Re: Sound Blaster: From best to worst

@Burrito78 just wanted to point out a small error in the spreadsheet: the SB32 CT3930 is listed as a PnP card, but it definitely isn't. Every single setting needs to be configured via jumpers, so this fact in addition to featuring a genuine OPL3 makes it quite peculiar when compared to the other …

Re: Sound Blaster: From best to worst

Hey Burrito78, just wanted to hint you at the results I've got from experimenting with swapping DAC chips on my CT1730/40 (it has the 1730 on the sticker on the back side). You can see my thread here: https://www.vogons.org/viewtopic.php?f=62&t=86117 From what I've found there, I wouldn't state …

Re: Sound Blaster: From best to worst

I managed to find two more CT2940 cards and one CT3600.

Bonus question which one is the longest? Coolest looking is the original Sound Blaster 1.0/1.5 aka "Killer Card" CT1320 with its …

Re: Sound Blaster: From best to worst

I remember i had these on some cards/driver versions. Should be always set to 1x, if clipping occurs. Also there could be jumpers …

Re: Sound Blaster: From best to worst

CT4170 rocks for headphone usage If you don't mind CQM (or actually prefer it because you had it back in the day and that was how your games sounded), then yes. Also if you don't need a WT header and can live with the other Vibra limitations...but Vibra cards have a wonderfully clear sound (maybe …

Re: Sound Blaster: From best to worst

Welcome @Metalliferous! Very much appreciated! Also thanks to this awesome community (and probably Google), this thread reached well over 10.000 views by now! Regarding noise measurements: Its a different topic but results should absolutely be merged into this document, yes. I hope that someone with …
