It still doesn't sound like everything else. That's actually like saying a Denon AVR 4308 sounds the same as a low end amplifier just because they playback the same thing. (I think you're confusing quality with quantity, more sound in games, with EAX effects, doesn't equal better sound quality)

And why wouldn't the Xonar D2x sound great when using a 5.1 surround setup? It supports 24bit/192kHz over all channels so I fail to see how it would sound like crap when going from stereo to 5.1.
