    I don't know why its not enabled. I would reinstall the software, from ASUS, and see if that helps. I have no information on that.

    @fireberd>> Request you to check the below 2 links:-

    F&D F6000U | Best 5.1 Speakers | Best Laptop Speakers in India
    F&D F6000 | 5.1 Speaker Systems | Best Speakers for Home Theater

    After checking the specifications of both, please let me know that out of F6000 and F6000U, which is the better in terms of sound quality, more deep bass etc?
    I understand that F6000U comes with FM+ USB Card reader but I can live without that, I am just looking for heart thumping bass.

    Please also check F&D F5019 | 5.1 Speakers for PC | Best Multimedia Speakers in India

    Thanks in advance.

    All three systems are intended for specific uses or interfaces. Can't really compare them. The Laptop speakers are designed for a laptop PC. The Home Theater speakers are designed for more than just PC sound. The 5.1 speakers for PC are designed for a PC system but use the Analog output of the PC's sound card.

    Without actually hearing the systems, its a "guess" on what would be better. Sorry.

    I understand that but how about when you compare them in terms of their total RMS, frequency response, sub-woofer size etc?

    You can do the comparison just as well as I can, by reading the specifications of each unit.

    I'll be off-line most of the day so I won't be able to look at those devices until possibly tomorrow. I have a full day scheduled in my recording studio.

    If I were to pick one for my PC from the listed 3, I would select this one, just based on what is posted on the site, not based on actually hearing the systems.

    I would still want to hear them before I actually purchased anything. I could be totally wrong after actually hearing them.
