I am listening to stereo music, and I would like to have it play through all 4 channels. Not using the speaker fill "enhancement" in the playback device properties. I just want to clone the channels. Doesn't seem like it should be so hard. These are all full range speakers, so I wanna use them as such.

if you want quality stereo to 5.1 or 7.1 conversion using multi-channel speakers with 3.5mm plugs (most speakers), you need Dolby Pro-Logic (NOT Dolby Live!, Dolby Digital or other Dolby).
Least expensive Dolby Pro-Logic Card: ASUS $80.

Yeah, I saw that in my Google scour. I'm not even looking for dolby surround expansion or anything fancy. I just want each channel to come out of all the speakers, preserving left and right separation. No reverb or filtering. Just a straight copy, as though I hooked up some Y-cables (which I just might do). Dunno where the concept that stereo left and right should be interpreted as front left and front right. Should be "all left" and "all right". Wonder if I could make a plugin for winamp or something that just duplicates the channels. Thanks for the reply.
