I didnt expect to get anything from you either cause you only seem to come off as money hungry individual.
If you read the stipulations you technically are not supposed to do what you propose.

If you follow my posts at all you would see that I just 'gave' away a headphone and cable for basically the cost of the cable.

I do not wish to argue with you nor to create a scene. It is better for me to sit on a product than to give it away and as such I shall. I only offered you the op-amp to try to help and if you look at my previous post the single op-amp I offered is cheaper than if you were to buy a single op-amp from digi-key. My previous post was meant only to justify my reason for asking the price I did.

You've got 4 posts and if the 10 bucks is nothing to you why are you complaining about it? I wouldn't give you a free chip if my life depended on it. Many wouldn't and its not because they are " money hungry individuals. "

THE X-FI CARDS THAT SHOULD BE AVOIDED:
-X-Fi XtremeAudio
-X-Fi XtremeGamer
-Any of the low-profile X-Fis

THE GOOD ONES TO GET:
X-Fi Elite Pro
X-Fi Fatal1ty FPS
X-Fi Platinum
X-Fi XtremeMusic (best value)

ONES I AM UNSURE about:
X-Fi XtremeGamer Fatal1ty Professional Series
This is one of the new ones. The other new ones are the XtremeAudio and XtremeGamer, which are both low profile. The low profile models do not support digital out (not easily, anyway), and they use lower quality components. The XtremeGamer Fatal1ty Professional Series is also new, but it is not low profile. If it is based on the same model as the good ones, it would be OK, but I don't know if it is. So it would be best to just avoid it.
Anyways I don't plan on modding or anything I might one day but I was planning on getting either the XtremeGamer or XtremeGamer Fatal1ty Pro ..

Should I stay away from the XtremeGamer then? I've always used onboard sound and am now.. Realtek HD bs.. ALC889A So I am wondering wich should I get and from what I understand I should technically see a considerable difference even on the lesser X-Fi's? I have HD555's and I'm shooting for the extra bass clearer sounds and Virtual surround..

Maybe you should read what he said before talking crap about it? Soloz had to buy them, I don't see why he would pay for something, then ship to to a random stranger for free. He's not even asking for more then it would cost him.

BTW I had a question about the shielding paper. My brother says it would need to be grounded to work properally. Is it supposed to be touching a ground line on the card or something?

yeah you should have the ERS paper grounded.


The way I do this is to use thin foam that you get from a craft store as insulation between the card and the ERS, then I cut out a small square on the corner where the small bolt that holds the plate to the card. The ERS will touch the bold and thus be grounded to the case.

Yes, stay away from the low-profile ones. The quality of it is crap, compared to the original X-Fi...and will an admin delete these posts please? We don't need to start an argument on people's morals or motives. Screw off jacka$$es.

Hey

Has anyone tried the TI shield for Percy? I bought it but I didn't install it yet. It has 2 layers of coper and a fero magnetic layer in between. He sais: "TI Shield is
effective from below 10Hz up to 10GHz".

the audio is a totally different card than the other x-fi's and frankly only has the x-fi name as a selling gimmick. I'm not sure if you could mod it or not.

In my opinion, just buy the Creative elite pro and mod it with the best caps & preamps and I garantie that you'll not be sorry for spending money on a hi-end music card. That is if you have some hi-end speakers and a good amplifier or very good headfones.
