If you have 4.1 then you'd probably wanna set it to Quadraphonic, sometimes if you set it to surround and you don't have the center channel you'll miss sound that is being rendered on that channel. Surround usually consists of 5.1
but just try both and see if you can tell a difference, especially in DVD's or such
oh I didn't say it wouldn't work, but Yeah but surround on a 4.1 wouldn't sound quite right unless you had one of your speakers right in front of you to render a center channel...or else it wouldn't really be full surround but you'll still get all the front and rear noises..
go buy a extra speaker heheh
btw dreamliner see my responses to a few of your posts, answered a sec ago
I did a lot of research into what surround speakers to get, and the Z-560s are far and away the best bang-for-your-buck. http://www.2buystore.com has them for $138 FREE SHIPPING. I ordered on Friday, and got them yesterday. You cannout find a better price than that.
Anyway guys, how about I rephrase my question this way: What is the difference between XP's Quadraphonic and Surround speaker setting?
Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
