  1. and i quote:
    "Azalia interface, Realtek ALC883, Supports Analog 5.1 Channel Output"

    again with the "supports"...does this mean if i get the bastard i can use my 5.1 speakers with it? Outta the box? little modification?

    Well, the chip may support 5.1 audio indeed.

    You need 3 for analog 5.1 and connectors are a luxury when it comes to laptops.. Looking at the photo on that page, I see only 3 audio jacks, which are line out, mic and line in.

    Better check the manual for exact kinds of connectors you have there. You need either 3 analog output jacks or a SPDIF connector on that laptop to get 5.1.

    well the pictures on that site "might" be inacurate...msi is known to use other pictures of their other laptops with the same case...but it could be the same modle

    the manual is out on another modle (MS-16332)...that i thought was the same thing as the the one i gave the link for(675) but aparently the difference is the sound chip, dimentions...and thats i dono

    the manual for the ms 16332 says it has only mic in, line out, and line u said...but it has a spdif
    as for the 675 i have next to no clue as to what connections it has...the 16332 just got released like 2 days ago, and i dont when the 675 will be releasd...or if they r the same thing ty for posting
