GA-Source heeft een review van de Terratec SoundSystem DMX geluidskaart op de site geparkeerd. De DMX is de eerste geluidskaart met zowel een optische als coaxiale S/PDIF uitgang. Verder wordt-ie geleverd met quad speaker support en om de soep helemaal gaar te brengen heeft-ie ook nog eens ondersteuning voor alle populaire 3D Audio API's: DirectSound3D, EAX, A3D en Sensaura!
At present, Sensaura licensees supply over 65 per cent of all soundcard and PC motherboard audio chips worldwide. Sensaura licensees currently include Yamaha, ESS Technology and Cirrus Logic. The MultiDrive is meant for handling 4 speaker sound, and MacroFX does special handling for the sounds of objects as they pass within a certain distance from the user (near-field proximity effects). I had found that the Yamaha Waveforce 192 that I reviewed a while back gave better 2 speaker performance for gaming than the competitive cards due to Sensaura's HRTF (Head Response Transfer Functions). The pity was that with its awesome 2 speaker 3D effects, and spectacular wavetable performance, it still didn't support 4 speakers.
The DMX sounded better than any of the other cards that I have used in a 4 speaker setup for gaming. In the Creative Labs Unreal EAX levels, the DMX is fantastic. The razorjack room makes you want to jump, dodging the flying razors. And one thing that really amazed me was that for the FIRST time, I got some amount of height feeling from the sounds. Not in all areas, or in all games, but in some. In all the games I tested, I was definitely thrilled with its performance. This area brought to light the only downside I really found in my entire DMX testing experience.
