On-line comparison and selection services for Creative Sound BlasterX AE-5 Line Out

The automatic selection of the optimal AMP models from Creative Sound BlasterX AE-5 Line Out.
from the measured power parameters of the amplifying part and the measured parameters of the headphones for different purpose of use.


Close

Measurements of Creative Sound BlasterX AE-5 Line Out were carried out by Roman Kuznetsov on the hardware-software complex RAA.

The Creative Sound BlasterX AE-5 Line Out test was conducted as a black box test, without regard to cost and prestige. This is the basic principle for making measurements, measurement reports and developing tests in RAA.

I believe that it is important to do not make an absolute assessment of the device, but an aggregate assessment when working together with a headphones and taking into account external factors. This allows you to effectively reveal the potential of the entire set of devices or to make a more optimal choice of components.

Комментарий к профессиональному отчету Creative Sound BlasterX AE-5 Line Out
Учитывая высокий уровень примененного цапа от именитой фирмы Сейбр, и весьма скромные "достижения" по уровню джиттера и искажений на линейном выходе, фирма производитель явно не доработала. Мне кажется что показатели должны быть минимум на порядок выше!

Учитывая высокий уровень примененного цапа от именитой фирмы Сейбр, и весьма скромные "достижения" по уровню джиттера и искажений на линейном выходе, фирма производитель явно не доработала. Мне кажется что показатели должны быть минимум на порядок выше!


Используется мобильная версия K2M и по этой причине искажения здесь как раз очень низкие для ее возможностей. Джиттер мог бы быть ниже, тут недоработали. Но справедливости ради, тут очень высокое соотношение сигнал/шум и хорошо видно джиттер низкого уровня, который не было бы видно в в менее хорошей реализации.
