Not standalone pre-amp

Wayne H., Newegg
2 August 2013
  • Pros: Since I'm going to return it anyway I didn't test it as a PC interface so I can't comment on those features which I'm sure are laudable.
  • Cons: Can't use AC/USB power adapter to connect with an AV receiver. It must be connected to an "approved operating system" or it won't turn on. I was hoping for a dual purpose device: turntable preamp for my sound system and turntable interface to my PC to convert vinyl to MP3's. (I don't want to wast...

Okay, not too good on high frequencies/

Shane C., Newegg
10 February 2013
  • Pros: Good Base, Decent impedance, smooth sound, semi-portable.
  • Cons: Bad on Highs(frequency responce is around [8-10Hz to 15Khz]). I bought these for my Sennheiser HD 380s, and their okay, But for the price maybe $20-$30 dollars more you could get better.

Hardware good, software is junk.

kentj, Amazon
6 February 2012
  • Summary: I was getting a lot of noise from my home theater server when playing music and video on my system. This device did cure the noise problem, but when I tried to load the software on my Windows 7 platform, it repeatedly failed with multiple error messages (MUI, 1010 to be specific).

Software and drivers... These guys never learn.

Ed Menke, Amazon
5 August 2011
  • Summary: It has -- forever -- been the case that Creative has created decent, value-driven hardware crippled by bad-to-awful software and drivers. You kind of get the feeling they don't quite know what "bad" (or "good") is.

Utilisation trop complexe

T. Gaël, Amazon
6 April 2013
  • Summary: La carte son est très bien pour écouter à travers un casque ou de bons haut parleur mais quelle galère pour enregistrer à partir d'une source externe (phono ou clavier numérique). Une saturation épouvantable qu'aucun réglage ne semble modifier, le périphérique est parfois enregistré, parfois non.

Sound toll, Treiber Pfui

AaronD, Amazon
21 March 2013
  • Summary: Hallo Leute, Habe mir hier die Beyerdynamics DT770 und DT990 250Ohm mit dieser externen Soundkarte (für meinen Laptop) bestellt. Nach dem Probehören war ich vom Sound begeistert und dachte inen guten Kauf gemacht zu haben.

Von wegen 114dB (

JackBlack, Amazon
24 January 2013
  • Summary: Die 114dB gelten für D/A-Wandler. Aber das Micro-In Signal hat 88dB. Das Grundrauschen beim Micro-In ist einfach viel zu hoch, mit Verstärker dann unbrauchbar. Und im Sprech/Hör-Tests ist sie genauso schlecht wie ganz einfache USB-Karten (Beyerdynamic USB Soundkarte).

problème de micro coupure

joel, Amazon
18 January 2013
  • Summary: Cette carte son est vraiment un plus sur 2 points: la Connectique en RCA moins fragile que le mini jack et la qualité du son des musiques enregistrées sur le PC qui reprennent du relief et de la profondeur c'est vraiment un plus.

User Review

  • Excerpt: Качество звучания на уровне весьма посредственной мультимедиа карты. Не нужно заниматься самообманом, это именно так. Для более или менее профессиональной работы не годится. Есть заметное смещение при записи. Те кто берет карту для музицирования, покупайте только предназначенные для этого решения.
  • Pros: Минимально приемлемый звук Привлекательный дизайн (до того времени пока не возьмешь в руки)
  • Cons: Несерьезно легкая Передискретизация в 48KHz Нет нативной поддержки ASIO Заметное смещение из-за задержки при записи. (Для записи в DAW не годится)

Wie immer der Treiber...

M. Boiger, Amazon
12 November 2010
  • Summary: Zur Vorgeschichte: Ich benutzte bisher eine X-Fi Surround 5.1 USB. Die Karte hatte einen annehmbar guten Klang, jedoch kommt sie die Dynamik betreffend bei weitem nicht an meine alte Audigy 2 heran.
