I have a set of 5.1 THX certified speakers on my PC.

Just an aside but that doesn't really mean anything per se. I'm not trying to pick on you specifically X7, it's just something I see on forums a lot. THX will certify anything, they certify bloody speaker bars.

Uh, huh. THC certs only speakers that can produce the reference sound levels at the default levels for the intended listening space. So, yes, some soundbars are quite capable of doing that for a 6'x6' room. Not so much if you put them in a theater sized room. You need to look at the level of THX cert on the speakers and match it to the size of the room.

most people can't pass a double blind on discrete vs onboard.

I've seen a ton of tests where people repeatedly pick discrete solutions. Again, it's all about the speakers used. No, a $50 set of headphones is probably not going to allow anybody to tell the difference.

PS - A shitton of people can't tell the difference between a 128kbps MP3 and a vinyl record. Since 128kbps is good enough for "most" people, should we stop making vinyl and higher quality MP3s and CDs?
