yay for good sound. I wonder how my p7p55d deluxe onboard compares against the titanium? I think it does a pretty darn good job and I for sure have the speakers to test it lol

Curious to see more benchmarks from sound cards, you don't see too often the sound cards or other unpopular parts of the computer besides the CPU, graphics card, motherboard, and memory. But then again visual is always the more easily stimulated sense vs hearing. I wonder since EAX is no longer going to be used in future games, what are they going to market now to appeal their image to the sheep? baaaa aaa aaa aaa aaa aaa :laugh: joking

Drivers were always rumored to be horrible on Creative's X-Fi line. Not to mention one of my sound cards would once in a while emit a crazy sound that forced me to turn down my speaker volume, but I switched it out and now no more problems but we'll see.

It's just plain sad that the majority are sticking with their on-board noise producers...
And there isn't much competition on the sound card front.

Those THX "technologies" are just pure marketing.

PC Surround? Multiple channels mixed in two channels with some added delay and weird echo, WOO look at me I got surround sound! NOT

PC Speaker? Bass without a subwoofer? Some virtual bass enhancement gimmick that distorts
the lower frequencies so some cardboard-eared vice guy can brag about his tremendous bass output

PC Crystalizer? YAY for the loudness! Add some bass and treble to give the false feeling that it sounds better! Everyone falls for that...
Maybe it even smooths some distortion (and flattens the dynamics)

PC Dialog Plus? OOH, lets boost some mid freqs and call it a day

PC Smart Volume? Hey, this actually sounds good... If you're player software doesn't already have replay gain


Oh please, just give me a flat frequency response curve and DECENT EQ, parametric one.
And maybe an option to switch on compression to lower dynamics for night time, adjustable that is.

Totally do not agree. If you're not into sound, that is quite enough. Most people will only yawn if you show them you're way cool Linn speakers and whatever soundcard makes them justice. They might notice if you play some songs, but they still don't care. Onboard Realtech is more than enough for your avarage joe.

I'm a bit of musician, so I can notice, but I still don't care. If I ever get me those awesome spekers I want (but will never buy, I rather buy a decent amp or a new bass or something) I might look into something more, but I'm fine with my onboard. :)

It doesn't take an uber set of speakers to hear the difference. Any half decent set of headphones can take advantage of a sound card, and show the shortcomings of on-board sound. You can spend as little as $40 on headphones that make it obvious.

Maybe so, but I still maintain onboard sound is enough.

Yeah, but then again, most people think 128Kb/s MP3's sound fine.

Oh wow I didn't know that!:rolleyes:

And do you know why many people prefer Auzentech over Creative? Because their cards have Creative chips AND good analog output AND tweaked, less shitty Creative drivers.
I actually have to agree there. Tried a X-Fi Titanium, but the Forte is leagues better.

I tried my HD555 and DT990 on ALC889, it's not THAT bad. Yes there is an obvious difference between onboard and my Essence ST but it's mostly due to the lack of power. I didn't notice any obvious noise. I don't see how average people would be horrified by the difference.

Average people generally don't look into buying sound cards either.

And I have a headphone amp, so power isn't an issue. On board just can't do good recordings any justice. Even my Audigy 2 ZS sounds better.

I have an X-Fi XtremeMusic I don't use anymore - I know the sound quality is far better than my on-board; I just got annoyed with

1. the cost of a cable to connect to my front panel audio
2. not working with ubuntu
3. not of any use on my media pc (which has an Audigy in it anyway) as I use the HD4550 HDMI audio to the TV (this will change when I get a receiver sorted)
4. blocking my video card air intake on my motherboard (TA790GX 128M - if you have one you'll know the gfx card needs to go in the lower slot leaving only one PCI slot available and too close...)

So it's sat on my shelf until I decide to put in in again, and try and make up my own cable... anyone got a cable they're not using?

Why no one has said this so here it goes

WHO CARES!!!

I hate Creative bad drivers and bad all around support,Why have this when there is far better sound cards on the market

1,ASUS Xonar 1.3HDMI
2,Forte
3,The Vanilla Xonar
4,Christ the built in sound on most ATI cards will sound better..

This is just my opinion.

So, Meizuman, what else do you recommend then? What kind of soundcard do you have in use? :rolleyes:

BTW: There are some benchmarks, showing that a PCI-Soundcard reduces the involved work of the CPU for soundprocessing up to 3%. In comparism with Onboard-Soundchips ...
