Glad it's working well, thank you for thanking us! The DAC (and amp) built-in to the Omni is a bit better than the one in that base station DreMag is using, though his works processing surround from consoles. Conquerator2 (spelling?) uses the same base station as him.
I usually turn off crystalizer and other special effects besides surround, but in the end they are tweaks to suit your preference, so season to your taste. For example, "I" like to use the dialogue booster
For the mic issue, could be a bunch of things, I recommend asking tech support.
Think you can explain a bit more (than what Creative wrote) in regards to the SBX Pro Studio for games? I am trying to figure the difference in-game with the SBX Pro Studio "Surround", "Crystallizer", "bass settings", etc.
Its hard in-game to edit these settings and then differentiate. For Example when I did there First Person Shooter mode, the sound of the gun seemed to be low. Thought maybe some other people may have tested it out. Regardless it sounds MILES better than what I heard before.
Do you like the Diaogue Booster mainly for its ability to play the sounds of people talking or more for hearing? What other effects do you turn off?
BTW, I have an old Audigy Platinum EX I doubt these two would work with my setup, what do you think I could sell the unit for?
P.S. what do you use for music?
P.P.S. for 2.1 surround (speakers) should I set up the Speaker/Headphone area as stereo or 5.1? Not sure what would be better for my seutp
