3D Soundsurge heeft een review van de Yamaha Waveforce 192 op z'n site geparkeerd. De kaart heeft een digitale S/PDIF interface en biedt naast native ondersteuning voor Sensaura's 3D audio technology ook support voor A3D1.0 en EAX:
A3D 1.x support was also good as illustrated by the included Jedi Knight: Pathways to the Force demo, the Star Wars Episode 1: The Phantom Menace demo, full versions of Battlezone and on Mikaelís machine the full versions of Outlaws and Jedi Knight. Incoming exhibited pops and clicks but its known to do that on sound cards with official A3D support so this was not a big surprise.
Titles with EAX support are a bit different as we were not finding consistent performance across titles. First off, the EAX reverb produced by the Yamaha 192d under any circumstances is not as good as the Sound Blaster Live line of cards. The best EAX performers for this card were Half-Life where it sounded quite good to both of us and Unreal but while my Unreal EAX test worked fine and sounded good, Mikaelís crashed as soon as he started to play. I also found the audio in Unreal to be not nearly as crisp as with the SB Live (with EAX) or the MX300 (without EAX). Using Thief: The Dark Project with the 1.33 patch that enables EAX, I found the EAX pretty good except that it seems to lag behind the odd time. 3D sound was good on the Waveforce, even with EAX enabled.
