    Umm... I'm just asking, but when is the soundroom page going to get updated? I've joined and gerrynicol too. I'm really sorry DanishDevil if you're having work or something - I'm just asking.

    Yeah, I'm sorry. I don't know what happened... First I previewed the post and then I edited it. And then there are the two posts???? :confused:
    EDIT: Can a moderator please delete the first post.

    I'll update it now. Sorry guys. I've been switching to Intel and going water and modding my case and I just got back from school and unpacking and adjusting to home again and it's been kind of hectic.

    I'm a bad club president :(

    Oh, sorry man. I'm rushing you and you had work... :banghead: And about that case modding - when you're finished can you post some pics.
    OK, ontopic now - I tried the boost 22 on open windows so they don't shatter... HOLY HELL!!! The sub moved my bed... :wtf: It was like maybe 20 seconds and it took me 2 or 3 days to restore my hearing to normal. Everything was falling off the shelves! And I've got plenty of neighbours... Man, I don't suppose they like Sodom. :D So, point taken - NEVER DO THAT AGAIN!!! Hell, maybe I will try that some day again, but I'll be drunk as sh1t before I do this again... :laugh:

    I just reinstalled my sound card driver but before I did, I tried the Boost level on the optical setting, the output sounded really distorted, so I put it back to normal, haven't tried it after reinstallation, might give it a go. I take it i'm the only one to get this:ohwell:

    Whenever I go boost anything, I have to turn everything else to minimum.

    System sound to bare minimum, and program at minimum. Then, boost 11 sounds like a normal volume!

    Oh, yes! :D Everybody regrets that I bought the speakers, but I don't. What are you gonna do? I'm 14 and I like BIG sound, the kind that makes the neighbours hate you in every way possible.
    I've tried with optical from my Asus Striker II Formula and I've had no distortion or weaker sound.

    Why use X-Fi Prelude and optical on your Z-5500? You should try using the analogue outs of the card, I bet your system will sound way better, now you're wasting the most interesting part in the Auzentech, by transfering to the Z-5500's DACs.

    Why don't you just send me the Prelude, and you can use the optical on your onboard sound :D It'll sound the same :roll:

    well if I were you I would just take out the sound card and use the coax or opitical that comes out of the motherboard. Its pure signal with no distortion(get a good cable) and the sound is amazing :D.

    I used to funk with my x-fi and the z5500 but I gave up, no matter how hard I tried I would get distortion when the volume got louder. But made the switch to coax about 2 years back, and I will never go back to analog(besides the ipod).

    It's only through the analog cables it distorts, over the optical it's fine

    Ahhhh you kids...

    I think I'm going to leave my X-Fi Fatal1ty Champion out of my rig and try the Optical on my board. Anyone want to buy it? :)

    I may or may not go Auzentech X-Fi...but onboard opty should work for now.
