Computers that support 7.1 - Speakers

There are a number of computers now that have Intel HD Audio built in.

 

They support Dolby 7.1

 

What I cannot find are computer speakers that are more than 2.1

 

I have not received my computer yet, but I cannot seem to find info on how the connections work or what you need. 

 

I have found a bracket for mounting rear speakers to my chair.

Re: Computers that support 7.1 - Speakers

MB output:  Speaker Inputs 7,1

  • MB Lime to Front audio input
  • Light Blue to Side input
  • Orange to Center/Subwoofer
  • Black to rear input

 

i have not seen 7.1 desktop speakers sence Creative labs discontinued them years ago. probaby would need to use a home theater setup.  or use 5.1 there are tons of those

Re: Computers that support 7.1 - Speakers

7.1 for computer speakers does not make a lot of sense anyway.

 

Uilizing proper set up for the speakers they would be set up directly behind your chair and unless you had a cockpit or some such it would quickly get cumbersom.

 

Logitec does have a number of 5.1 set ups

 

I have beeen exploring options for a swing arm for the rears but it really is not working out to be praticle. 

 

I will probalby just end up getting a good 2.1 system
