    Default Suggest a sound card for home theatre

    Can anyone suggest a good sound card for a panasonic 5:1 surround sound system home theatre, its model name is sc-dk20
    We've usin the surround sound system with our bluray player(spdf out or some kind of mod i really don't know) As our bluray player hasn't surround sound system
    I've planned for a titanium hd, how it would be able to handle it?
    Main purpose would be adding some realistic effect on movies and also enable the surround sound system when watching movies from external hdd
    tv model is samsung ua46d7000, the asian version of un46d7000

    Xonars are the best for music and creative for gaming, try to find the Asus Xonar Essence STX one its a great sound card it has built in headphone amp, which will help you to drive moderately high end headphones like k701/2, HD 650 etc.

    BTW are you sure that your player dont support 5:1 ? Any modern standalone DVD Player supports 5.1 let alone bluray players? and even if you buy a sound card, then you'll be using your computer to play videos, right? So you wont be able to use your bluray player, so whats the point of buying the sound card? i mean you can use your built in sound card to drive those 5.1 speakers. Unless you want better sound quality i don't see any good reason to buy them.

    found THIS !!! I'm not even sure if you'll get any surround sound using discrete sound cards.

    Creative X-Fi titanium. The other options such as Xonar and stuff are quite expensive, but if you have the buck get a Xonar Essence D2 or D2X i.e. if you can find one.

    Not all of them are expensive. Xonar DX/D1/DS are quite cheap. Some are as cheap as i.e $30, but the problem is they are really hard to find in BD.

    Hey i don't say that it doesn't support surround sound system, it has ports for it. But we have to mod the home theatre system to connect it. U know conventional home theatre sound system are integrated with the dvd player.

    Ami tomar case ta ekdom ee bujhlam na. Ki korte chaccho? Ki hocche na? Aro detailed and less jumbled explanation dao. Mske a well constructed post. Onno der post pore ami aro haray gesi.

    Yours is not a dedicated 5-channel system. Since it 's a Hi-Fi System, i 'm quite sure it works as stereo only when hooked up from an external source. You can put out audio thru all the speakers but the sound will still be stereo upmixed through all the channels. More like CMSS 3D or Dolby Pro-Logic.

    Whether you connect a Blue-Ray Player or Titanium to it, the receiver unit receives only stereo analogue inputs right? So you are stuck with stereo sound with this set when connecting any external source. Turn on Dolby-Prologic decoder from it to upmix it thru all the channels.

    The only way you might get dedicated 5.1 channel sound from this set is when playing DVDs from the built-in DVD player in the receiver unit. That way you 'll be utilizing the built-in Dolby digital decoder and hence the dedicated multi-channel sound. But since it has no deicated input jacks for Centre/LFE/Rear/optical input, you can 't receive multi-channel sound on it and play it back thru respective channels.

    earlier you said something about S/PDIF , please give us more info. But as far as i can guess from here you need a coaxial cable with RCA connectors or a fiber optic cable with TOSLINK connectors to connect your home theatre to the bluray player. Maybe only Hemlock bro can help you, he has huuuugge knowledge about these stuff.

    ^. the home theater model he provided, search it. it is too old to connect latest hardware. better buy a new home theater system.

    Xonar Essence STX is a head phone amp for stereophiles. it is not for surround sound systems.

    it works great on both stereo and surround sound systems, the only differences from creative one's are it rather depends on software for xfi or any other sounds effects.

    No, it doesn 't. The STX was always meant to be a stereo sound card for driving headphones. It doen 't have any analogue 5.1/7.1 output. However it does throw a surround sound digital signal but you 'll need a receiver in order to decode it, and that route is expensive. The ST on the other hand can pair with a daughter board in order to send multi-channel signals thru repective analogue ports.

    And i didn 't understand what you meant by the last part of the sentence. Care to explain?

    Whether you buy a Titanium or a Xonar or use on-board audio, you can 't get dedicated 5.1 out of this thing, sorry. You just have to hook it up thru the available auxiliary input and turn on Dolby-Prologic on the receiver to get a stereo sound upmixed thru all the channels. That 's abt it.

    If you want to get a sound card for better sound quality than on-board, spend at least 7k and get a Titanium or don 't get a dedicated sound card at all.

    Well, this is not my first hand knowledge so i might be wrong. my cousin owns a STX, i went to his house to check out the card he told me that the card doesnt support hardware decoding for virtual speaker positioning or any other special sound effects and get this job done by cpu.

    ---------- Post added at 17:54 ---------- Previous post was at 17:47 ----------

    yeah do whatever hemlock bro said but i always used to think the xonar cards are better for music.
