amaltom61 Posted July 3, 2013 Share Posted July 3, 2013 (edited) According to the user manual this motherboard have Realtek ALC887 audio codec which supports 7.1 or 8 channel audio. But in the ASUS site and in the manual it says it supports only 5.1 or 6 channel audio I have now a 2.1 system and plans to upgrade to a 5.1 or 7.1. The MB have three 3.5mm at the back (green pink and blue) and 2 at the front(green and pink) I changed the speaker configuration to 5.1 in the Realtek HD audio manager. Now the 3 back panel jacks act as the audio out. When it is set to 7.1 the 3 back panel jacks and the front headset jack (the green one)acts as the audio out. I tested it with plugging my speaker cable to all the jacks. So the motherboard can support 7.1 audio. Then why it says 5.1 channel audio all over place.The ALC887 support S/PIDF digital out, but there is no SPDIF port. In the manual it says SPDIF module is purchased separately but I couldn't find one anywhere There is no additional sound cards or junk like that except the onboard audio on my motherboard.
