Seems like I'll be holding on to my Audigy 2 ZS Pro for a little longer

we can conclude that it is not possible to connect analog surround speakers directly to the sound card; f
I have this speaker set: which still does all it needs to excellently;

Well, I am doing most of the listening on my headphones
Comment from jmke @ 2010/12/03
see the volume controler, there's a headphone jack at the front, comes in very handy when it's dark outside and it needs to be quiet in the house
but during day I can wreck havoc with 5.1 surround and big base

Would have liked to do that too, but in my apartment you can hear very well from one room to another, even at low sound levels
