Summary: Perfect. This is so much better than the integrated Realtek on my Dell XPS 8300. It is like night and day. I wish I had bought one of these years ago. Nov. 26, 2014 After using the device for a while, there is one thing I think they should have done differently.
Summary: Using them with 250ohm DT770 headphones--sounds great, is able to drive them just fine. Line-in jack seems to pick up noise from the USB cable or something, which I can see being a significant issue if that's important to you. Luckily I'm not using line-in for anything. Solid little device.
Pros: Great sound quality Surprisingly functional drivers Able to drive high impedance headphones
Cons: Interferes with onboard sound card Line-in input picks up noise from USB cable
Summary: As an audiophile I've been looking for the right solution since I do not have room in my case for an additional card. i was skeptical about a USB sound card but I went ahead and bought this and holy cow I was instantly blown away. The fidelity is great when you plug in a pair of nice phones.
Summary: Good card, nice clean sound, not happy about getting SBX instead of THX. Bad advertising.
Pros: Sounds fairly good for two channel.
Cons: Picture says THX, advertised feature describes THX pro studio. When unit arrived it says SBX, and describes different feature of SBX pro studio. This is not proper, thought i was getting THX certified feature
Soundblaster X-Fi HD Works Well in Home Music Studio

Summary: This USB sound card installs easily and works well with my older HP G70 laptop and my Lenovo Ideapad. I've thus far used its mic input from my external mixer and its stereo output to my powered speakers. The "What you hear" feature is essential with my music work and it is welcome back!
Summary: Pros: Nice gadget. between Hi-Fi and Hi-End, pleasant retail box, Nice look, easy to install. Good sound, S/N ratio seems to be as declared. Now you are free from various internal PC bus noises. CONS: 1. +15% CPU load on some laptops 2. No native ASIO driver available 3. No driver updates
Summary: Let's get the negative out of the way first. I wasted part of two days trying to get the provided software to work on my Windows 7 PC. I went to the Creative website to find this device and get the latest drivers. Couldn't find it.

Summary: This is a great box for high quality playback and digitizing of LP's. However, make sure your system meets the requirements. These can be found on the Creative web site at the following URL: [...] Choose the Specifications tab and find the system requirements near the bottom.
Summary: Here's the quick and dirty verdict on this product: it is like a love-hate relationship. But currently we're dating and making beautiful music together, so to speak. Here is our personal history: the relationship worked perfectly on the first day (albeit with the "what you hear" echo described...
Summary: Great value for anyone who wants to convert records to digital -- provided you've got a turntable. You will want a good click removal program and I've made digital files that you cannot tell were from an LP.
Pros: Does a fantastic job with my turntable as a source. Haven't had a chance to use a tape deck (line in) input. With Audacity as the capture program the WAV file from a classical recording was outstanding. In the very quiet sections I can hear the tape hiss from the original recording (via my pro he...
Cons: I had to return the first one because the volume control didn't work. Set up is weird. I've got W7 64 Pro and after installing everything it still took several reboots before the unit started working. Once running it's great. I use a Logitec USB headset for when I don't want to play through the s...
