The next generation Sound Blaster card - the Sound Blaster Recon3D - is powered by Sound Core3D and heralds a new age in 3D gaming audio and online voice communication. Hardware-accelerated SBX Pro Studio audio technologies deliver unsurpassed audio playback quality, while the innovative CrystalVoice processing lets you communicate with crystal clear vocal fidelity in your multiplayer games, online chats and video conferencing.
Engineered for low power consumption and high performance, the Sound Core3D processor is Creative's first sound and voice processor to integrate a quad-core high-performance digital signal processor (DSP) and high-quality converters onto a single chip.
The Recon 3D worked as advertised and worked very well. If you find yourself constantly listening to lossy audio tracks, this sound card could be a very worthwhile investment especially if you've got a higher quality pair of headphones and the popping, hissing, and crackling is driving you insane.
