Summary: I ordered this sound card to replace the one on my computer as I needed 5.1 supply for my speakers. After fitting the card and testing, I found the only sound output was from the centre/sub woofer socket and none at all from the satellite sockets.
Summary: Just about OK. I bought this for the optical S/PDIF output which as lacking on the mobo, however the digital output configuration only offers 48Khz, so all lossless CD rips are resampled. Does support WASAPI in Vista with a 48Khz stream, I used foorbar2000 to resample lossless rips.
Summary: A good all round sound card, complete with a small control panel application that would work well with an analogue set up. unfortunatley I was looking for a card capable of outputting 5.1 via the TOSlink optical cable to my surround system, this card does not allow for such a function.
Summary: Sound quality easily equals that of Creative Labs sound cards and installed in minutes. Easy to use C-Media software bundle to adjust your desired sound. Well worth the money. This neat little card soon sorted out a crackly sound problem that I was having with Windows XP and Drivers from Creative...
Summary: I was devastated when my p.c couldn't locate my soundcard following a re-boot. But then I brought this and couldn't be more happier with it. It creates a whole new sound along with a program to have extra control over the audio effects.
