How closely does DOSBox reproduce the various sound cards it emulates? I've seen some threads about OPL specifically, but surprising very little beyond that. Has anyone ever done any kind of side by side comparison? Acknowledging of course there's no universal answer to this question, of course depends on game, speakers, your ears, etc.

That is something that I have been curious about too, especially in regards to GUS (Gravis Ultrasound) compatibility . Being lucky enough to have a real, currently working card, I have never really bothered to use a virtual GUS in DOSBox . When I get my audio mixer setup working to my liking (still very much a WIP), I will probably do some test recordings of the real thing vs DOSBox emulation, but that will take a while .
