SRS Audio Sandbox is a sound enhancement tool. SRS is famous for specializing in audio enhancement.
SRS WOW effects are already included with Windows Media Player. We turn them on for some bass boost. The sound enhancement doesn’t cause much distortion in the quality of output. Now, you can install the program if you need more. The program works as a virtual driver for a separate sound card. Even if you have a 2.0 speaker, the virtual sound card can mimic a 5.1 system. The audio output is routed through this virtual hardware to the output device of your choice. The audio stream is modified according to the selected settings.
The program is small, and quietly sits in the system tray. Options include surround sound, 360 degree headphone, etc. We can define the frequency cut-off level, dialog clarity level, SRS TruBass, etc. Default settings for Laptop Speakers, 5.1, Headphones, are included.
There are some problems with selecting the default hardware. Some devices may not be in the list of output devices. Also, the default sound settings in Windows 7 may not work. Always install the demo software before buying.
