Thread: Any "Out of the Box" surround-sound cards?

  1. #1

    Default Any "Out of the Box" surround-sound cards?

    I looked at the HCL, and unless I just missed it, I didn't see any that were surround sound "Out of the Box." I did notice the Audigy SE appeared to have a tested way of configuring it, but I didn't see any follow ups on this.

    In case there's specific issues, it's for 64Bit 'SUSE with 32compat module loaded.

    Thanks!

    Which one(s)/[all?] specifically worked for you?

    I ask because there's plenty available from 4ch to 8ch on a cursory glance on eBay.

    It's interesting almost all the ones I saw on eBay had an old school joystick port. Kill two birds since my usb joystick refuses to config properly. (But does give output on /dev/js0.)

    I have an ASUS Xonar D2. Fully supported, great sound quality.

    That's a bit out of my price range. (Should've mentioned that >$100USD.)

    But wow, that's a seriously cool looking sound card.
