GASource, een nieuw onderdeel van Gamer's Alliance, heeft een review van de Diamond MX300. De first impressions:
WOW!!! I hooked 4 speakers up and used the flying helicopter demo that is part of the card's drivers and it sounded real. I felt like I had a helicopter circling around my head. I then decided to try a few games. I loaded Recoil first, and it's hard to truly pass along the feeling of hearing seagulls circling above you with rapid-fire machine guns, plasma weapons, and missiles going off all around you. In Half-Life the sound effects were almost disturbing... I felt so immersed in the game that I began to get scared at the little sounds I heard behind me. The difference in the way that echoes sounded-- depending on the room's wall and floor surfaces -- was fantastic. Unreal was also very good, especially the background music. Each of the instruments were seemingly suspended in space around me in different locations. Jedi Knight (which I bought when it came out largely because of the Star Wars authentic sound effects) was spectacular. Descent 3? Words almost can't describe it.
