For those of you who may not be aware... You can configure things, so that Skyrim outputs multi-channel surround sound just like on an Xbox or PS3. Assuming you already have your Windows PC hooked up to a multi-channel receiver, you go to the sound icon in the system tray.
Right click it and choose "Playback devices".
Now right click your sound device and choose "Configure Speakers", then choose 5.1 or 7.1.
Once configured, Skyrim will output fantastically decoded 5.1 or 7.1 surround sound on your PC so now you can hear your Dragon Shouts in their full glory.
One note, however: If you are using SPDIF or Optical, most likely you won't see the "Configure Speaker" option.. this only seems to work on "HDMI" connections.
