I know the D2X was a revolutionary card back in the days for audio cards but is it still as good as the STX? or is the STX better.

Thus why I brought up the point to check speaker hookups for compatibility. That was all, to help prevent a purchase that may not work if the OP only has analog input for surround speakers.Originally Posted by Moltar;13022763
However, this still is not true surround as it is still synthesized and you must hook the output up to the digital out on the card.
