4-bar plug works like a 3-bar plug for the X-Fi Soundblaster ;)

  1. Hello,

    Today I bought an extra video/audio cable for the X-Fi Soundblaster <->
    Denon AVR 1909 Receiver to resolve a remaining cabling issue...

    Today I also connected it... at first I was worried that I bought the wrong
    cable... but then I took a closer look and I noticed it probably doesn't
    matter if it's a 3-bar or a 4-bar plug !

    And I was right/correct ! It doesn't matter... the X-Fi Soundblaster accepts
    a 4-bar plug in it's 3-bar output hole ! And it will play sound through the
    left/right speakers just fine ! Me glad about that... because it was one
    fricking expensive cable ! 13 bucks ! just for a cable ! Gjez ! ;)

    The denon receiver and x-fi soundblaster now only have 1 un-used output
    plug... which makes me feel a bit better ?!? ;) Hmmm but not really... maybe
    the previous situation was actually better...

    Because now the output plug is touching the wood... and there is an actual
    un-used input going into my pc... so who knows.. maybe electricity could get
    in there... but I think not... I hope not... I wanna get rid of messie
    cables... so I think this ultimately a little bit better solution... but
    maybe also a little bit more risky ?!

    Well anyway I took some pictures of the new situation and added them to my
    skydrive for you people to enjoy or horror at ;) :)

    It looks nice... but is it really ? Looks can be deceiving... oh well...
    Scratch one messy cable ! ;) :)


    P.S.: If my computer does blow up because of the additional RCA output plug
    I will let you guys know for sure ! ;) :) As usual ! LOL =D

  2. Actually the cable plug slid off the wooden table... and is now hanging in
    the air ! ;) :)

    That must have been the sound I heard... I was like wtf was that... was that
    my X-Fi crackling ? LOL.

    But nope... it was the cable plug falling down... it's ok... I like it the
    way it is now... it's hanging in the air... should be good.

    I am not gonna take a new picture of it... just imagine it ! LOL.

    Skybuck ;) =D
