    While this poll topic may seem off-topic I assure you my intentions are very Infiltration related.

    1) Do you have an EAX-enabled sound card? (If so, which one?)

    2) Do you have a quadraphonic (4 speakers, 1 subwoofer) or surround (5.1) speaker system for your computer? (... and does your sound card support surround)?

    I'd use the actual poll system but I'm hoping for slightly more detailed answers.

    Nope. I have permenant hearing damage from real guns and factory work so a "killer" sound system isn't one of my priorities.

    El cheapo-Creative Ensoniq AudioPCI with imitation A3D.
    Even cheaper RadioShack stereo headphones so I can crank the volume to an acceptable level for me and still not wake the neighbors.

    not even sure what my card is, but i DO know it is a piece of crap. Ask people who play with me online. Some days i will be yelling about my "sound fuzzing out", which is an extremly annoying crackle followed by total silence for 20-30 seconds. Gets me killed all the time.

    I have a sb Live! player + the CL DDT2500

    And I have a question:
    what does the surround option do? I currently play in the 4 spk mode off my speakerset and was wondering if I could use a 5.1 dolby digital option...

    The surround sound option causes the Galaxy audio subsystem to output Dolby AC-3 encoded (surround sound) sound data. It does give you surround sound but it sounds like ****. UT's 3D audio option doesn't really do a whole lot and doesn't produce surround sound like it should.

    SB16 baby!!!

    I've got myself a classic Sound Blaster 16. Man I love this baby! It may not have all the bells and whistles newer cards may have, but I have had this card for years and it has always worked... not a single problem at all. It has the basicas as well as Full Duplex so that's really all I need. A very solid card indeed. With all the problems I've heard recently about Sound Blaster Live! cards having problems in some games I have been hesitant about upgrading. Maybe I'll go for a Hercules Game Theater XP sometime... but for now I'm still not convinced I want something newer. SB16 baby!!!
