Hello. Am I correct in connecting my u-DAC8 as follows for a 5.1 system:

Output 1 -- left front
Output 2 -- right front
Output 3 -- center
Output 4 -- subwoofer
Output 5 -- left surround
Output 6 -- right surround
Outputs 7/8 -- unused

This seems to correspond to the numbering system for MacOX in the manual -- but the manual doesn't show the similar layout for a Windows arrangement.

Thanks. JCR

@ JCR,

Indeed it seems to be the correct routing. here is a reference from Microsoft on that topic.

Unlike Mac, I don't believe that you can remap audio channels under Windows. Might be wrong.. :-)

Thanks for the reply. Your diagrams above say the LFE is Ch3, not Ch4. I am trying to reconcile that against my perceived correct mapping.

The context of my inquiry is that I have the u-DAC8 outputs running to the 7.1 analog MCH inputs on my Marantz AV-7702. SW1 sounds fine. SW2, however, sounds as though it is getting a full range signal sent to it. It sounds terrible. I did run a MCH audio channel identification file and it correctly identified the LF, C, RF, LS and RS, so that makes me think that the routing I described in the first post is correct. So, just reconfirming in light of the diagrams. Thanks. JCR

@ jrobbins50,

Please note that these diagrams are straight out from Microsoft, so not exactly sure why it would be toggled but it's not on our side I think.. The labeling start from CH0 hence the offset. So correct me if I'm wrong but I think that we aggree with that setup.

Are you using another software in between? Maybe the switch is done there? We haven't seen this before.. :-(

ROUTING as per Microsoft routing to match diagrams.
ch0 -- left front
ch1 -- right front
ch2 -- center
ch3 -- subwoofer
ch4 -- left surround
ch5 -- right surround
ch 6/7 -- unused
