Bargain

Recently bought a system from OC and wasn't happy with the onboard sound vs my trusty old Audigy 4 Pro. Sadly the Audigy wouldnt fit into the new system (pci card) so I got this as a replacement.

Installation was a doddle but the sound quality was terrible! Turns out on my particular setup the SBX studio software really mangles the sound for some reason. So for anybody with similar issues try disabling SBX and then tweak your speaker setup with it turned off.

I wasn't expecting audiophile quality from a card at this price point but I also wasn't expecting it to sound quite as good as it does. Really very impressed and the usual speedy service from OCUK is just icing on the cake.

Superb

Have always used onboard sound, though I would try a dedicated card for a change and WOW, glad I did, sound is so much better more detail and better soundstage. Great bit of kit, buy one!

Great upgrade

Having had the need for a new card (my old pci sound blaster having served me for almost 6 years now) i took the plunge with this, my god what a difference, not only is the sound clear and precise im sure several games are faster now (maby the old card was holding them back??).

Installing was a breeze, took longer to take the old card out, sound quality is brilliant, Win7 detected it as a HD sound card and installed generic drivers, the proper software/drivers (SBZ_CD_L13_1_00_22 at time of writing) is very useful, clear and has many options ive found not only useful but fun, the best one of these is the options to chance your outgoing voice to sound very funky and best of all it has a dedicated headphone socket so i no longer need to use the on board sound for teamspeak3

ONLY problem ive come across so far is that many games and internet vids (youtube, iplayer, ect) DON'T like it when you change from speaker to headphone mode and vice versa (teamspeak didn't care less), it will either not do it (no sound) or crash the game/app, to me this is not a deal breaker, just annoying.

The card itself is not overly large but i feel it could have been half the size as theres a lot of blank space and suspect the size it is is mainly for the em shield (not fitted to this version) the red led lights only seem to come on during bootup (at least ive never noticed them other times) and there no controls in the software for them not that i mind as all the leds in my case are blue.

It should be noted that this is OEM so no drivers, cables, em shield, ect are supplied but lets be honest here anyone who buys OEM knows what there doing 99% of the time anyways, also the plugs are not colour coded so it can be fiddly to put the jacks in the right sockets.

Service as always was top, ordered the card and had the dispatched notice within the hour. only downside is it took 5 days to get to me but thats the post office for you, don't blame them either id be narked if the gov where selling my job off
