What exactly makes 5.1 better than existing 4-channel sound cards? The most significant change is the addition of a centre channel. With the centre channel, the front soundstage is expanded. Sounds from movies make use of the centre channel to localize dialogue and on-screen sound effects, while using the other speakers for ambience, music and surround effects. This could translate very well when used for games that support 3D sound, and playback of Dolby Digital encoded material on the PC!!
