PC digital audio

Recommended Posts

I've been playing around with digital audio (through optical) with the built in realtek audio on my motherboard and found that windows doesn't know what the speaker setup is when using digital and so games default to stereo.


Is this standard for all sound cards or do cards from companies like creative have a way round this?


seems to me with this limited experience that PCs are better off using analog because software can better cope with it (like AAC 5.1 stays 5.1 but through digital you need software to convert it to DD or something else)
