That speaker is self powered you wouldnt want to run it through an amp for any reason.http://www.m-audio.com/images/global/media_hqpics/M3_8_back_media_8x10.jpg
would a ZxR be powerful enough to input directly to the above? (it's a 200W speaker) Or would you need to connect your ZxR to an integrated amp. first, then to the above?
I had a X-Fi Titanium HD for the longest time, then I purchased the SB-ZXR.Because I am lazy...
So I currently have a Titanium HD. That goes to a Schiit Lyr to some HD800's.
For gaming will a ZXR be noticeable?
For music with a ZXR be noticable?
I have my Recon3D Fatality in the same position - it fits just fine (motherboard is *still* ASUS P5G41-M LX2/GB). It's one of only two cards in the computer (my GTX550Ti is the other). It's the PCI Express slot below it that you will lose with any dual-slot GPU (my Ti replaced a single-slot passive-cooled HD5450 - the upgrade ate the PCI-E slot below it).Will Z fit in the top pcie slot ?
There is macho 120 on the cpu so there is NO space above that pcie slot, so the card have to be leveled with that slot.
And right below in x16 slot there is 7870 from gigabyte.
The file name is the same, they are just trying to stop people on the forums from bitching. Ouch...New drivers:
Added Enhancement / Features:
Multiple fixes that improve the driver's overall stability and performance
Added support for ASIO playback and recording
Are you freaking kidding me???The file name is the same, they are just trying to stop people on the forums from bitching. Ouch...
They went through the effort of updating their 8.1 driver page as well:
Presuming they have people working in the drivers, they should have just released something with a few fixes instead if bullshitting people. Creative is terrible at PR, whoever handles customer expectations doesn't comprehend they just keep pissing people off.Was thinking the same thing, when have they not made a mess with the drivers for users .
any idea why or a way around this: when switching from headphones to speakers (both plugged in to the back of the soundcard in the right spots) if you have a youtube video playing for example, the audio stops until you reload the page... this happens with game audio, etc too
is this a windows issue?
That's normal. If you're not using some form of audio expansion or remapping, your audio will play in whatever format the source is. Videos and Music are generally 2 Speaker (L/R).Anyone know how to get speaker fill turned on for 5.1 speaker setups? I'm new to 5.1 so I don't know if I'm doing it right but my music is only coming out of the L/R speakers. Everything is connected correctly and the speakers all sound off during the tests but music/videos are all on 2 speakers.
