    Connecting the speakers to the audio station is handy for switching from headset to speakers, however it is intended for surround speakers only. There's no with no downmix functionality for stereo speakers. This means you won't be able to hear any other channels if you connect to stereo speakers.

    I'm working with the audio team for the new firmware, and I have addressed this. In the meantime, a beta has been released and we appreciate any feedback.

    Downmix functionality will be added in the next firmware. I will keep everyone up-to-date. In the meantime, if you have stereo speakers, please connect them to another audio device.

    Until the possibility of downmixes is implemented, are there any problems if I connect the speakers directly to the motherboard and change the source into Windows 10?

    You can connect speakers to the motherboard (probably the green 3.5mm jack) and switch the output whenever you like.

    Hey, any updates on real stereo support? I got my Centurion a couple of days ago and installed Firmware 1.06. I suppose the downmixing is working since I can hear everything through the speakers? I set "front" to max, however the speakers are still kind of quite and no real bass..
    This is the only major disappointment for me with the device, I think ASUS should have stated "NO STEREO SPEAKERS SUPPORT" in big red text when advertising the product. I was looking for something to replace my dated Roccat Kave XTD 5.1 Digital, and since I have quite powerful stereo speakers mounted on the wall I loved the functionality to switch between headset and speakers with a single button press. The Kave is also a true surround headset; much like the Centurion it has a desk unit with 4 speaker ports, however it also works with stereo speakers providing excellent sound and bass, really miss that with the Centurion

    You can try the custom firmware to have support for stereo speakers.
