Good Sound Card

J. Perkins, Amazon
10 May 2014
  • Summary: I built a Windows 7 machine for my son out of old parts that I had gathered. Unfortunately I only had one ancient sound card that was no longer supported, so I bought this guy. Good price and it does the job. You can't ask for much more than that.

StarTech sound card

Jimmy, Amazon
6 May 2014
  • Summary: it works fine i can hear the direction of the sound better and clearer. in gaming i dont have to look in that direction to know where the sound came from.in other words, i dont have to look back and forth to pin point the sound. i also can hear the distinct sounds of tanks. differant tanks has differant sounds you can clearly tell them apart. helpful in gaming to say the least.

Won't send 7.1 over S/PDIF

Ninety6k, Amazon
16 April 2014
  • Summary: In my experience with this card, the S/PDIF output (which is why I bought it) is only supplying my tuner with 5.1. That happens to be acceptable for the price / what I'm doing, but if you really need 7.1 and you plan on running coax out to your tuner... good luck getting 7.1, 5.1 is the best it will do for me.

  • Summary: The sound card works great. The only thing I'm having a problem with is getting a mic to work with it. It's probably user error though. Lol.

Works as advertised

EricJ, Amazon
23 February 2014
  • Summary: I bought this item when the SB Live card on one of our Windows XP PCs stopped working. This product was cheap, had decent reviews, was very easy to install, and performed an adequate job at bringing our sound back to life. Our setup is using basic stereo sound for items like DVD video development and you tube with no real needs for high fi quality sound so we are not taking advantage of the 7.1 surround sound in the current configuration.

No problems

Georgia Sun, Amazon
19 February 2014
  • Summary: I'm using this card in a Win XP computer, installed the card, installed the drivers and I've had no problems. My stereo wants digital input from a RCA type cable and this card provides it.

Did not function at all

Joe weise, Amazon
18 February 2014
  • Summary: I bought this as an upgrade to my 2 channel stock audio card that already had a digital audio out. Once installed this and plugged in the digital out wire to my surround sound system I was unable to get ANY sound to function. After messing with it I eventually gave up and took it out. Total waste of money.

  • Summary: Works for me. It produce perfect surround sound with my 5.1 Zalman headphones - work front, central and back speakers in bough ears. Some inconvenience: 1. You have to desable ALL sound drivers before card installation. 2. You need installation disc to set up drivers and "Audio Deck".
