i just built an extention on my house i needed more zones than my motherboard could hold.
i did alot of testing and i went with SIIG usb soundwave 7.1 simulated surround.
granted i only needed sterio to run my speakers, so it was more than enough.
took 2 minutes to plug in the usb, 2 min to run the audio cable from the usb dongle to the amp.
in 4 minutes i had 3 more zones up and running. XL had no problems picking up the usb audio device.

for only $20 each.
if you search around, i am sure you can find cheaper.

figured this would help out for people who want a cheap quick solution for extra zones.

Hey Bill,

How did you get XLobby to "see" the card's "7.1 output" as 3 separate 2-channel outputs?

Thanks,
Samson
