Re: Best and worst sound cards you have ever owned?

Best card? I've seen quite a few that I like, probably a Sound Blaster Pro 2, lousy floating amps aside. It doesn't sound that bad, and it's hard to beat its compatibility. I also very much like the sound of the original Ad Lib card. I've also met a good number of rather great-sounding clone cards …

Re: Sound Blaster 16 & AWE: From best to worst

Not true, a lot of Vibras have hanging note issues. I'm not sure why CT4170 is marked as not having it though. I have one, but never tested it. Right, I am thinking of the single-cycle DMA clicking bug, which ViBRAs don't seem to exhibit. I don't generally use my SB16s and ViBRA16s as MIDI output …

Re: Are there other S3 Trio64 V2 Drivers Available?

You may also try to use Win98 First Edition (4.10.1998). I think it is better suited for earlier systems. Moreover you can use 98lite to strip IE from it. I have tried 98lite before, and honestly I didn't really like it. Installing it breaks the Win98 USB mass storage driver, too. Fyi, I do have …

Re: Sound Blaster 16 & AWE: From best to worst

Far as I can gather, ViBRA16s don't have hanging notes regardless of the DSP version they claim to have. Instead, they have other problems (ringing/hissing artifacts after samples play, etc). The -SAT and -SBT have no really tangible difference between them that I can tell, a CT2511 is a CT2511 …

Re: Mystery Motherboard

Far as I can gather my board looks completely identical to yours. Yours also has the CY7C188 dirty TAG chip and MR BIOS as mine has, as well. Only difference I can tell is the IDE controller is an Appian ADI/2 chip instead of Adaptec (they're the same chip apparently). With regards to write-back, I …

Re: Sound cards - from best to worst

To me, AudioDrives are AudioDrives, with relatively little variation. I don't really see any major compelling reason to get an ES1879 if you've already got an ES1868. It should probably work quite similarly to your ES1868/9. For the record though, I do very much like ESFM. It's a nice alternative …
