Sound Blaster Audigy 2 ZS Platinum Pro

    Are there any newsgroups dedicated to the Audigy 2 ZS Platinum Pro? Or any
    real good community sites for this sound card?

    I seem to be having troubles "sounding correctly" (I.e., HALO - all the
    ambience EAX sounds are there..but some sounds are missing...like when you
    ride a vehicle..you only hear it running when you look left or right.)

    I have the Logitech Z680 speakers...so I am expecting some high quality
    gaming sounds. The DVD Audio sounds incredbile - but with so many volume
    controls, remote controls, special FX from the sound card, speakers, and
    Windows XP - hard telling if I ahve everything tweaked appropriately.

    Any help or direction would be appreciated!

    Is everything plugged in correctly? You should run the EAX setup console and
    test that you get sound from all speakers. Also, visit soundblaster.com and
    go update your drivers if you haven't done that already.
    What I do is I set the volume levels from the computer to maximum, boost the
    treble a bit using the equalizer (since the Z680s don't have a dedicated
    tweeter on the satellites) and set the volume on the rear speakers to
    maximum in the Z680's control unit. That makes the surround sound stand out
    a bit more. And, I try not to set the bass above 60% or else everything in
    the room starts shaking. :)
