      Aureal have allways been the best when it comes to producing top quality 3D positional Audio. This card with the Votex 2 chipset id no different. Even with a 2 speaker set up the Aureal Vortex 2 can produce sounds that appear to be coming from anywhere in 3D space. In other words in you were playing Quake III online, and someone was shooting at you from directly above. This Aureal card can make the sound appear as if its coming from above your head. All this is done using advanced reverb effects. The feeling is even better if you do have the surround sound capabilty cause this card supports 2,4 and dolby 5.1 speaker set ups. With 4 or more speaker the positioning is absolute. The demo's that come with Aureal's cards show exactly what they can do. For example you have a helicopter circling you. If you close your eyes the experience couldnt be any closer to the real thing. There are other demo's as well that prove what advanced technology this realy is. If your a music lover though you should opt for the Sound Blaster Live. Gamers should definatley get one of the Aureals cards, mixture of both? well if thats the case then either card is good for that, I'll leave that one up to you

        I was well impressed by the effect of A3D, which is one of the main techniques of producing three dimensional sound via a sound card for games and what not. It delivers and effect which is significantly deeper than stereo. In games like Half-Life the feeling of something behind is almost eery. Certainly worth having, considering when cheap cards of this type can be acquired for under £40 these days. Also, they are meant to alleviate some of the workload form the CPU and that's no bad thing. I recommend that anyone interested should go and buy as they add well the entertainment for their cost.
