Will this mod work on an OEM (non-low profile version) XtremeGamer?

so what do you recomend me? aside the Auzen X-fi... thats expensive.. Something that is good for gaming and music. list a few (in rank if u know some ) thanks
post #893 of 979
Yeah, I'd recommend the Auzen Prelude. Sounds on par with a modded XtremeMusic, and costs about the same as an XtremeMusic + parts.

I'm pretty sure it will, given the use of similar board layouts and the same opamp package size. However, the last time I checked, the 2200uF 16V Black Gate is out of production so they may be hard to find.

I hate to be the one beating around on a dead horse but this thread caught my attention when I was googling information on tweaking my X-Fi. After reading pages and pages of posts here, I figured I'd post a question or 2. First off, soloz, have you managed to find a way of modding the low profile XtremeGamer? I picked one up for the sweet price of 50 bucks the other day and figured it was worth the cost considering it replaced my onboard Realtek sound.
So, the Azune Prelude puts out the same SQ as a modded X-Fi?

Hi there, does anyone know which OPAMP is guilty of the output for the center speaker for a 5.1 channel speaker output? I am using the creative x-fi elite pro SB0550.

I've modded all the OP amps to the LM4562 and realised that the center speaker now is really soft. Almost non-existent.

Can anyone point out the op amp that drives the center output? Is it the center of the 3 op amps that are in line with each other? I know it's one of the 3 because they are the surround amps. Just have no idea which. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I have an Auzentech HTHD, is there any good mods that i could do for sound quality or is it already good enough?

Of the three in line opamps, one does RL/RR, one does SL/SR and one does Sub/Ctr. I would imagine they are placed in order of their relative positions on the backplate. But I'm not 100% sure.

It is pretty good from the start but you could probably swap the Front L/R opamp for something a bit better if you really think it's necessary. Any other mods will be fairly involved and may not yield very much, if any, improvement.
