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!

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.
