Soundmax AD1988B Driver for Windows 7 x64

I have M2N SLI Deluxe MB amd there is problem, that they don't have 5.1 via s/pdif output.
Receiver can receive only DD, DTS and PCM sound.
My MB then send only stereo sound. (via S/PDIF)

I'm using Windows 7 x64

(allow: 48kHz 44.1kHz) Query for SPDIF output or higher if you think its safe for receiver. Maybe its a codec problem. I would be ok with stereo sound. Sounds like its working fine.

Unfortunately Asus did not release a Win7 audio driver for your MB
You might want to install Vista x64 audio driver instead:
