Summary: I have a Dell Optiplex 9010 mini-tower. I'm running Windows 8.1 64-Bit. It came with an integrated RealTek Audio system. Pretty good but I felt my AudioEngine A5's with subwoofer might be even better with this card or the Asus. Went with the SB owing to reviews on its software.
Summary: It's a noticeable improvement over my on-board audio drivers. It doesn't just increase the volume or add unnecessary "color" to the sound like other sound cards. The drivers worked out of the box, and after updating them.
Summary: Basically, pair this thing with some good speakers (I went for Audioengine, pricey, but if you love music, worth every penny) and you will hear things in your music that you've never heard before. I work a lot at home and wanted the best music quality possible, and this thing delivers.
Summary: I wanted to improve the quality of sound sound from my computer, so at first I got the Soundblaster Zx and was amazed, but it fell short of a few options I really wanted. Instantly I knew I needed new speakers to support the improved sound.
Summary: Just loved the warm sounds from it. Been using via: 1.) RCA out to mixer and M-Audio MX8 D2 monitors. I used the monitors for a very long time with vinyl mixing. Hooking them up to high res audio via the ZXR's just blew me away. 2.) Game One for gaming 3.

Summary: The card is simply amazing, this is one of the few cards in the market that can actually drive a 600ohm headphone, sbx pro is doing a great job in virtual surround. Positioning is flawless, pair it with a decent open air headphone and the surround is perfect.
Summary: This was purchased as an upgrade to the Sound Blaster Z, which has performed quite well. I wanted this one for that little bit of improvement, and I'm quite happy. I have this paried with Grado SR325s, and Logitech Z5300s (although with space constraints in 2.1 mode).
Summary: I tried this on Linux. No go. It may have been my mother board. I installed it on a Windows 7 machine. What a treat. I'm now copying my CDs to wav files, not mp3s. Now if we could just get creative to write the Linux drivers that would great....
Summary: GREAT SOUND CARD !!!! MAKE SURE YOU USE HIGH QUALITY CABLES TO CONNECT YOUR SPEAKERS TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE SUPERIOR SOUND. EVERYTHING IS SOLIDLY BUILT AND WELL PACKAGED. NOT CHEAP BUT WORTH IT.
