Sound Advice ?

This should be a simple enough answer for you techsperts.

If I buy a 5.1 or 6.1 soundcard, and only use Front Left/Right channels, would it be the same as a plain old stereo (2-channel card)?

If not, would the soundcard be switchable to use only two channels ?

TIA

I have a 5.1 sound card and have the option to use plain ol' stereo. I just use Front left and front right and the center speaker where all the contolr cables go on my cambridge speakers.

It allows you to connect extra speakers. You only get Sound Advice on hear BUT it mite not be Accurate
