Sound Card: 5.1 / 7.1 sound card. (First try to use existing 5.1 / 7.1 sound card; many PC has onboard 5.1 sound card, or use existing external USB or internal add-on sound card. If this is not possible, then we recommend to buy Creative® Sound Blaster Omni 5.1).
Speaker Requirements :
Two of 2.0 speakers (and an optional active subwoofer), or,
One of 2.0 speaker and one of 2.1 speaker, or,
One of 5.1 speaker with component analog input (Recommended Logitech® Z607 Surround Sound Speaker) [*1], or,
One of 5.1 surround sound system with SPDIF input (require sound card supports DTS® Connect or Dolby® Digital Live which produces multi-channel audio signal to its SPDIF output instead of its component analog output. Sound card recommendations are Creative® Sound Blaster Z or Creative® Sound Blaster Omni 5.1) [*1].
To establish preliminary test and experience Endpoint Mixing® sound, you may use two of existing asymmetric 2.0 speakers. Ideally they are having similar size, tone, and passthrough delay, but never mind if not. And some people find good combinations and end up using them. On the other hand, you may use a stereo speaker as back speaker while wearing earbuds as front speaker, this will gives you some gain in sound quality but some mid-range frequency degrade, yet still good 3D immersion; but this should only be limited as test generally speaking.
Smartphone, MacOS, Linux and headphone are not supported at this stage. [*1] - 5.1 speaker is used to render Endpoint Mixing 2.2.1 sound reproduction method, not 5.1 surround sound. Click Speaker Positioning ↗ page for more information.
