And you never told me what Xaudio2 is.
Also, does anybody know any good games off the top of their head that support 3d audio?

Also Xaudio2 is the poor replacement for the Direct sound hal, It would had been better if MS just simply pushed Devs into using just OpenAL instead of giving us Xaudio2.I can't stand Xaudio2 api as it don't sound right where your using stereo or using surround sound, the sound usually be off or the bass is messed up.
Also The unreal engine 3 games tend to have a option in their engine.ini to change the game from using Xaudio2 to OpenAl, as it be on Xaudio2 by default. its a simple line change. AudioDeviceClass=Xaudio2.ALXaudio2Device to AudioDeviceClass=ALAudio.ALAudioDevice and the game will switch to using Openal But only if both of those are listed in the engine.ini, UE using games that has those options are Borderlands2, UT4,Painkiller Hell and damnation,Rise of the triad remake also Mass effect 2/3 the last time I checked and a lot of Unreal engine 3 games. Some UE3 games doesn't have that command line to do it, I don't remember which ones dont. I recall that battlefield 3 is OpenAL besides Battlefield 2. Doom 3 is OpenA as wellL, so is Quake 3/4,killing floor,UT2k4, off the top of my head and from the games I have installed.
