it blow out your eardrums?
not, but the 3D audio quality of the Montego II Quadzilla is
simply amazing for a card available at this price. Of course
it's not going to match the caliber of Creative Labs new SB
Live! Platinum with the Live! drive, but then again it's priced
a few hundred dollars less (and it was released well before
the Live! Platinum). The caliber of the audio of this sound
card blew me off my feet and I haven't come back to earth yet.
Hats off to Turtle Beach for an excellent job on this sound
utilization of this sound card is a little above average but
nothing to worry about. And if you are worrying about it then
I suggest that you upgrade your CPU first and buy a sound card
part that you've all been waiting for, how this sound card performs
in games and music. Listening to music on this sound card is
nothing spectacular but it will allow you to listen to all your
favorite MP3's and Blink 182. This sound card performed beautifully
in all the games I played it in, especially when I had my four-speaker
system blaring sound. The sound in Thief, which uses A3D 1.0,
was simply amazing and so realistic I was actually scared at
some points during the game. When I tested a version of Half-Life
using an A3D 2.0 patch it was simply amazing, it was sound taken
to the next level.
