Pros: I bought one of these over a decade ago. And I've been running it non-stop ever since. It's lasted me through my last 3 builds without any issues. All the while giving me FAR superior sound over the onboard options. In fact I've grown to love this card so much, I'm really going to miss it when it...
Cons: Modern motherboards and/or cpus don't support this fine little gem.

Summary: AVOID THIS PRODUCT IF YOU AREN'T COMPUTER SAVVY! I purchased this piece of junk and found that the drivers included with it don't work and you are supposed to go on line and try to find ones that do! After a couple of hours of total frustration, I gave up, pulled the sound card and trashed it.

Summary: NO TECH SUPPORT FOR BOSTON ACOUSTIC DIGITAL BA735 SPEAKERS: I only give 3 stars for this card because the Siig Tech Support sucks balls and never responded to my question on how to get my Boston Digital speakers to work with this card.
Summary: This card works like a champion on Win XP Pro. It does not, however, work as well on Win 7. Why this difference? Because all of the advanced drivers do not carry over into Win 7. Not even a driver update will correct the issue.
Summary: I had the HT omega but could not get another one. Chose this one because the card configuration was closest to what the omega looked like. Put it in 64bit dell xps with W8.1 OS. Sound is good but my needs are small.
Summary: This new sound board seems to be working fine. It repalced another major brand board (Creative "Blaster Audigy SE, 24 bit 5.1/6.1/7.1 with EAX)that was only a year and a half old and bit the dust. I HOPE this one will last and work good for many years. Thanks. PS.
