Realistic Sound?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
What connections should I use to get the most realistic and accurate sound positioning when I connect my PC to the receiver?

My Auzentech or the 5850? I know I'll get the best audio from the 5850 as it is completely uncompressed audio. But for gaming purposes, would audio processing through DTS on the videocard be a better option? I notice some games, such as COH, does not allow 5.1 to work correctly when it is connected to the 5850. I can't remember if it worked properly through the video card.

I would feed DTS or Dolby live out the Digital out of your Forte into the digital in on your Receiver.

It depends on the hardware you will be using. What speakers and receiver are you using?

Why? I think it actually sounded a little more realistic, but I'm wondering why? Wouldn't full lossless sound better?
