Summary: Soundcard and software are working perfectly. I had many reservations about the ZXR. There are some poor reviews floating around about certain issues ( none of which I have really ran into ). Pros : Great sound quality , Lots of cool features , great input/output variety, accurate effective EQ !
Summary: By Sal's Tech Review When I received this card, I would blown away on how nice the packaging was, makes the product look way more expensive. I also really like the fact that this comes with a control module that allows for plugging in 3.5mm headphones along with the larger connector.
Summary: By Vance I purchased this ZxR to use with my Sennheiser PC G4ME ZERO headset. I had read other users complaining of sound degredation when using the ACM (Audio Control Module) to connect their devices to and that they recommended connecting directly to the sound card.

Summary: I already had one of the best soundcard, I had the (Auzentech X-Meridian 2G) with 100$ of custom opamps on it but it was the best PCI card, yet my new motherboard has only PCI-E slots so I was force to change my soundcard.
Pros: - Even though the software isn't perfect it is still the very best and most complete among Auzentech/Asus/Creative., - The beamforming microphone is highly customizable in the software, it's stereo unlike all other cheap microphone which are omni-directionnal and mono. It's better than nothing ev...
Cons: - RCA only for the Front but not really a big cons., - EMI Shield can prevent the use of some custom opamps., - Regular price I guess. I paid only 205$ and for me that is cheap considering it's the best PCI-E soundcard. The better it is the better it feels well invested so it's great value even a...
Summary: I have a new pc build and just added this card. I thought my new onboard card was great until I installed the ZXR. After a night of listening to music and calling friends on Skype I have no regrets on buying this card other than cost and concern related to the reliability of the hard ware over the...
Summary: Let me start off by saying this is a great product. It replaced my already good ASUS EssenceSTX and is absolutely on par sound quality wise. The Audio Control Module is a useful tool, not only for the beam microphones, but the extra jacks in an easy to reach location is awesome.
Summary: Item came and looked and was boxed as expected, which is something I expect from Creative Labs. Item performs as expected, reafferming the reason I bought it in the first place. Would highly recommend if looking for card of this nature.
