Ahahahahahaha

ahahahahaha


Those lil pc speakers are so ****ing stupid. I love it when ppl talk how great the lil plastic POS sounds

Before judging the sound in games, get a real gaming sound card
The F3 has much better sound quality than any SB. Not talking about eax and bs like that.

I like the sound better than the audigy and audigy2-those are the only other sound cards I've tried.

At least you have a sense of humour.

Audigy sounds remarkably fake, processed, and Pro Tools-y.

Rogo, you ever try one of the M-Audio cards?

Unfortunately I haven't heard the M-audio cards but know that they are audiophile grade


Here is a nice little review of the f3-He is hearing some of the things I have but I'm listening to it on a really good system even though I could listen to
it on my creek headphone amp and Grado SR120s.

On the upside, Crystal DACs are used by a number of high-end stereo equipment manufacturers, from folks like Cambridge Audio (D500 CD player) and the AudioNote DAC-One. Itís a safe bet they use Crystalís DACs because they tend to sound good. So, why should you listen to what I think I hear in these soundcards? Well, for starters, I am a trained professional musician. The Holy Grail for any sound reproduction device is to retain, as close as possible, the sound of the original event: the live performance. I know what itís like to perform, and I know what it sounds like. Audio presentation of the FF3 is a little more 'forward' in its sound than the SB Audigy. It also has a higher, more delicate and detailed sound than the Audigy. The FF3ís overall sound does give the impression of having a wider stereo sound than the Audigy, but not as deep. The Audigy, in comparison is less wide but deeper, more like you are listening at the music. In addition, the FF3 has a more intimate sound. The less deep soundstage is more like you are on the stage taking part of making the music. This is key, to my view. It makes you feel like you are participating with the music, rather than sitting back and listening. The FF3 also encouraged high-volume listening. Iím a head-banger at heart, so this was also a subjective mark in the right direction.

Hm, the Duo USB box that I've used a few times for recording has the best pure stereo sound I've ever heard from a computer. Don't know about the actual consumer-level cards, though.

Used it with a pair of Earthwerks mics (forget the model) and Sennheiser HD600s. Tasty stuff. It's fantastic for recording--just take a decent laptop, the Duo, pair of mics, and headphones, and voila, you can throw the stuff together in a concert hall and have a pretty decent recording setup.

I thought this thread was about CoD? CoD being a game, Audigy2 IS the best "gaming" sound card you can get, its my belief that people that dont think the Audigy2 is the best gaming card, they just tend to be against Creative Labs, rather than the card itself.

Not true, mi amigo! Audigy2 is simply a crappy card and people don't know better. It's like people thinking that more bass equals better sound. It doesn't. Usually, it equals worse sound. But oh well, people are stupid and those of us that know the Truth must protect ourselves from being led astray by such false idols.
