Premium build quality/components, lacking proper Win 7 support but works...
20 September 2011
Summary: Very good product, high end sound however Creative does not provide original application support on Windows environments released after XP... Must use 3rd party modded drivers for Windows 7 x64 to get most bundled application software working. Very crisp and high quality audio experience, extreme fidelity bass, well engineered, quality build/finish, robust. A must for Windows XP/7 mulit-boot configuration for premium sound as X-Fi Titanium HD does not support XP...
Summary: This 'soundcard' with external mixer module is very good for the serious amateur musician and will run with Windows XP, Vista and Windows 7, The Windows 7 drivers are Beta but work fairly well and can be downloaded from Creative. Hopefully Creative will bring out 'non beta' drivers soon. The Vista software supplied will work with Windows 7 and there are updates for this on the Creative website.
Summary: Well like it was said above lots and lots of ports, lots of features, web driver upgrade. I've upgraded after 6 years of Audigy 2 Platinum Ex and the improvement was pretty huge. I am using Win XP sp3 and the installation was faultless. Im giving a 4 for the hassle of having to upgrade drivers straight away but, otherwise top marks!
Summary: Brilliant sound card, couldn't ask for more. The console has every possible port and control you could ask for, and the software is creative's usual excellent work. The controls on the console, and then duplicated on the remote really do make the sound card effortless to use.
Excerpt: The sound is fine, but the price is still high, especially Elite-Pro's. Also UK pricing seems to be unreasonably high at £190-220 - I am comparing this with internet shops in Poland, where you can get new E-Pro for £161 (Pixmania.com) and still VAT is 4.5% higher in Poland!
Excerpt: Ease of install This is perhaps the best bit of all, installing the card is simple to a compatent user. It takes a while with all cables, and feeding them where you want them but once in, power on and install the lenghtly disk. The installation of the disk is the tricky card. You have to make sure that the card and speakers are properly connect before you do this (I found out the hard way).
