Configuring multistreaming audio
The Realtek HD Audio Manager software enables you to listen to two different audio
sources on two different speaker sets.
For example, you can hear one audio source through a rear-panel speaker connection,
and a second source through a front-panel headphone or speaker connection. You must
configure multistreaming audio for the system if you want to hear two audio sources on

The front-panel audio output is the green stereo headphone connector only.
The rear-panel outputs are the speaker connectors that can be set up as multichannel out

documentation for information about setting up powered speakers or your AV receiver.
