Greyzecan you tell me about your experience moving from the ZxR to Nu Audio?What improvements did you get in gaming and music?How did you move on from SBX Pro Studio? I've used it for so many years now, when I disable the Crystalizer everything sounds rubbish.
GreyzeCreative cards have "SBX Pro Studio" or "BlasterX Acoustic Engine" in the newer devices I think, features like the Crystalizer to improve audio clarity. Did you use this? Are you still satisfied with Nu Audio even though its not on those devices?
GreyzeWhoa quite a scathing comment on SBX Pro Studio! You seem to have quite a bit of knowledge in this domain so your opinion would be perfect for this thread. I've only ever had Creative sound cards and have used SBX through them all (and other iterations). I've always found it fantastic for improving my type of music and many games so obviously I can't agree. But since i've never had anything else your comment has given me hope I may genuinely get a better audio experience if I upgrade. You see if I did get a Nu Audio Pro, I fully expected to trade away all the great things I currently have for just marginally better audio quality and no driver bugs. As for Virtual surround:I was happy with CMSS-3D on my old X-Fi card and I don't have problems with the SBX Pro Studio successor. R6 Siege is the most "audio dependent" game I have and right now I have absolutely no problems pinpointing enemies, traps, gadgets etc. To be honest I can't imagine things getting better than this and you are saying Nahimic is even better??Can't deny I'm pretty skeptical of it being better since you said it actually makes sound distorted. So far from googling I'm reading mixed opinions on what people believe is best.Also to my knowledge Dolby Atmos only works if games support it so that doesn't really help me. Whats your setup by the way? are these your experiences from owning a Nu Audio Pro, or is this from what you've researched? Tyvm
