  • 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.

  • 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.

Excellent Hardware, Average Software

Kevin Dillon, Amazon

  • 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.

As expected

  • 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.
