Hi. I am researching to find a new sound card to replace (currently a
Creative Labs Sound Blaster Live! Platinum [LiveDrive not installed]
for my next computer upgrade (AMD64 or P4) in two months.
I heard a lot of great things about M-Audio Revolution 7.1's audio
quality, drivers, support, etc. However, its EAX support is very poor
especially in *** . I am a big PC gamer (play a lot of newer games
like DOOM 3, UT2004, etc.).
I don't like Creative Lab's stuff because of poor/buggy driver, bad
support, and so-so quality. But its hardware EAX is nice for *** .
Since I am still going to use my old Klipsch ProMedia v2-400 speakers
(4.1), I won't be using every features of the sound card like 7 speakers
Please note that I will be planning to play Linux native games (Q3A,
UT2004, Enemy Territory, RTCW) as well so driver support is important. I
was not impressed with emu10k1 driver in Red Hat Linux 7.2. Quality and
support was bad. Not even EAX support!
Thank you in advance for any advices. :)
