SPDIF Mobo Reciever?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I've got a new set of headphones, Senn's HD201's.

I was thinking how to connect my sound from my mobo to my receiver, then I thought of SPDIF.

Now, my head phones and on board sound "realtek" are High Definition sounds and also my board has output SPDIF.

My receiver on the other hand is not HD and also has SPDIF IN.

Would it be worth it to sacrifice the HD sounds to have sounds go from my mobo to receiver then to my headphones?

I do have a photo of the receiver, don't mind the dust;), 8 years old I believe..

What are your thoughts?

I'd use the spdif out to the receiver, then connect the headphones to that. The "hd audio" is nothing special, and you won't lose anything significant.

Alright cool.

I did just that. It works but for some reason when I use Dolby Digital Live under Default Format under realtek's control panel, gaming sounds like I am in a can and in a concert, sounds are bad. Environment is set to None. I held my receivers power button 5 seconds to reset everything to factory defaults still the same. Any thoughts on this?

Receiver was set on a certain mode, I changed it to A.F.D.

Thanks for your help.
