Summary: Good for trying to upgrade from bad mobo sound. Not so good if you are looking for the best.
Pros: Great range and can deliver with the updated drivers It works well clear sound all setup works from stereo and headset modes to the 7.1 channels
Cons: Does not have the power to drive high impedance sound drivers for high end speakers, so you are going to have to spend more for that. Does not actually use True X-fi Suffered some interference on the low 15-45 Hz range. Could vary from card to card. mobo to mobo.
Summary: IMPORTANT: 1: Make sure you setup your preferences in the control panel, so that way to get the optimum sound. 2: Remember with reviews that not everyone who has a "high understanding" on their tech knowledge, really does.
Pros: This Card is very easy to install, and sound good quality once you adjust it to your preferences. The biggest pro-factor to me is the 7.1 surround capability, considering i just purchased a 7.1 Home Theater System and have it hooked up via the TosLink cable. If you are on a budget this card is th...
Cons: Con's: None that I can think of off hand, i haven't had any issues with it like those with negative reviews... i guess they were expecting a genie to pop out of it?
Summary: I am using Windows XP pro. If you plan on buying this card to use on a Vista computer, DON'T!!! Too many quirks and problems with drivers and popping noises and the software doesn't seem to work well with Vista for some reason. You need a strong processor as this card does not have its own cpu.
Pros: I bought this card specifically to play MP3 music over 2 channel stereo speakers (QSC's with 2600 watts total RMS) for DJ computer. I use this setup for parties and large clubs where I need big sound that carries. So far I have nothing but praise for the music sound quality of such a budget card....
Cons: The EAX 3D sound effect is great but if you don't have a mixer it could cause problems. It can sound very muddy at a distance without surround speakers. Sound Chrystalizer works well with older music or low bit rate MP3's but not so well with music ripped straight from new CD's at 256kb/s or high...
Summary: For the music buff looking for a quality sound card delivering awesome sound this card is for you without breaking the budget. This card uses the same audio chip set used as in all of the X-Fi lines but does not have gaming capabilities and is meant for pure music.
Pros: Perfect for music, modest price and easy installation. Awesome sound.
Summary: I have used creative sound cards many times before and they have never let me down. I was pleased to see that it was more geared for music / media. I did not need all the extras included for gaming.
Pros: Very easy to install, update process went smoothly.
Summary: Well I ordered this as it was on offer but it had to be one of a small hand full that doesn't have ASIO support! which is a nightmare as i need it for my Production and Composing. But other than that the card is nice it sound soo good! and it doesn't lag just a great card!
Excerpt: Карта X-Fi Xtreme audio подойдёт для любителей посмотреть фильмы (хорошо ведёт себя с системами 5.1, настраивать и подключать удобно).
Pros: (+) просто хороший звук, но не лучший (+) глубокие басы (+) PCI_Express слот, не грузит CPU
Cons: (-) некорректно работабший официальный драйвер под Windows 7 x64, периодичкски возникают лаги под играми, намучался немало (-) отсутствует аппаратная поддержка ASIO (-) отсутствует нормальная аппаратная поддержка EAX (-) неуклюжий Creative Audio Console
