Since I'm no true audiophile (if there is such a thing), I'm not entirely sure I can explain in correct terms what I mean, but it sounds simply "dead" to me (as in opposite of "alive").
I think I sort of understand. Different people are able to discern different things when it comes to sound. I was never much of an audiophile myself, and I'm also using a simple pair of Logitech 2.1 speakers for DOS gaming, so it might not be that apparent to me.
On the other hand, I can immediately recognize the difference between 8-bit and 16-bit sound samples in late-era DOS games like Master of Orion 2. Maybe it's because I had a SB16 as a kid, but using SBPro in such games just doesn't sound right to me.
