    For a long time I have been using SB Live!, now have X-Fi Music. Listening to music even with headphones, I always liked more 2 speaker configuration, because of more separated left and right channel. Anyone using the same?

    Many audiophiles swear to 2ch audio. So you're not alone.

    When music is encoded in stereo (2 channel), everything else is just fake.

    I always use high quality stereo speakers (or head phones).

    Ehhh... I don't know if you understand me. I mean that wven when I use headphones, I prefer Sound Blaster X-Fi Music mode to 2-speakers instead of headphones.

    Yeah, it makes both channels feel like they have a bit wider sound field. I rarely use headphones now anyway so i kinda forgot how it is.

    Hmmhh... That's odd. Sound (position) is totally inaccurate in that case.

    Well, as I said, the sound is more separated that way. It may not be the most realistic.

    depends on the type of headphones you are using.. for me i prefer 2ch over headphones since they make it unnatural.

    Well I use a headset and prefer the 2.1/2 Speaker setting to Headphones, sounds better to me.
