    quick question veetid: what sound setup do you have in your car?? i notice CF is optimized for the M10000 onboard sound card (well, the mixer at least). i currently use the USB creative audigy nx 2. the sound quality is great with the 5.1 surround upmix and bass redirection, but it uses soooo much CPU. i'm basically looking for other options - maybe using the onboard 5.1 soundcard with an external decoder... any suggestions?!

    I'm using the m10K 's sound card and I think the quality is fine, especially if you fit ground loop isolators to the output just before the amp.

    Oh! I think that is what i need...

    I have an uggly "ZZiiiiiii" sound throught my amplifier...When I pause music, I can ear my engine function of my RPM, sounds like a turbo

    And I have a very ugly sound with CF when I am at 100% of volume. When I have loud "bass", the sound seems to sature and "scratches".

    I thought the music from CF sounded terrible but it turned out to be the normalisation, so now I turned that off it is great again.

    The ground loop isolators will fix this, and make sure you set your amplifier pre-amps to the lowest gain you can which produces an acceptable volume level, as the more you amplify the input signal the more noise you will hear.

    BTW Maplins sells these in the UK, and they are cheap too.

    did anything change in the eq from 1.4 to 1.5?

    for some reason 1.5 does sound cleaner. i haven't checked if normalization is turned on or off, but will do so shortly.

    I gotta say the sound is quite good in CF. But alot of complaints seem to be oc CF in the car, so car speakers and amps make sound totally different comapred to a set of desktop speakers.

    BTW whats this normalization thing and how to I play with it, i'm intrigued either way...

    I was tempted to make a smart-*** reply to your post, but I won't. Do you really think that the people questioning CF's sound quality are comparing the sound quality on their desktops to that in their cars? No, we are people who have used Winamp in our cars for years and noticed a decline in quality when we switched to CF.
