Summary: I am not a seasoned Audiophile and not fully comfortable with all the terms used by reviewers here yet, so I am going to refrain from commenting on this soundcard in too technical terms.
What I will say is that Creative went all out with this board.

If you want a sound card, then go high-end or not at all. The motherboard inbuilt ones can do sometimes better than cheap soundcards.

Cons: Few connection ports (4 digital optical and then just 2x 3.5mm jacks for headphones)
Summary: as far as output goes this sound card is amazing in quality and really impressive with output level, has nothing on the soundblaster 16 or awe64 but shure as hell beats any thing modern. im happy with this card accept of one big thing, and for me its big.
Pros: amazing quality, above average pre-amp.
Cons: has 3 output jacks, only 1 works at a time, loads of useless audio affects some on by default.
