Para muitas pessoas, existe som ou nenhum som, a qualidade realmente não entra nela. Para outros, regra de especificação e direito de se gabar: taxas de bits, frequências de amostragem, largura de banda, manuseio de energia. Para muitos, um simples conjunto de alto-falantes do PC fará muito bem, especialmente se houver 6 ou mais deles (mais é melhor, direito?) Mas o que você faz se você quer um som incrível do seu computador? O que você faz se for um audiófilo com orçamento limitado? E se você jogar e quiser som surround, mas tocar música no mesmo sistema? Existem muitas opções e isso pode ficar muito caro e complexo, mas não precisa.
Some sound-cards won’t give you a Dolby Digital (never mind DTS) signal and mine was only on the cusp of wanting to do this. Being the cheapest full-chipset X‑fi available when I bought it, I had to pay Creative a few pounds to enable Dolby Digital Live support. I’m glad I did as it works very nicely. DVDs, large file size movies, Call of Duty and many other games all work very well with this set-up. You just have to accept that you won’t be able to digitally stream TrueHD or other formats that were developed way after the Yamaha was born. To be honest, though, with the newer formats (SACD, DVD -UMA, TrueHD, DTS-MA…) it’s easy to surpass those expectations of excellent sound with the old ones — DD 5.1, DTS, Redbook CD audio etc. — if your playback system offers sufficient fidelity. I have heard at least one 1990s model CD player that can surpass several thousand pound’s worth of SACD hardware, when playing equally excellent layers of the same hybrid Linn SACD/CD. I will say no more.
For the h******e amongst you, upgrades are more than possible. Re-clocking, improved voltage regulation, better capacitors and op-amps will make the most of the DSP-E800, though I have to say it sounds great as standard. In terms of 2‑channel music it’s roughly on a par with two or three hundred pounds’ worth of CD player when fed from something like a Soundblaster X‑Fi, though I’m quite sure most digital sources will work similarly well. Compared to the X‑fi’s analogue outputs it is slightly ahead — both being in standard, unmolested trim — giving a pleasingly warm and concise account of your source material, albeit with slightly constrained dynamics.
So why the review of what in computing terms seems as old as the hills? Well it’s excellent and every time I’ve looked they’re available on Ebay, some going for as little as £50.
