Hi,

I have Altec Lansing ACS495 speakers. I am told it's some sort of surround speakers, called "Prologic Surround".

The speakers are connected with one 3.5mm green jack connector to my Realtek HD Audio, and "Prologic Surround" mode is enabled on the speakers.

But I dont know if I should set it to 5.1 speakers, or just as stereo in Realtek HD Audio Manager.. Any advices?
 
You should set the audio manager to stereo. Dolby Prologic folds 5.1 channels into a stereo signal and your speaker will separate the channels. Not as good as discrete digital surround but that is what you speakers are designed for since it only has a 2 channel analog input.

So, the Prologic surround will sound more nice if I set it to Stereo in Realtek HD Audio Manager? Should I enable "Virtual Surround" ?
