In this mode the card can work in a relatively weak computer. Mirroring of the signal spectrum at 24 kHz indicates at resampling into 48 kHz at a certain stage of signal sampling. A signal from an AC’97 codec is applied to it. I believe that You must use a program found at http: The SACD is not that bad, but I have no desire to pay a great deal of money to Sony for some exotic drive and for some pulse-width modulation with a sound which allegedly doesn’t yield to the good old PCM. They serve for the professional-quality AK We compared the records first in the PCM stereo format 16bit

Comparison with characteristics of Creative Audigy and Egosys Waveterminal Let’s compare the Hoontech card with other popular cards to determine its positioning.

The correlation was equal for 16bit At 24bit 96kHz the testing in a digital mode failed because of breakup of the synchronization in some tests.

The second tab allows professional vaue interfaces to be supported independently by each valur virtual outputs. Luckily, theRightMark Audio Analyzer puts all cards in equal test conditions, and now no magic specifications will help. It is necessary to compare.

The DSP24 Value sounds sharper, thus, making us think that the sound becomes brighter.

DSP24 Value

Waky, unfortunately I misplaced my original driver CD. The new drivers offer a completely different interface: I will try changing PCI slots later today to see if it works then. According to the program the card must work in DirectSound applications with the number of 2D streams not more than Despite a high-fidelity testing signal the AFC breaks after 20 kHz.


And now I’m starting examination of the card so that you can see why I’ve made such a conclusion. A while back, I had to install the card on a new machine.

Hoontech DSP24 Value – Driver Problems – Home Recording forums

Very good in detail. Probably, it is resulted from hardware mixing of those 20 channels with unavoidable reduction of the dynamic range and anti-aliasing by dithering. By the way, a human being keeps in his memory sharp impressions just for several seconds; after that they become blurry, and then turn into emotional xsp24. Let’s see what Hoontech offers. Results 1 to 5 of 5.

Audigy The ds;24 sounded differently on the Event studio speakers. I found the driver on a German site and was at first leary — but I’ve had no problems at all. The Audigy demonstrates mirroring of the signal at a half of the resampling frequency: Moreover, a lot of experts do not think that its sound is better than that of even a CD-DA.

I’m beginning to suspect XP is bugging out on me. When we switch back to the Waveterminal dsp42 sound become paler but our ears instantly adapt to it. It is quite a balanced solution for a music-lover tired of multimedia cards with cheap codecs.


BioShock Infinite and Metro: The rear output of the Audigy plays with less distortions than the front one, but it still yields to the DSP24 Value. Hoontech is not at the top in the sphere of professional audio equipment, and its cards are interesting for PC users because of three aspects: The DirectSound is provided with hardware SRC and digital mixing of 16 streams with parameters not higher than 16bit 48kHz. The situation was improved by the drivers from the manufacturer’s site.

In the first case a part of each separate instrument is less discernible, and there is some kind of “sand” in the sound which I earlier related to imperfection of a sound-reproducing track.

So anyway I was wondering if anyone has had this problem and could share a solution. That is why in our tests we played music simultaneously on the comparable devices instantly switching from one to the other. The first one excellently plays games, the second perfectly reproduces sound from both cards.
