If I used this in a PC specifically built to run a digital organ, do the 5 outputs go directly to powered speakers, or do they go into an amp that is 5.1 then out to the speakers?

Asked by: chris2214
The outputs would usually go to an amp or sub-woofer then out to the speakers

Will this product decode a dolby digital and a DTS mkv file?

Asked by: Konnie
This is a sound card so alone will not decode anything, the decoding would be done by the software on the PC, and whether it was supported would then be down to the sound card and the speakers in use.
