As stated in the reviews if you want to use analog then you use your SOUNDCARDs chipset (so no CM software or pod) to change the volume and any enhancements.
I was referring to the inability to adjust the volume when using 5.1 analog. This was NOT clarified in any promotional info available. I called CM support over this and the tech rep was not aware of that concern. He said he owned a set,but used the USB and didn't find out. His name is Marvin and he was just as surprised as I was to find no volume control. He also said they would change thier web site to indicate that information. I'm fully aware that you can't use USB software with analog modes. My concern was the lack of a volume control for the analog connection method. You can set the volume from you sound card or windows,but once you're in game,there is no way. Apparently,CM has a module or something in the works.
