I want to use fb2k + 5.1 surround; what setup/plugins do you recommend
Hi.
I have not used this forum very much,because all the topics looks extremly technical,and i am not there yet,not at all.
Ill get to the subject:what,witch and how should a new foobar user behave,or what is must have components,and perhaps what to look fore.I will say it in english:how do i built up my foobar,there is so many compinations and i do not know what to look for,options i believe is the right word.
System specs:hitachi 50" plasma with harddrive,5,1 system audio speakers+subwoofer.speakers/satelites 5+120 watts.subwoofer 420 watts
yamaha dsp ax3200 amplifier.
all this connected to acer aspire 77736z,that runs windows 7 home premium 64 bitt.
Some kind advice is needed an very much appriciated.

Kind Regards Casiasser

I'd say, try to get along with the standard installation first. If you are missing something, try to find a component providing the desired functionality.
Later you may browser through the whole component list and find out whether there may be something you would like but haven't thought of.

Reading parts of the wiki might be helpful to understand how foobar2000 works.

Something that (in my opinion) you should do with every software: Explore all menus, try everything. Note that you can use shift+rightclick in some places, you may also rightclick dropdown menu arrows, ...

In case it is part of your question: In terms of sound, foobar2000 does not require anything additional to output audio at full quality. Even the different output modes that might be available for your sound-card will make no audible difference, unless something is very wrong somewhere.

If you’re talking about look-and-feel, why not browse the threads we have for users to post screenshots of their setups? Perhaps you’ll find a theme you’d like to use, or just some inspiration. And, as herojoker said, the Knowledgebase should help you understand the basics, such as title-formatting, the Preferences, the different UIs that are commonly used, etc.
