ASUS Xonar DG sound card
     Mon, Jan 10 2011 | 4:03P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"This little baby packs an integrated headset amplifier, while being small enough to fit in the low-profile form factor. It has four analog outputs as well as one optical output, not counting the front panel header made available on the expansion card directly."

ASUS Xonar Xense 7.1 Premium Gaming Audio Set
     Wed, Jan 05 2011 | 12:00P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
ASUS hasn't been in the PC audio market for all that long but in a short amount of time, they have gained the respect of many hard to please audio aficionados. Their latest creation is the Xense 7.1; an all-in-one solution that incorporates a sound card and a set of specially modified Sennheiser headphones. The goal of the Xense is to provide the perfect soundscape for gamers who want to dabble in all forms of auditory fields but will this make it a jack of all trades but master of none?

[Tech ARP] BIOS Option Of The Week - SDRAM RAS Precharge Delay
     Wed, Jan 05 2011 | 7:10A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Since 1999, we have been developing the BIOS Optimization Guide, affectionately known as the BOG. From a meager beginning of a single page, it now covers over 440 BIOS options. As old BOG readers will know, we started offering two editions of the BOG since Revision 8.0 - a simplified edition and the complete edition. Normally, the complete edition is only available to subscribers who help sponsor the development of the guide through a small fee. However, that changes today! From now on, we will post a BIOS option from the complete edition of the BIOS Optimization Guide every weekend. This week, we will be taking a look at the SDRAM RAS Precharge Delay BIOS setting."

Corsair HS1 USB Circumaural Gaming Headset Review
     Mon, Oct 18 2010 | 6:26A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"We found the Corsair HS1 USB Gaming Headset to have an excellent build quality and rather good sound quality for a company that is just getting into audio products for the very first time. The 50mm drivers and the enclosed ear cups offer great mid-range tones and, to our surprise, high-range tones didn't sound half bad either. The biggest shock to us was that the high-range sounded pretty darn good on the HS1 headset and listening to music on them was a great experience on any music where you have crisp vocals. We thought the 50mm drivers would be bass heavy, but..."

ASUS Xonar DG PCI Sound Card
     Mon, Oct 18 2010 | 6:26A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Since the very first of the Xonar boards from ASUS, we have been impressed with not only the choice of components used, but also with the overall design of all of the various iterations. This not so elegantly leads us into the very latest of these, known only as the ‘DG’ which is arguably the tamest Xonar to date. Rather than being an out-and-out brute of a thing like many others in the Xonar lineage, the DG goes for a far more stealthy approach to handling things. Using the older PCI port rather than one of the newer options is one of the first things that caught our eye; another is the built in headphone amp which complements the support for surround sound in either analog or digital, as well as comprehensive front panel access via an internal link to the supplied bracket."

Samsung F400 Bang & Olufsen Music Phone
     Wed, Apr 30 2008 | 3:49P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Now, phones aren’t usually my forte, but when Samsung asked if I wanted to review their new MP3 spouting mini-boom box of a phone, I couldn’t really say no. The real clincher was the Bang & Olufsen speakers embedded in the phone, which appealed to the audiophile in me. Unpacking it from its box, we can see that what the customer demands from a phone manufacturer these days is EVERYTHING. You get much more than just a charger and a little headset; with this phone we get a beefy looking set of headphones with in-line mic, data cable, software and a 1GB MicroSD card to boot."

Cyber Snipa Sonar 5.1 Gaming Headset Review
     Wed, Apr 30 2008 | 3:49A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“Cyber Snipa is emerging on the gaming grade market with quality products for a reasonable price. Today I got to a chance to take a look at the Cyber Snipa Sonar 5.1 Surround Sound Gaming Headset. The quality is much higher than I could have ever expected for the cost. Connecting through USB and having an in-line audio control the sound quality of the eight total speakers which includes a decided sub speaker in each ear. These stylish headphones provide premium comfort and cooling with soft foam covered with velour and mesh fabric.”

Hands On With DTS HD Master Audio
     Thu, Apr 17 2008 | 4:10P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Yesterday, Sony Computer Entertainment finally gave home theatre fanatics what they had been clamouring for since late 2006, when the PlayStation 3 console launched. With the delivery of the latest console firmware, version 2.30, owners whom have an amplifier capable of outputting PCM sound will benefit from improved sound with Blu-ray movies encoded in DTS HD Master Audio. The days of lossy audio in home theatre are over; now the onus is on home theatre fans to embrace these new technologies, and if they truly love the art form, there is absolutely no reason why they shouldn’t."

immersive 2.1 channel gaming speakers
     Tue, Dec 30 2003 | 1:01A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Listening to the Sicuro 2.1 Gaming Speakers with my eyes closed, it is difficult to pinpoint where the satellites are placed, just like it's hard to tell where a subwoofer is in a room. This is due to the omni- directional design of the speakers. It's not a full surround-sound effect (like it's coming from behind you), but the sound is much wider than regular unidirectional speakers. This gives you an immersion that regular 2.1 speakers cannot provide."
