar 7.1 Gaming Soundcard.

After installing the card, I immediately went onto the Asus website and downloaded the latest drivers from the site.

I configured my setup as 5.1 both in Windows 10 & the software. To my dismay, stereo sources doesn't get upmix to 5.1 at all, the sound only plays in two speakers out of the 5...

I have to manually turn on the upmix in the software which actually makes the sound a lot worse. Both my previous X-fi extreme music and onboard sound did a much better upmixing job than this. Did anyone else here experienced this problem?


For reference my speakers is the Logitech Z-5500.

I am sure there's a setting in their that'll fix things.
However as a rule if its sound cards its better be Sound Blaster. They've been at it since the days of DOS.
Also u can set the Pro Logic setting in the Z5500. That will upmix to 4.1 right?

How do you have the Strix Soar connected to the Z5500?
optical connection or 3 analog 3.5mm stereo plugs?
