Creative SB Audigy 2 Review
Recensita da TweakTown l'ultimo prodotto Creative in fatto di schede audio, ovvero la Sound Blaster ASudigy 2, che pare contenga al suo interno già un principio di <a href= target=_blank>Palladium</a> <font size="1">Conclusion Overall, after putting the Audigy 2 through a plethora of tests, we'd have to say that it is the highest quality consumer-level sound card available on the market today. Its rich feature set, superb sound quality and generous software bundle put it head and shoulders above anything we've ever tested. Furthermore, the Audigy 2 is an innovation in many ways. Firstly, it is the first consumer level sound card to feature DVD audio support, paving the way for much higher quality audio on the PC than the tradition CD format. Secondly, the quality of the product is further confirmed through its prestigious THX certification - Another first for consumer level sound cards. Finally, the included support for 6.1 audio is another innovation that greatly adds to the realism of both games and movies, placing you directly in the centre of the action. After playing with the card for a number of weeks now, we can't help but imagine the possibilities of coupling the Audigy 2 with a decent virtual reality headset. We already have the Audigy 2, now it's just a matter of finding a *decent* VR headset. All that said, owners of the original Audigy may not see much need to upgrade to an Audigy 2, as the increase in sound quality and features, in our opinion, doesn't completely justify the price. However, as mentioned earlier, those upgrading from older sound cards will be very pleased with the improvement. The bottom line is, if you're looking at upgrading your sound card, whether you're a gamer, audiophile or musician, you won't be disappointed with the Creative Soundblaster Audigy 2. - Pros Superb sound quality DVD audio THX certification Dolby Digital EX providing 6.1 channel audio 24-bit/96kHz playback Platinum version comes with breakout box and remote Excellent software bundle - Cons Slightly expensive at $199 US Not a great improvement over the original Audigy </font> <img src= align=absmiddle><a href= target=_blank>Leggi recensione SB Audigy 2</a>
