Sound BlasterX Makes Noise on Neil's Messy Basement

  • Print
Creative Labs Sound BlasterX AE5This episode of Neil's Messy Basement has been a really (and we mean a really, really) long time coming!

This edition of the show is all about audio on PC.  It started as a review of the Sound BlasterX AE5 sound card, and became so much more.  It even required a special doctors visit (seriously!).  While it will be valuable to all gamers, this is particularly useful for VR gamers that are trying to determine how to best meet their audio needs (needs they may not have even realized!).

This episode talks about the audio lingo and what it all means, it establishes a comparable with multiple motherboard solutions (most if not all motherboard audio is based on Realtek), and it makes recommendations based on your circumstances.

Much more is covered as well and most will come out knowing a lot more than they did going in.  Suffice to say, we really liked the Sound BlasterX AE5, and the big question that needed answering is why - so here we go!
