View Full Version : 5.1 7.1 surround sound G74Sx

I've been going through the forums reading the threads about the G74SX audio card, and surround sound support. Up until now I was under the impression this computer supports higher audio surround sound. After recently going to PAX East, I've decided it's time for a new headset. I can spend however much I need to honestly. I was hoping for high quality( TIamat 7.1 perhaps), but if the computer only is capable of 2.1 stereo , well yeah.

I need some suggestions and I guess a clearer answer as to whether I can use a 5.1 or 7.1 headset. From the looks of things the 7.1 headsets are all virtual. I do sometimes plug my laptop into the tv/ receiver via hdmi, but I find the video quality well its just friggen hard to see anything, screen seems so tiny on the TV. I'd like to find something with a braided wire, and maybe a good warrenty, also going to buy a headset stand.
