    Well yes, you physically can't have 5.1 surround sound with only 2 speakers. You need 6.

    And what about headphones about 100 bucks for movies/gaming (occasionaly music) ?? I have Creative headset Fatality, which 6yrs ago cost me 30 bucks.... after long research I have selected :

    Sennheiser GSP 300
    AT ATH-AVC500
    AT ATH-M30X
    AT ATH-M20X

    I dont need mic on them, but i read about GSP 300 that they are quite good for everything, with good sound and isolation... comfortable
    I think AT is better in soud ... but for my usage, which to pick ? I want some "entry" level. Thx

    PC360s(or other variants like it) are better than GSP 300.

    Similar price for PC360 usually.

    Otherwise you could get a 558/559 plus a mod mic.

    I see those go on sale for around 60$ sometimes.

    So you think Senn is better than AT for my use ? Your tips are too much money for me here in Czech rep. (160-180 bucks) and PCs 360 I can not buy here anymore :/

    AT M20x/30x/AVC500 are here for 55/80/115 bucks... GSPs 300 for 90 bucks

    Hello, back again :) I own SB omni surround 5.1 now... My question is, how to set it up properly ?
    I use stereo 2.0 speakers and AT ATH-AVC500 headphones... so for surround effect in games (and movies)
    do I need to set my audio in Windows to 5.1 or leave it to stereo and simulate it by SBX in SB application ?
    Or do you recommend some better setup ?
    thx again
