I have an Asus K8V-SE Deluxe motherboard with an onboard soundMAX device that supports 5.1 and 7.1 surround.
It seemed at first that the sound was only coming out of the front right speaker. When I ran a test (the one where it plays a virtual sound circling the user), the center speaker (front) played the sound for the rear center, and the front right speaker played the sound for both front center and front right. It was also much louder than any of the other peripheral speakers, as well as scratchy and slightly distorted. I tried switching to stereo sound, and ended up getting sound of even volume from each speaker, but with an odd, very noticeable echo effect.
I installed the latest drivers for the device, but they didn't fix anything. Any sugestions?
