Surround Sound, How is it?
« on: August 17, 2008, 01:39:34 am »
Well supposedly it has 5.1 surround, anybody car to comment on the quality of it.

I currently am running 4 speakers in stereo but am considering a surround sound setup for this game.

I can verify that it works.  Although the exterior sounds seem very quiet.  Volume sliders are on my wish list for this Sim.

I have my X-Fi extreme gamer card and a Logitech THX surround system and I can say that the sounds are amazing. Yeah I might have to turn it up a bit more but Jeez is it nice. I have the 5.1 and I can hear everything perfectly and they have done an outstanding job on all of it. Maybe they will update it a bit on the next release but its fine for me. Plus getting to turn it way up being in the basement is great!!

I got a 5.1 surround set up in my race set up and bass shakers under my seat... gotta say i think the sound needs improving. Ok the engine sounds great... but where is the rumble when you hit the kerbs.  :?:

I think the sounds are like the graphics. Definitely not great or special, but does its job.
