G780 - audio card

Hi. I own a G780 Lenovo notebook. My question is: support the audio card std, the 5.1 surround and the 5.1 multichannels?

 

Thanks in advance.

 

Best,

Re: audio card

From looking at your maintence manual, the only audio output I see is for Headphones with a seperate input for microphone.  This usually means it can support stereo headsets and communications headsets (with built in mic) in 2 channel (stereo) mode.  The notebook appears to also only use two speakers for sound production whitch would also indicate 2 channel (stereo) mode.

 

A USB sound card (dongle) could allow for 5.1 attachment provided it has the right outputs (Left, Right front channels, Left, Right rear channels, Center and Sub).  This may also be supplied by a docking station if that came with the notebook.  In general, notebook computers do not have a need for 5.1 sound as they are "mobile" devices at heart, meant for portable use.   Only when "docked" would one expect to be able to plug in an expansive set of sound devices.

 

Cheers.

Re: audio card

One such as this would be a good idea.  Not fluent in German to read specs but it has the right jacks, both in and out for surround sound.

 

7.1 USB Sound Box - Amazon (DE)

 

Cheers.
