Originally posted by guidryp I recently did a sweep test and I can easily hear past 20k (I don't have to turn up the volume or anything).
Originally posted by NeoRenegade I seriously doubt it. Your equipment is probably not all that good and you're just hearing harmonics around 18kHz when the tone is any higher because the equipment can't play any higher frequencies.Are you sure about yours? Sorry if you are.

Originally posted by guidryp Thanks for the thread. I was able to find the neat little tone generator in them:http://www.marchandelec.com/fg.htmAt work on a DELL with built in sound and running through HK speakers to my phones. The cutoff is around 15.5KHz.I did notice something odd in the ff123 sweep. Kind of like another superimposed sweep. Just looking at the Winamp spectrum analyzer it looked like the sweep was always covering a range of freqs.Hopefully this tone gen will be less likely to produce harmonics or alaising error with the single pure tone.Peter
Originally posted by JonPike Check the "How high can you hear" thread on this board..This came up, and apparently you can get soundcard generated aliasing on very high freqencies, that's probably what your hearing. Possibly the sound program ff123 used might have generated some distortion as well..I used Cool Edit 2000 to make a longer one for more accuracy, and found similar noises, but: 1. Bringing the sound level from 0db to -3db reduced them a lot, 2. Changing from 44.1Khz sample rate to 48Khz made them completely inaudible. This on a SB Audigy card.
Originally posted by tubenut Unfortunately, I can't decide whether to order a Turtle Beach Santa Cruz or ignore the problem and shop for better speakers for my mini-stereo...
Originally posted by fewtch Think twice about the Santa Cruz. The drivers are the most unstable I've ever seen for a sound card... sound quality is good, but the drivers need work IMHO. The 'control panel' will crash Windows if you change settings while sound is playing. I bought the card yesterday, and am probably going to return it tomorrow.There are some reviews on the Web pointing this out, try searching Google for "Turtle Beach Santa Cruz Review" (no quotes).

does the Santa Cruz have the same high-frequency aliasing problems as the SB Live when resampling 44.1khz audio?
