Summary: I bought this card to let singers observe there own voice as they listen with headphones and sing with music on a Mic while the cards capability to record there voice with music or without and they can play back and listen to only there RAW Voice if they want and make changes to be a better singer. it has echo and extra audio enhancements with no hum or distortion from speaker outputs added to my 130 watt per channel amp at full volume with no inputs connected.
Summary: I recently upgrade my old PC with new OS and I had a SB LIVE card with a game port that would not function with Windows 7, so I purchased the SB Audigy PCI (SBO57O) on Ebay because of it is acknowledged by the OS. Sound is crisp, clean, Itunes blew me away, and Movies explode with the speaker system I have. I tried to use the onboard sound card, but found that thing to be the usual CRAP.
Summary: The Sound Blaster Audigy PCI Audio Card is a great choice if you're looking for nice sound. I must note that I have found that if you are running windows vista, win 7, or win 8 you will need to go to Creative Labs website and download current drivers because the installation CD does not support these operating systems. Even when run compatibility mode it does not work. So get the proper drivers and enjoy this the sound that this card produces.
No need to "Plug & Pray" with a lot of hacking--installed instantly!

Summary: i bought this sound card because it was a very inexpensive way to improve the sound of my computer. It was easy to install and it did improve the sound quality.I've been using it for 2 months now with no problems
Summary: Bought it for my Linux box. Likes: Great sound for a cheap price. Still works with older PCI mother boards Dislikes: Software and drivers are all intended for boxes running Microsoft OS Summery: You won't go wrong using this sound card.
Summary: I bought this sound card to replace a broken on-board sound card and it does the job very well. I can't say much about the sound quality since I have cheap speakers but it is at least as good as in on-board one. It's a great 7.1 card for people on a budget. I use it on Windows 7 64 bits and everything works fine.
