The Sound Blaster Titanium HD comes in quite a small black box with the board itself being the feature in the centre and a little bit of silver writing to make things a bit fancy. Well, not really; to be honest we think such a high end board should be in a nicer box. It's just sort of good to be able to get that feeling as you inspect something for the first time that it is really something special, unlike all others of its kind perhaps.

Moving onto the package itself and it's not a bad one. A driver disc takes care of that side of things and a generous selection of cables are also on offer. Namely, there is the inclusion of two optical cables which is a TweakTown first; we have never seen such thoughtfulness in cabling before.

 

Also of note is the offer of a free copy of PowerDVD for download, which is a nice touch. Hopefully it's not a 'limited' version. Unfortunately we did not have time to download and follow up on it. It's interesting that there never seems to be any bloatware with sound cards these days (free and limited games etc), but it's a good thing as long as it keeps prices down.

 

Not a bad overall package, though, in terms of what's inside. It's just a bit light on for material choice and design art work, if you're looking for that sort of thing.
