Pros: I bought this card only for the Optical out. Bonus is the front panel controls, much better than the on-board audio. I installed this card in a HTPC to connect to my HT receiver, easy install, and it actually auto changes my receiver's settings depending on what I am watching.
Cons: Once you attach this via optical the software is useless, the card simply sends what the source codec is with absolutely no control over the sound. Connected vai multi connector 3.5 surround speakers, and I was able to control almost every aspect of the card. Not an issue since it sounds great, b...
Pros: the creative Sound Blaster recon 3-D. The quality sound good. I have used it for about eight months now with no problems at all. I would recommend buying one if you're going to go with 5.1 surround the sound when gaming is incredible you can actually here your enemies comeing
Cons: the only thing I wish was for better knobs. On it other than that it is an excellent soundcard you just got to be careful with the knobs on it.to not turn them too hard.
Pros: I have to say that this card gives out the best sound that ive ever heard, especially for gaming. Huge upgrade from my onboard Realtek audio. the software for the card is easy to use and understand.
Cons: Price is a little high but you pay for a good product
Summary: I'm not going to say much about the sound except to say that Creative has a long history of being the leader in this part of computing. More and more motherboards are building on-board sound. These codecs are decent, nothing really compares to a dedicated sound card. And creative delivers.
A thorough product thanks to the front panel and to the included microphone

Summary: By Christian G. Rivera Pros: + Affordable wired alternative to the DSS, with mic capabilities (which the DSS lacks for everything but Turtle Beach headsets) + Low noise floor compared to the competition in the affordable price range (excluding the Headzone) + Software (computer required) has many...
