3D Alpha heeft een review in elkaar gezet van de Turtle Beach Montego II Quadzilla soundcard, een Aureal Vortex 2 kaartje met 4-speaker support. Hier een hap uit de review.
Now it's time for Turtle Beach to put their money where their mouth is. Is this card all it claims to be? Well, with two receivers and a total of nine speakers, I intended to find out. I attached my Aiwa Mini-home theatre to the green output on the back of the Montego II for the frontal sound, and then connected my Sony receiver to the back of the breakout bracket for the rear sound. Now it was time for this card to do it's magic. I did the initial tests, you know. Played some MP3s, and messed around with the mixer on the AudioStation32 program included to get the audio sounding crisp and clear.
I decided I would then do a few other things. I launched up a game of Quake, and I was quite surprised: Perhaps it's just my young ears, but I was surprised at how much more crisp and clear this card was in comparison to my SBLive! Value card! The environment around me seemed to be right with me. I may have to attribute this to messing with the equalizer enough on this thing, but it was still a pleasant surprise.
Despite that, this card doesn't separate channels quite as well as it could. It didn't seem to have as distinct surround sound qualities such as other sound cards have. I wasn't disappointed though. The clarity of the sound more than makes up for the surround. One would say that my ears are clearly screwed up anyways.
