  • stereo vs. 5.1

    Most of my songs are stereo, but some are 5.1. But I have to configure the audio device to stereo, so that the receiver can upmix to 5.1. If I left the audio device in 5.1, the receiver would never mix to 5.1 because it's receiving 6 channels, even if 4 of them are silence. So it would be nice if Winamp could configure the audio device to stereo or 5.1 depending on what the song is.

    that sounds like something that should be handled by the soundcard. For example my soundblaster card can automatically upmix stereo to 6 channels for my z-5500. Alternatively you can use a output plugin to handle it instead, for example; matrix mixer will convert stereo to 6 channel
    Current Setup: Windows 10 Pro, Sound Blaster Z, Logitech Z-5500, Winamp v5.666.3516
