There was absolutely nothing wrong with the SBZ. It was a fine sound card. And that is having one in the same rig as a D2X and a Tit HD. Hell, even the Recon 3D aboard my old Aliewnare board was pretty damn good.

I got a refund on the ZX around the same day I bought it, Not a good card compared to the likes of the STXII, This AE-5 or heck even the older Sound Blaster X-Fi Titanium fatal1ty Edition.

This areas very subjective though

Speaking of sound, I got tired of my Steelseries Siberia V2 headset with its stupid, heavy ass cables dragging everywhere, so I grabbed myself a pair of AKG K52's. Not the best headphones out there, but my budget was only €30 and I got these for €27, so no complaints.

Technically the card could not be faulted (tests are done using recording equipment, it can't put stuff there that simply isn't). But yes it is subjective. Gawd, when I used to switch between my Tit HD and D2X the difference was night and day ! Tit HD has a much, much better mid range and treble. By miles. But the D2X sounds more solid and goes down low much better. The Z for me combined the best of both. Some people claimed it was too bass heavy but again subjective and all completely depends on which headphones you are using.

The Tit HD was the clear winner on clarity for me though, which is why it is now stuffed up the surround rig's jacksie. It sounds incredible through my Scandyna stuff.

My Blu-ray hall is in:



My collection updated. I have no idea what I'm going to do when I fill the shelf up.

Noice ! last night I fixed the issue I was having with my Madcatz M.O.J.O and got it streaming from my NAS. I was sooooo happy

I bought a set of Corsair K70 keys for nothing. Well, I did give the guy the postage of £3 odd and a fiver for a pint. But, that should sort out the £20 mech board I bought. The keys on it are light, flimsy and shiny. So whenever you hit a key by touch you get forced onto the edge of the one next to it. Hateful thing tbh surprised it's still in one piece.

I do have the extended editions on DVD, but it's not been easy finding the extended editions on Blu-ray for a reasonable price at the right time, oddly enough. But yeah, they definitely need to be added to the collection at some point.

That's weird. My two Gigabyte G-1 Gaming RX-480s were great in Crossfire.
Same with my two ASUS Strix RX-580s.

I got rid of all of them to get a pair of GTX-1070s and a pair of GTX-1080FE cards.
I don't regret it, but the RX cards were pretty good.

Damn!
Nice bunch of BluRay movies.
I'd love to own more than half of them!

Thanks! I started collecting Blu-rays specifically in 2012 so it's five years worth. I think the first Blu-ray I bought was the Clint Eastwood collection (it has the Dollars Trilogy in it and Hang 'Em High). I rewatched them the other day.
