Reviews
Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 4 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Excellent card It's an excellent card for the budding gamer to buy as an intro to higher quality gaming. However this is my second card, the first blew out (seemingly without cause) after 5 weeks. Making this card somewhat of a dissapointment. That being said, the difference in sound from before and after is incredible and very, very noticable. 31 March 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Red Beast After years of using onboard sound thought id step up and see what a proper souncard could do in comparison. Wow....didnt think id notice the difference....how wrong I was. Really useful being able to plug headphones into the desk extender module and easily switch between speakers and headphones in the software. And it glows awesome red in my case..... 02 April 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Sound card Sound quality is outstanding much better than onboard sound although on board sound is becoming even better. Highly recommend this card. No negatives as of yet 05 September 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Upgrade form onboard sound Decided to go the dedicated card route and chose the zx from this range for the audio control module. Works flawlessly and the software is very good with a lot of sound customiseable options 07 December 2013

Answer: 
Hello,

This does have support for 5.1 optical but you would need to change some of the settings in your audio profile in the software that comes with the sound card (Sound Studio Pro) in order to enable multi-channel.

I use a Sub Zero USB Condenser microphone to capture audio when I make videos through my Xbox One. Looking at building a gaming PC and I want a decent audio card because I want to play competitive matches etc but want a card that I can use a USB microphone through.
