Hi

I can't decide what road I should go download to choose a speaker system for my Creative X-Fi Titanium Fatal1ty Professional Series it has a Optical output it also has ports for computer 5.1+ speaker system. So my question is should I get a onkyo tx-sr501 then run optical out from x-fi into optical in of onkyo tx-sr501, but I hear some reports about not getting full 5.1+ surround with Optical usually just only two speakers working.

Or should I choose to get a logitech or creative analog speaker system but really I want digital sound but all the pc speaker system I find are usually only analog.

So any help is great

Thanks

Me,... I'd go the Onkyo route with some good bookshelf speakers. Some of the computer 5.1 systems are ok but they really don't compare to a receiver and good bookshelf's.

First of all ... Welcome to the froum :wave:

I also agree to go with Onkyo and bookshelf speakers, if you get only two speakers to play when using a 5.1 source, probably it will have to do with the set up :huh:
