Een late MX300 review bij Adrenaline Vault. Op de message boards duurt de MX300 vs SBLive battle onverminderd voort en uiteraard kon ook in de review van AVault een vergelijking niet uitblijven:
While A3D 1.0 on earlier Vortex 1 boards worked its magic best on a set of headphones, 3D positional audio is much improved on the Monster Sound MX300 with the A3D 2.0 improvements, especially with a four speaker configuration. The Monster Sound MX300 matched Creative Labs' Sound Blaster Live! game-for-game with a four speaker setup, such as the PCWorks FourPointSurround. In addition, the real-time environmental effects in games such as Half-Life seemed a little less exaggerated with the Monster Sound MX300. The difference is somewhat subtle, similar to over blurring of 3Dfx cards doing bilinear filtering; you don't notice it until you see it done differently on a RIVA TNT board.
