Introduction

Weather or not you are an avid gamer, or a music buff, you will no doubt at some point want to upgrade from onboard sound to a soundcard.  Now depending on what your budget, as well as what your tastes are will dictate which card to buy.  This review will be focusing on the Creative Audigy 4 sound card.  While this is the latest in the Audigy series, we will see if bigger is indeed better.  For as long as I can remember Creative has been the biggest supplier for soundcards across the globe.  Being founded all the way back in 1981 in Singapore, creative has been a mainstay in the computer audio world ever since.

Closer Look

Since this an OEM card, you don’t get a fancy box like the retail ones come with, instead you get the card, a driver disk, and a 24bit sticker (not shown). 

 

Removing the rubber bands that hold the driver disk to the card, I could see the top of the sound card.  Shaking the card out of the anti-static bag, gave me a look, at my new piece of audio driving device.  Being a relatively small card, using mostly surface mount circuitry, this card has a fairly small footprint.

 

On the side there is the standard hookups, Line in, Mic, Line Out, Sub, Surround, as well as a line level hookups, all located on the back of the card with color coded jacks.

 

That’s about everything that is worth noting on this card, next step is to install this baby!
