Default 5.1 Surround Sound on Vista 64

Has anyone got a sound card fully working with 5.1 spearkers yet? I got a
Audigy SE which during tests gives me lovely 5.1 - but because the nice
developers at M$ removed 3DDirectSound nothing else can use them. So I'm
looking for a new board that offers EAX 3 and surround sound 5.1 speaker
system

Default 5.1 Surround Sound on Vista 64

Dyawlak,

It looks as though OpenAL will enable hardware acceleration in Vista,
including 5.1 sound, and Creative is working on it. For a more complete
picture, see the following site:

http://www.creative.com/press/releas....asp?pid=12385

So, it seems that you should be able to get what you want right now with the
proper OpenAL drivers, but perhaps only on a limited basis. I don't pretend
to understand all the ramifications involved in this issue.
