    What would be a good way to connect the Razer Leviathan and the Razer Core together?
    Thank's for the support

    I have one but I want to directly connect the core to the Leviathan and I don't know if I need to use a USB to headphone jack for surround sound.
    Thanks

    I don’t have the core, but I saw there’s connection issues on USB port from v1, so the best way to connect your leviathan is through PC (your Blade) or from Audio output from external monitor, unless you have Core V2 that has splitted lanes between GPU and USB ports for giving better max bandwidth from your headphones.

    I am going to get the Core V2 and I did not know there were external audio ports on monitors

    There are audio outputs on monitors?

    Yes on its I/o port like earphones jack. HDMI could also transfer audio signal.

    Would the surround sound work on a headphone jack?

    I think, yes not quite sure though, I got surround Pro key some how for buying hammerhead V2 and attached it to my Blade.

    Don't recommend connecting USB audio devices through the core v2. My Focusrite Scarlett really struggles with that. Use a DisplayPort (or HDMI) monitor and connect the speaker to the analog-output of that. Or use Bluetooth, the Levi has that. Modern BT devices have latency about the same as a digital display so you don't have to worry about lag.

    The Leviathan doesn't have surround sound, it is stereo, two channel input, two channel amplifier, two sets of drivers, and no speakers behind you. "virtual surround" is just a farce...

    Are you sure? According to the specs specifications it has indeed Dolby 5.1 virtual surround for immersion. I have only mini one and in this one you’re right only stereo, but not on the big one.

    "Virtual Surround"...

    Without having additional drivers behind the user calling a stereo speaker "surround sound" is just because of DSP. With a digital connection it will accept multichannel audio and downsample it to stereo.

    Don’t know what exactly what it is, but I think even “virtual”, it sounds still better than stereo.
