Creative Audigy 4 Sound CardFormer staff writer - December 10, 2006
Stereo crosstalk this is again a comparison between channels, a direct comparison of the left, and right channels of this card, to see just how accuratly they can reproduce the sound.
If you are still lost there is a list of other cards that were tested on the Rightmark website.
When I first went to test this soundcard, I plugged in my Sennheiser HD500’s and started to listen. At first I was a little skeptical, as the bass was a bit boomy, and the highs sounded a little sloppy, but checking through my setting, I found that I still had my EQ setup for onboard. So after resetting the EQ back to stock, the bass tightened up, and the treble came in a bit, down to a nice level, though it still sounded slightly “light” after giving my EQ a slight tweak I was away to happy sound! After that I ran the output form the soundcard to my home theater system, to see if there was anything, and I noticed that the line out level was a bit low, I was required to use slight boosting on my Receiver. Though aside from the slightly low output on the card, the sound quality was excellent, I also tested the card with a cheap pair of headphones. The sound was tight and sharp, and the headphones where sounding pretty good for costing about $20. Over all this card is an avid performer, the soundstage recreation is very tight, and very accurate.
