What is actually in my bag – as minimalistic as I can
My quest for reducing the weight on my very poor shoulders and again goes on. I still have a pair of items to get rid of, but in common I am down to the bare minimal (for me).

As constantly I consider to give excellent/relevant specifics in the notes of the pic previously mentioned.

Of program I do realise that this bag appears boring to some of you, of program the younger kinds will find this dull, but hey, it really is my bag and I like it. A whole lot.

Wooww, nice product! I want to share this product!

What customers say about Creative 70SB174000000 Audio BlasterX AE-5 Hi-Resolution PCIe Gaming Seem Card?

  1. [http://www.flickr.com/photos/by_shante] Yes, I absolutely need those to be different and separate. In any case they are separate only in their analog part and it all converges in Evernote.

    My meeting notes have nothing to do among my task lists and or project development, my daily notes are even worse and all over the place, so having this in one analog place will create a problem for me when trying to search the analog version.

    At the end Evernote is like the one Ring: "…one Ring find them… and in the darkness bind them…"

    You can tell I’m a geek.

    This review is from: Creative 70SB174000000 Sound BlasterX AE-5 Hi-Resolution PCIe Gaming Sound Card (Personal Computers)

    Let me preface saying that I’m not a proper audiophile or a sound engineer in any aspect. I just like good sounding music, and can tell the difference between bland and exciting audio.

    My first impressions of this were how nice the card looks in person. Usually cards look pretty minimalist with their PCB exposed, although there are a few that have nice aesthetics. This is the best IMO in that regard. The included equipment is fine, nothing special, and the drivers are automatically installed, with additional resources on their website. You will need to have the additional molex power cable available to plug in to this card to power it. The other connector is for RGB, which is optional and I currently am not using, but is great for those who like lighting up their build. The connections for the front audio connectors are fine, with one caveat (will mention below). The back connections are as expected and seem of high quality (won’t break easily).

    Once the card was set up, the use of the sound blaster connect 2 program was simple enough. One of my favorite features is the easy to use EQ. My current headphones are the Beyerdynamic DT990 Pro, and they are slightly harsh on the high end. I used the EQ to adjust the top end -6db. Now they sound much smoother to me. On top of this, you can save multiple EQ settings for various setups or preferences. The sound blaster effects settings (e.g. surround simulation, crystalizer, bass, vocal and smart volume) all work very well and can be distinctly noticed moving the sliders from 0 to 100. They can individually be tuned and saved for multiple devices as well. One note, if you use the direct headphone or direct stereo output options in the program, the EQ and sound effect enhancements will be bypassed to send the highest quality, unfiltered sound to your device. This is generally for purists who want the best reproduction of recordings with high end equipment. Most people won’t notice the difference on typical listening devices.

    One of the other features that is marketed on this card is the discrete headphone amp, which is great for anyone who wants the features of the DAC/amp without having a separate device to configure on your desk. My headphones sound fine with normal phones powering them, but they never get that loud or dynamic in sound. Plugged into this card, they become incredibly dynamic and can be ear shattering loud while staying clear. The bass alone will rumble your head. However, I’ve found that there is a difference between the front panel connector (typical headphone port) and the rear headphone connector. They both sound great, but the rear connector is better shielded and ends up sounding cleaner (IMO) and louder. This could be because the headphone amp is cleaner coming from the rear connector, but this will require you to plug your cans to the back of your PC which is awkward.

    My desktop speakers are the Klipsch 2.1 setup. They sound pretty good regardless of your PC’s audio processing, but on this card, they sound A LOT better. I can now shake the whole room and the nearby rooms with this tiny setup. I was immediately impressed with the result from this, and I’ve been jamming all my previous tunes to them like it is the first time I’ve heard music. I imagine with better quality speakers and speaker amps, you can really push some quality sound, especially for the price of this card, which is much much lower than mid-tier and upper-tier DAC.

    Some complications from the card:
    -Switching audio outputs from the interface (i.e. switching from headphone to desktop speaker) during audio playback can cause audio to stop playing, and might require a restart of the audio source.
    -I had issues with the rear input connector, although for my mic (antlion mod mic 5.0), I just use the front panel input which works just fine.
    -The input audio is very low for me. I have the input gain maxed out, which makes it pick up my voice at a normal volume.
    – The biggest issue: you will probably start spending more money on better speakers and headphones to really utilize what this card can do for your PC. But, that is what you wanted anyways… right?

    Overall, this is a solid 4.5 with the few issues I have with it, but I bumped it to a 5 on here because it is certainly better than a 4. If you haven’t dived into better audio processing, then this is a great start for the price. You will immediately know what you’ve been missing out on once you get everything set up.

  3. I like your bag and your stuff and all of the notes and note taking stuff. I have a kindle paperwhite and LOVE it. you are really well organized and give me some good ideas.

  4. You have 5 different note taking systems going on here! Is this easier than just sticking with one?

    Great Card , Bad Software, November 5, 2017

    This review is from: Creative 70SB174000000 Sound BlasterX AE-5 Hi-Resolution PCIe Gaming Sound Card (Personal Computers)

    So far the biggest problem is the sound page of the software under acoustic engine The Bass control does not function at all .The surround ,crystalizer ,smart volume and dialog functions as expected .
    Using the sound blaster connect 2 software is problematic at best .There has been 2 incidents so far that the sound stopped working altogether .I did a hard reset of the software .
    This software has no way to save multiple personal preset sound settings. Saving a personal preset for movie ,gaming ,music , is what the software is missing .Do you really expect a gamer to set up his favorite sound settings every time he plays a game or a music lover to set up his favorite music settings every time he wants to hear music ?
    The sound card itself is by far the best one that creative has made so far ,However the software is crappy at best .
    So basically what we are paying for is a great sound card and crappy software . My system : Intel 7700k at stock speed,Asus Maximus IX HERO ( Bio ver 1009 ) , NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 Ti , Sound BlasterX AE-5 , 2 Intel SSD in a Raid 0 Config , 16 gig Crucial Memory .

  6. Same here I prefer day one to evernote…

  7. [http://www.flickr.com/photos/pegbp] [blushing][humbled]Ahhhh, uhhhhh… ahem. Thanks.[/blushing][/humbled]

  8. You are not alone in your geekness.
    I want to love evernote, but I cannot. I refuse to pay $45 a year to read MY notes offline!
    I have a Livescribe pulse. It keep rolling off of the table and I don’t like the flow of the ink. You think for a pen that expensive there would be a better ballpoint.
    When I bought my iPad mini, I got rid of my kindle. I felt like I was carrying too many devices. Now I am not sure if that was a good idea.
    I do have a ridiculous amount of notebooks. I am still searching for the best way for me to converge all of my ramblings into one place. So I understand, I was just curious.

    Maybe great hardware, but software can be a show stopper, April 4, 2018

    Hardware may be outstanding, but software can have show stopping issues with installation. I had a Creative Sound Blaster Recon 3D card … great card … but the Creative Sound BlasterX AE-5 was supposed to be a huge step up. Got the hardware from Amazon, uninstalled the old software, shut the computer down, replaced the old sound card with the AE-5, hooked everything back up, started up the computer. Installed the AE-5 software and … only the front L/R channels had sound.

    Testing showed the rear L/R speakers, C/Sub speakers were getting a signal inside the card, but no output to the amplifier powering the speakers. Creative tech support, after much trouble shooting, decided the card was defective, so I returned it to Amazon and ordered a new one. New card arrived and same problem. After more trouble shooting from Creative tech support, they finally said I should either install the card on another computer (I suppose the intent was to see if the card worked on a different computer) or reformat my hard drive and do a fresh install of all software on my computer. I declined.

    What Creative decided, after my sending them my system info file, is that the old Creative Recon 3D software left bits in the Win10 registry that interfered with the new Creative AE-5 software’s functions. They had no way to clean that up, they stated that editing the registry was fraught with problems and beyond their ability.

    So … word of warning … some folks who wish to use their 5.1 speaker system may encounter problems that Creative tech support cannot fix. If you’re using the AE-5 with earphones or a 2.0 speaker setup, you will probably be OK. If the card you are replacing is of a different brand than Creative, you might be OK. Perhaps some Creative software will more fully uninstall. For lots of folks, this card might work out just great. But it didn’t work for me. And the fault was entirely with the Creative software. Which Creative tech support is incapable of solving, except using ridiculous and unacceptable solutions.

  10. [http://www.flickr.com/photos/by_shante] shant, I had the same issue with Livescribe ink. I bought the spare kit with 5 cartridges (4 blue, 1 red) and the blue ink is FAR BETTER than the black that comes with the pen. I suggest you to take a look.
