Turtle Beach Audio Advantage SRM ReviewFormer staff writer - March 9, 2007
Installing the Audio Advantage does not require a college education - attach the supplied USB cable to the SRM, then find an unused USB port on your Desktop or laptop, insert the driver CD into your CD/Rom drive and follow the on-screen instructions.
Once the physical installation of the sound card and the software are complete, I suggest you use the included demo before attempting to configure the sound card on your own. It will familiarize you with the many options you have.
The supplied demo is interactive. When you click on the play button, it will auto play. Alternatively, you can test the different settings manually by clicking the icons in the sound source, moving path and environment areas. The right side on the screen can be manipulated with your cursor and you can change where you will hear sound, so that you can get a feel for the total experience.
Sound Control Panel:
The sound control panel is where you will actually set up your speakers. Since you can utilize multiple settings, I suggest taking the time to adjust them in order to take full advantage of the potential the sound card offers.
The first tab on the control panel is broken into three parts: settings summary, speaker configuration and volume control. Settings summary allows you to see what controls throughout the whole control panel are activated.
Speaker configuration, allows you to set what speaker mode you will be using, be it headphones, 5.1, 7.1 etc. You can also test your set-up by using the test and loop options.
The last option is the master volume toggle and the balances for your speakers.
