  1. Sorry for the newbie question but I need to know.

    I don't have a surround system for my pc so I can't just "listen" for the answer but,
    from what I know ac3 is the surround audio from a dvd, my question is this:
    When I transcode and ac3 stream to an mp3 audio track will the mp3 track play in surround (if I had the equipment)?

    Nope, only 2 channel (stereo).
