Probably best not to even put that stuff onto your hardrive. Being a longtime EAX fan, I can understand if you'd prefer to get it working. And I don't mean to be unkind. Just, for me, this prompted the choice to move beyond EAX and start using sound that was built for Vista and Win 7 and leave "old" hybrid stuff behind.
To be frank, I want the best sound and that's why I bought 5.1 speakers...can u guys tell me as to which sound card would give me the EAX kind of output....the "sound blaster Audigy Advanced MB" was giving awesome sound....i would be grateful to that person who helps me in restoring my previous sound quality.
This "IDT High Defination Audio Codec" is not giving me that sound quality...my previous codec was from SigmaTel and with that I used the "sound blaster" software...is there any such combination with "IDT" that will give me the same output??
Please let me know.
