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). The on-board DACs are really good, and the sound is great!
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.
Professional Grade Audiophile Sound Card with Built-in Amplifier! Great product!

Summary: Absolutely love this product! Easy to install and the software from Creative makes this a breeze for any system! If you have 150plus ohm cans, then I would highly recommend utilizing this sound card! It has a the built-in amp that will power even the most power-hungry cans (aside from a few).
Summary: I have found very few reviews that address the recording capability and stereo playback of this card, therefore I emphasize these features of the card. I collect vinyl LP's 45's and 78's. I have audio restoration software which I use primarily to restore my 78's. I used a M-Audio 24/96 card for years, but when I recently built a new computer, the motherboard would not support it.
That was impressive experience than internal sound in M/B if you have more good speaker and device

Summary: I bought ZxR last month. and used it with my pc & speaker. That was impressive experience than internal sound in M/B if you have more good speaker and device...etc, you will feel better than me. I recommend to buy this stuff, if you have enough budget and devices.(good speakers, DAC, etc.
Summary: Sounds Fantastic. But beware the default record settings enable smart volme management, crystalizers, etc... Need to turn those off before recording or you will end op with some really strange audio.
Summary: Aside from the usual quirks with using a dedicated sound card, if you spend some time resolving them you will find that this card is super quiet and is perfect if you're planning on transferring either analog or digital audio between your pc and other high-end components.
