SRS Audio Sandbox
Full user review
"SRS Audio Sandbox 188.8.131.52 (Vista)"
Excellent sound reproduction
Uses all of my speakers in 5.1
Undeniable Improvement in sound output
Configuration Option not too clear
I personally look at as many reviews as possible on a product before I make my decision to try or buy. I haven't written many reviews on products but I feel this one deserved my attention.
SRS has turned my rather dull DVD experience into something new and exciting. Sound comes from everywhere and keeps me totally engrossed as I have learned to hear and experience sounds that were not there before.
It livens whatever you use it on including You Tube Videos! I have a favorite video of Lance Armstrong that I use for motivation and was absolutely blown away after having seen it for the "hundredth" time. The sounds were clear and ambient and I just can't explain it. You really need to hear it for yourself.
There is a configuration screen that shows up with "check marks" for your current speaker setup. When I ran it, it said my 5.1 was not configured correctly and the AUTOFIX button was greyed out? It was only after I closed my DVD program that I found out the answer to the problem. I opened my "sound devices" windows and I now had (2) speaker icons. The 2nd icon actually had SRS as the device and all I had to do then was to configure it as a 5.1 system.
The selection items for playback of either music or movies is all you need. Short and Sweet. Just select what you want and you're off and running.
Don't believe the (Auto Adjustment) is necessarily the best pick for your sound system. Just click on it to turn it off and you have about 4 choices to select from. I personally use the WOW HD selection and if anyone remembers the old BASF advertisement where someone sitting in a chair is holding on for dear life, while their scarf and hair are being blow backwards...well, that's the best way for me tell you just how huge the difference can be!!!
I highly recommend this program to anyone that wants better sound from their computer sound system(s).
