Unit died in 7 weeks. No refunds.

Summary: This unit was discounted heavily over the holiday. At least there was that. Just think it is worth mentioning that the product owner is definitely a fool. He has been buying creative products for 14 years and nearly all of them are non functional or were a nuisance to work with in the 1st place.
Pros: -It sounds good before it dies on you.
Cons: -Lasted 7 weeks. -There seems to be a block on returns or store credit. -Amazing it is listed at $120. A deep gouge.
Summary: Not the THX sound that I was looking for as one would expect to hear in a theater. I feel like I was ripped off!!! I was expecting to see the THX logo on the unit but it wasn't.....This thing sucks, and doesn't meet my expectations
Summary: If you wish to use this unit with Soundforge or any software that records digital at 44.1 which is the pro standard, forget about this unit. It records only at 48hz or 96hz which are analog standards. How can you call it audiophile when it does not record or output at audiophile standard.
Summary: I bought this to go with my nice new pair of audio-technica headphones. However, installing the device's software caused my PC to blue screen, and completely lock me out of my PC. Booting into safemode and removing the driver was the only option.
Broke after four months and wasn't even that great when it was working

Summary: I'm a transcriptionist, and I bought this to use with my headphones for work. I was hoping to get better audio so that I could understand recordings that were poorer quality. First off, installation was a headache, but that's because I have a Mac and this is not technically compatible with Apple...
Pros: Small compact, usb power, adequate inputs and outputs, control software fine.
Cons: Not acceptable for the mobile dj b/c the outputs are not loud enough to give any bass. I have a 250W amp and tried to drive my powered 15" subwoofer. Woefully underpowered, I thought my powered subwoofer had went bad until I plugged my cd player into the same inputs as the sound card. The sound c...
Summary: I'm inclined to believe Creative deliberately made their labeling confusing, as the rest of their X-Fi products have multi channel support. I suspended my policy of never buying Creative products due to their dubious drivers, and this is what I get..
Pros: It has a high SNR, 114dB. That's pretty good.
Cons: Only supports 2.1 audio. Seriously? Not stated on the box anywhere. It's going back to the store immediately, because a $100 2.1 channel sound card is so far away from what I wanted it's not even funny.
