Asking if it's the top dog, yes.

Especially for gaming?

I'd say they sound AMAZING... I mean I am listening to some MP3s and if feels like 160's sound like 128's and 128's sound like GARBAGE!

That is a good thing of course, meaning you hear things so much clearer... and what makes 128's sound bad is your new higher standards... so if the processing is top notch... then I'd say modded X-Fi's may very well be the undisputed champion of the consumer world... and I'd call then Pro-Sumer now... since these are more than just gamer cards now...

I have no clue if they do have the best processing or not though...

Hi I have the X-Fi Xtreme Music Card, my name is Elliott and I repair and upgrade the Klipsch 4.1 and 5.1 ProMedia systems all the time so I'm used to some good audio sound systems, I saw this mod or upgrade for the X-Fi and was very interested so I replaced the 4 regular pre-amp IC's with the LM4562MA and the audio caps also the power cap with a higher voltage one I did not do the shielding because I never had any problems with noise to begin with even though I have an Ati 1800XL next to this card, and for those of you who are wondering if it sounds better and if it does, how much exactly? Is it worth the trouble? The answer is YES, in my opinion it sounds about 20-30 % better... it sounds cleaner and a bit louder specially on regular audio CDs and MP3s, I can also tell the sound improvement on the DVDs with 5.1 Audio like The Eagles , Eric Clapton etc...I can now hear music notes I never knew existed on my CD's and DVD's If you can do this mod I highly recommend it, but make sure you can solder surface mount IC's it took me like 3 hrs to do the project but I have 16 years experience in electronics and had all the tools and parts in hand. I would also like to thank whoever was responsible for the idea on this mod or improvement, I was already thinking on buying the HT Omega Claro or the X-Meridian but after the mods, no thanks he he...
Cheers,
Elliott

I guess if anyone was going to look for someone with "16 years of experience" they could ask you to do this mod for them... hummm...

ooooooor they could go to Soloz2 who is responsible for the mod AND told us about it AND did several of them before AND though I had a miscommunication with hin I STILL recommend him...

It only seems right to give the business to the guy who made this possible...

just a few of the thoughts in my head... so I am just... you know... "re-posting them"

Thanks USlatin! whom, btw is a great guy.

re: keikosid

The Elite Pro will sound better than the other X-fi cards because it has a better DAC. The DAC in the rest of the X-fi's is good (except for XtremeAudio) and when modded can compete with dedicated recording and audiophile sound cards costing much more, so a modded Elite Pro should best most other cards out there for SQ, and definately be the best gaming card period.

Oh, I don't want to take away business from soloz2 especially if it was his idea, and if its going to take 3 hrs to do this mod, believe me I will not do it for anyone because I can make $240 doing amp repairs or upgrades in 3 hrs..my intention is just to inform everyone about this great mod, because I really like great sounds, by the way my audio setup on my PC will put to shame my other sound systems including my cars and my living room . And make sure you have some nice speakers like the Klipsch Promedia 5.1 or the Creative Gigaworks S750 to take advantage of the nice clean sound that comes out of the new and improved X-Fi, all the other PC speakers just wont do any justice..
