Applying the FPS2000 for use in games proved quite simple. I found that using 3D positional sound such as Aureal A3D or Creative EAX, the speakers worked quite well. Sound is as usual, crisp and clean, with no over-bass or over-tweetering as I call it. The sound sounded just fantastic. It was quite clear that the rear speakers were working well, and it sounded a bit better if you set the rear speakers a hair louder than the fronts, since it seemed to even out the sound levels. Playing CDs and MP3s in Windows sounded like they would in a default car audio system with a decent subwoofer.
We tried the Sound Blaster Live! DIN connector and didn't really see any performance or sound quality level increase. They claim it should be cleaner and crisper, however if it was, I couldn't really tell. Either way, it's an option you should use if you have a Live! sound card. Owners of the Diamond MX300 or other new high quality sound cards that Creative Labs doesn't make will find the sound to be just as clean and crisp. The sound isn't something we can emphasize in a review as much as we'd like to since you'll have to hear it to see it.
