  1. What technology does Astro A50 use to downmix 5.1 DD sound to 2.0 surround sound?

    At the moment there are several technologies that emulate 5.1/7.1 sound - Dolby Headphone, CMSS-3D, Razer, SBX Pro, and a few others I think. I know that they are not the same as 5.1 Dolby Digital...

    Actually, I figured it out and it does work perfectly fine and provides me positional audio - I tested it! LAV Audio Decoder decodes DTS sound into 6 channel PCM, and then my soundcard encodes that...

    Right from horse's mouth (DDL description from Creative) - "DDL converts 5.1 audio signal into a digital bitstream in real-time for transport and playback through a DD-equipped HT system or digital...
  7. Will my system convert DTS Audio to DD5.1 Audio properly?

    My soundcard - Creative X-Fi Titanium PCIe supports both - Dolby Digital Live (DDL) encoding and DTS encoding. However, my Astro A50 wireless headset specifically supports only Dolby Digital (DD)...

    My set works fine... - no issues at all except I do not know if they support full dynamic range or only limited range. It was easy to install - pretty much Plug & Play.

    And what does it have to do with 5.1??? You seem like you have NO idea what I am talking about. DDL 5.1 or DD 5.1 are preserved whether I select full range or limited range. Read more on here -...
  10. Do Astro A50s have advantage over professional headphones such as Sennheiser series?

    Do Astro A50s support full range?

    When adjusting sound settings in Windows 7 I can choose to enable FULL DYNAMIC RANGE or not. Do Astro A50s support full dynamic range?
  13. Can Astro A50 Amp be used with Sennheiser HD 650?

    I am very confused with all these sound technologies. I have Creative X-Fi Titanium PCIe that supports Dolby Digital Live 5.1 encoding without CMSS 3D. I connected my Astro A50 to my card and all is...

    So I just checked a different set of optical speakers and headphones and they work fine when SPDIF Out is selected. Only Astro A50s do not work with SPDIF Out (using same checked optical cable). I...
