Hey guys I just wanted to recommend and just wanted to confirm that if you plan on using the Sound Blaster E5 on the PS4 or Xbox One, you must set your Audio Settings to LPCM or Xbox one via (Stereo Uncompressed). I even spoke to a creative customer service representative for the E5. I even have the Chat Log                     So you can use the Sound Blaster E5 via Optical / and Set your Audio Settings Through LPCM on the PS4 . It sounds awesome with the...
All good dude, I got to tryout the E5 Today and used it with the PS4's LPCM and got to hear exactly what I was expecting. The SBX works great with the PS4 and is a much better alternative than the Astro Mixamp. I was even able to Customize the surround sound via SBX Pro Software. So right now I'm currently enjoying the E5.
All good dude .I was right ,I found confirmation right here. I will be ordering an E5 or an X7 to use for PS4 LPCM, and get the virtual surround. :)  http://www.adsforwebsite.org/t/593050/the-nameless-guide-to-pc-gaming-audio-with-binaural-headphone-surround-sound/3285
if anyone that has a Sound Blaster E5 can they please hook it up to your Blasters Optical in and via optical out of the PS4 and set your PS4 sound settings to LPCM. Make sure SBX is enabled on the E5. Let me know how good it sounds. Thanks
The Mixamp is not taking 8 channels , the Dolby Bitstream is telling the mixamp Left and Right where to put positional ques, to get 7.1. YOU CAN ONLY get TRUE 7.1 VIA HDMI to HDMI Receiver to TV then hook up your 7.1 speaker system. Optical out cannot do 8 "DISCRETE" Channels  , Only 2 channels. You just said what i said lol, Dolby Pro Logic IIx or Pro Logic II upmixes "left and right Stereo" Into simulated Surround Sound. The PS4 accepts bitstream and LPCM ,DTS. The SBX...
 Dude,the Astro Mixamp Pro 2013 uses Dolby Pro Logic IIx, upgrades Dolby 5.1 to 7.1 simulated surround sound. It also turns stereo into simulated surround sound. go to the link below and look at the back side of the astro mixamp pro 2013 and you will see Dolby Pro Logic IIx http://www.kitguru.net/peripherals/headphones/ken-bevis/astro-a40-and-mixamp-review/4/  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dolby_Pro_Logic  Also I know the PS4 doesn't apply virtual surround it just allows...
The Astro Mixamp is Dolby Certified. Has a decoder, that can be turned on or off for the 5.1  Astro Mixamp = Dolby Decoder on or off which allows virtual simulated 5.1 or 7.1. Some Movies and games use stereo yes, but the astro mixamp can still simulate surround with the decoder on.The SBX takes stereo and simulates it into surround just like the astro mixamp.
If you use the optical out of your system like the PS4 it doesn't matter if it's Dolby Bitstream, DTS, or using the Sound Blaster SBX Pro surround sound through LPCM they will all  be SIMULATED surround sound because the optical out can only do left and right channel. If you want True 7.1 or 5.1 surround you must use HDMI. Here is a take : if you have a Astro Mixamp, go into the PS4 sound settings and change it to LPCM. The Astro Mixamp because it's Dolby Pro Logic IIx it...
Changing the sound settings in the PS4 to LPCM will make it output at 2 channels (Stereo Mode) then it should simulate (SBX )the surround sound just like Dolby Headphone. Optical can only produce left and right sound.  The E5 can't decode bit stream , but it can simulate surround because of the SBX feature. As long as you change the sound settings in the PS4 to LPCM. The SBX feature and Dolby Headphone are both Simulated surround.  EDIT: The SBX Pro Software for the PC...
