3 out of 5 eggs Tough Fit, Minimal Difference 09/02/2012

This review is from: HT | OMEGA CLARO II 7.1 Channels 24-bit 192KHz PCI Interface Sound Card

Pros:

Provides great sound. EMI shield should prevent distortion. EQ is good.

Cons:

It was a TOUGH fit. I'm pretty sure I had to warp my PCI slot a little. It's partially my fault for getting a PCI card instead of a PCI-e version. I read online that the front panel quality was superior to that of the PCI-e version. What I didn't realize is that people who review sound cards and headphones are complete nutcases that like to write elaborate reviews on things they pretend to hear. Seriously, if you are going for a sound card, you should either go for a budget card, or a pricier one with a built in amp. Everything in the middle is a waste, and a different pair of headphones/EQ adjustment will probably offer a better experience than a new sound card. I'm sure better products will offer a better experience, but it will not be found here.

Other Thoughts:

Over the discrete sound card I got with my Maximus Formula X38, the sound improvement was very very minimal. I basically paid for a superior EQ. I run them with a pair of Shure SRH 840's. Very flat headphones, but they don't react well to bass EQ unfortunately. I suggest going for a cheaper card, you won't be able to tell a difference, I promise you.
