hi guys was wondering if you could clear this situation up for me: im going to be importing some canton movie mx 60 surround speakers from germany. i will also be making anew pc and was wondering how to go about connecting my new x-fi soundcard up to the speakers. im not too sure if an amp/reciever is the right way to go about it. what i wanna know is: 1. the sound card will do the surround processing so if i connect it to an amp will the surround be processed twice? 2. since the x-fi card is a very good sound card, which will be better at surround sound processing? the sound card or the reciever? 3. if the sound card gives better sound, is there any other way i can connect my soundcard to my speakers? 4.lastly are there any of you out there who have a x-fi card? and what do you think of it compared with your surround hardware? thanks for your help!
