I'm currently using onboard sound (Asus P5E3 Premium) and I'm not too thrilled with the sound quality. 5.1/7.1 surround can only be acheived with analog output to the receiver, only 2ch stereo is supported through the coax or optical output. Is there a sound card out there that outputs 7.1 channels through an optical or coax output? I've been searching for some time now and can't find a definitive answer.....it looks like the Auzuntech X-Fi Prelude, and possibly the Asus Xonar D2 and D2x are capable of doing this.
Thanks for the help
