Hi All,

 

Was wondering which PC speakers or Soundbars are you all using since 2.7, there is an option for 5.1 sound. Which would you recommend ?

 

Thank you

If you want Peace, be prepared to fight for it ! :pilotfly:

Is surround sound that important? It's not a shooter where perception of enemy activity is vital to your movement. I'm flying with one of those cheap bluetooth speakers, sometimes with a headset. Can't tell the difference honestly.

I use a sound bar for general PC gaming and day to day use, but in DCS (and other VR games). I put on a headset that's supposedly capable of surround sound (which seems to work OK).

 

The main reason I use the sound bar is that I had a crappy Logitech 5.1 surround setup from like 15 years ago, but didn't have a physical place to put the rear speakers. The sound bar wasn't really being put to good use on the television in the living room, but sounded a million times better than the Logitech speakers.

 

My only issue is that I'm using an S/PDIF connector and it's my understanding they're obsolete, but I don't get the same high-quality audio options with HDMI. Connecting the sound bar with HDMI also had a tenancy to "time out" and turn the sound bar off if I don't play audio for a long time, which is annoying.
