    Were there any changes comparing to 5.0, except tweaks? 5.0 is not very stable for me.

    Should I be completely honest, I do not notice much difference in sound, but I trust that your drivers are better than Creative's (orginal) ;)

    So thanks for that ;)

    Hello there,
    First of all thank you for your existing
    Second, i have a BIG problem with my x-fi xtreme music. In Windows 7 x64 on intel platform the sound don't want to work at all. It make a noise in ENTERTAINMENT MODE like fffffsssssss (old tv without signal). I tryed every mode possible (except throwing it away) like uninstalling everything and instaling Windows again.

    WHAT U LEARN ME TO DO?

    Thanks in advance

    I got the same problem with you. I used xfi surround 5.1 before, and everything goes normal, no buzz sound even on high volume.
    well, the problem is since i changed to xtrememusic. I guess it's because my PSU, it's only 500w. I read on other site, there's someone said he changed his PSU to a higher one, then there's no buzz sound anymore.
    I didn't change my PSU yet cause I have no money :rofl:
    To fix the buzz sound, I turn the volume of my amp a lil bit lower :D

    His problem is not in nosy sound, his problem that sound card doesn't produce sound at all (except noise).
    I think his sound card is physically damaged, but the same result could be achieved if there are multiple sound devices in the system, and creative's sound card is not set as default device in windows Control Panel (and in music players)

    Yes is true i don't have any sound. When i select Entertainment mode (only in this mode) then it start to make a default (cannot stop that sound even if i press MUTE button).
    I deactivated from bios my onboard sound and uninstall drivers of it.

    But my card is perfect in Windows XP (perfect, incredible).

    Re: PAX PCI XFI All OS V5.25 Test thread.

    Hello there Mr. Robert McClelland. My name's Paulo and I'm from Brazil.

    It's been more than 2 years I've been downloading your drivers rather than Creative's own in the hope I get the best possible audio for my XtremeMusic card. Now, I saw this thread created by you and it got me wondering: what, at last, are the tweaks this guy often talks about?

    You know, quality is relative to one person's likes. From a certein point of view one could be talking about bit-perfectness. From another point of view, it could be all about improving the original sound adding to it more realism, mightiness, definition, etc..

    I don't care much about bit-perfectness but I care about one's modifications to the original sound because I don't want it to be distorted in anyway.

    I'd love to help you testing this release, but, first, can you better explain what sort of optimizations you've always talked about? Is it all about EQ's? There's nothing on the Internet that explains in details your tweaks. It's just a blinded trust because it's really impossible to compare quality from different releases due to the time it talkes to update drivers. Besides, fair and real comparison requires top quality equipment which most of us don't have. One's opinion is quite subjective at all and does not represent real world true results.

    I'll appretiate a reply from you as soon as you can.

    Also, if it isn't too much to ask further, can you tell me if Creative's X-Fi cards are really capable of playing pure 192KHz audio in stereo mode? I'm asking this because I've observed (and tested digitally) it pretty much resamples everything to 48KHz, except in Audio Creation mode where you can tell it what sample rate to work at, up to 96KHz.

    Thank you very much in advance.

    Peace!!!
