When I first got the Sound Blaster Audigy2 Platinum eX I instantly became tongue tied. Nothing because of the absurdly big name, but what in the heck do I do with this particular? Why would anyone require a fully outer break-out box? The Audigy Drive, and entire similar to products, are fairly close to perfection for simple of utilize and link. And they commonly audio fairly good, also. So I imagine: Tear it apart! No, no, that would void the warranty. Wait a minute, it is a Press Kit … there ain't no warranty.

Main between them are that the inner of a computer case, with its myriad fans, disk drives, expansion cards, central processing units, link busses, and not to mention cold cathodes, create an instead electrically noisy environment for well clean sound. Too moving a little box around is much simpler than moving your entire computer around to create sound links. And you surely do not have to worry about showing somebody your butt crack through climbing below your desk to plug something in. But then, I tend to do that only for fun.
