The problem with SPDIF output not working in win2k is a problem with the OS, not the sound cards. It MAY be fixed with SP2

I don't think it was ever manufactured, Aureal went tits-up after it was announced but before production started http://discussions.hardwarecentral.com/frown.gif

Yes sp-2 will prob be out in a month or two.

The Philips Acoustic Edge looks like a good one, time to scrap this mx400 with ****house driver support for win2k. Perhaps i'll put my sb16 with waveblaster daughterboard back in

None, as the sb crap! range are seemingly worse for...

There have been no new drivers for the mx400 for win2k since frigging middle of '99 I think. That's not to say that I will buy some sb pos either. I just hope another company produces a decent...

Ah, I have the same staticky prob out of the right channel, mostly when I'm using winamp. I'm running win2k, and when i emailed s3 about new drivers they said no chance.

With decent sub-bass in a stereo you can feel the bass with your whole body, of course it'll cost a lot more than $50 http://discussions.hardwarecentral.com/frown.gif

the 5.1 has six analog channel outputs. This is useful for you if you have a six channel pre-amp without dolby digital, otherwise you can use the digital output.
