So, i have done my share of google search but i still have some questions about surround sound.
-From what i understand, to get virtual surround, i need to get a 5.1 or 7.1 signal to my sound card. And to do that, the game must support such an output, and windows needs to be set on either 5.1 or 7.1 for it to work. so here are my questions.
- If my sound card (i have a sound blaster z) doesn't support 7.1 output, does it mean that it can't create virtual surround from a 7.1 signal ? only from a 5.1 one?
- is 7.1 virtual surround superior to 5.1 ? I know more games are limited to 7.1 than to 5.1
Also, i wanted to know if you could recommend a pair of headphone similar in term of comfit (large ears ) to my HD598, but closed.(my girlfriend has trouble studying when i game of listen to music in the same room)
Thank you !
