Boy has this been a long time ago! Down cleaning the work room with the
old 2002 Dell P4 with RAMBUS memory.

Have 2 sets of cheap speakers hooked into the sound card for a "full
rich experience" (LOL!!!) when listening to the jukebox.

Anyway, only one set comes on. When I switch plugs the other works, but
not together anymore.

Has probably been a year since this box was last lit up. Anything quick
I'm missing. The only software for sound is the stock Win XP settings.
No Creative software.

Course I need to get cleaning and forget about this or ain't going to
get anything done; AGAIN!!

thanks

Use contact cleaner over WD40, especially with the card. 000 steel
wool if cleaning plugs but clean up any magnetized residuals. Keep
within specs and don't exceed the chip's design depths, bit or sample
rates. Know your after-market drivers if not using the factory
provisions. I'm running ASUS soundboards these days, red-laser
modulated carrier signal straight and dry into a processing preamp,
and analog from there into the main amp for 4-ohm loads. The backload
or post-processing, bi-amping, I run directly via the soundboard
OPAMPs output for a four-channel configuration into a single mixer
loop, with another loop for confidence testing. The 8-ohm load there
is weighted for predominately mids on the bi-amp aspect, even though
both call themselves studio-reference grade, the 4-ohm setup is the
one more apt to be recognized by sound engineers in a working mix
down. Last time I used Creative Labs was enough to send me over to
Turtle Beach. Long time ago, but ASUS is king of the hill now,
anyway, unless you're into latencies, MACs, and stretch pink Cadillacs.
