I was choosing between the xonar phoebus & D2X,but I ended up choosing D2X because Xonar phoebus has drivers issues with windows 8 which I'm using right now.It was may 2013 when I bought my D2X

Thanks for your friendly reccomendation,but I would prefer my D2X over Phoebus as I don't like the phoebus's toy like styling like creative sbz & it does not include burr brown either.

No problem Biff. That D2X is a very decent card.

So I bought 2 Asus Xonars DGX and neither would work or fit properly on my motherboard and in my case so I said screw it and picked one of these up. My headphones sound great now but my speakers will not work at all. I have a logitech 5.1 system but it is the kind with just the Black, Green and Orange conectors. It will only do steroe sound with the U7 and does not do 5.1 surrond.

Anyone have any ideas?

Did you right click the speaker icon for 5.1 settings? The black,green and orange connections are for 5.1 analog speakers or 5.1 headphones. It should work OK.

Yes I did and when I then hit the test button the front left makes no sound the center does the front right, the rear right comes out of the right speaker sand then the bass makes noise but the front left and rear's do nothing.

Hmmm. Maybe reinstall the drivers? Don't enable the Dolby HTV4 and see what happens then.
