Summary: The only problem with this sound card.....is finding it. Creative Labs advertised this as an addition to your PC. They missed a larger market, you can add this to any audio system and increase your listening enjoyment. Your desktop, laptop,television,vehicle,on a trip with any audio player and a set of speakers this card will add depth, definition and dimension. Easy to set up,simple to adjust and tailor your sound to any atmosphere you desire.
Summary: I've been using this for a while and the sound is MUCH better than what my computer came with. Very satisfied. Theres just one issue. Theres only one jack to plug in your speakers. So if you have 5.1 speakers you wont get surround sound, since theres just a single jack instead of 3. I had to buy plugs that converted multiple cables in to one so I could plug all my speakers into this, and even then I didn't get surround sound.
