Categories > Sound Cards > Turtle Beach/Voyetra > Turtle Beach Audio Advantage Amigo II USB Interface Sound Card & Headset Adapter

Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5 This Turtle Beach USB Card is Amazing!
Pros: This Turtle Beach USB Audio dongle is PERFECT for anyone who wants to route their speaker audio without using the on-board motherboard Audio chip.

This USB Audio Device has good audio quality, and fantastic ability to be used for movies, games, and other media.
Cons: None!

Categories > Sound Cards > ASUS > ASUS Xonar DSX 7.1 Channels 24-bit 192KHz PCI Express x1 Interface Audio Card

Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5 Driver Problem Solutions
Pros: Great sound, low price.
Cons: Lots of driver complications.
Other Thoughts: Finding drivers on ASUS site felt like a maze and their site is quite slow IMO. Go on the ASUS site and search for "Xonar DSX." Click on the card, and go to the "Support" tab. In the middle you will see the "Driver & Tools." From there you select your operating system and download the latest driver for the device.
Another problem I encountered was that it DID NOT produce sound over Steam in home streaming to another computer and DID NOT record in-game sound when I used Nvidia Shadowplay. If anyone is experiencing the same problem, open up the Xonar Drivers and on the bottom right, you will see "DSP Mode" with buttons labeled "HF or GX." Turn those off.

Categories > Sound Cards > Creative Labs > Creative Labs Sound Blaster Zx soundcard

Rating + 2Rating + 2Rating + 2Rating + 2Rating + 2 Don't get this
Pros: The sound quality for playback is excellent.
Cons: No linux driver support. You can play around with the snd_hda_intel module to get only the front panel to work, rear still doesn't work.

The microphone port doesn't record clear audio in Windows. Other people say I sound like I'm underwater when i use it. Played around with all the settings as recommended by some forums and couldn't get an acceptable resolution. This is using a few different types of microphones and the latest drivers by creative.

Categories > Sound Cards > ASUS > ASUS Xonar DG 5.1 Channels 24-bit 96KHz PCI Interface Sound Card

Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5 Solved my Sound Issues!
Pros: I have an Asus desktop system and I recently installed a video card in it. When I did this, my Realtec onboard sound stopped working. This card solved the conflict I had and now my audio sounds great. It is actually much clearer before including the microphone input which always had a bad hiss before. I can now go back to narrating my Youtube videos again with a noticeable improvement in quality. The best money I have ever spent!
Cons: No cons!
Other Thoughts: Thanks for the quick shipping and great service. I can always count on New Egg!

Categories > Sound Cards > Creative Labs > Creative Sound Blaster Z 70SB150000000 5.1 Channels 24-bit PCI Express (x1, x4 or x16) Interface Sound Card

Rating + 1Rating + 1Rating + 1Rating + 1Rating + 1 Do not buy !
Pros: It makes sound come out of your speakers.
Cons: Its supposed to support both Dolby Digital and DTS Live, but the drivers for the card will not install either the Dolby or the DTS packs. It shows in my control panel that the "extras" were installed, but they were not. Ive gone to the Creative forums and found many a posts(some over 6months old, with 0 creative responses) where people are having the exact same problem I am.. but Creative has not responded to anyone, they never do, on the forums about how to fix this. Creative does not give technical support, you buy their products and if you have issues.. your on your own !
Other Thoughts: Never again Creative, your lack of support for anything is incredulous.

Categories > Sound Cards > Creative Labs > Creative Sound Blaster Z 70SB150000000 5.1 Channels 24-bit PCI Express (x1, x4 or x16) Interface Sound Card

Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4 Crisp Clear sound
Pros: 1. extremely clear. sounds great with headphones or speakers. great bass if your speakers support it.
2. great audio settings, can adjust anything.
3. microphone settings are legendary. noise reduction, acoustic echo cancellation doesnt make you sound like a robot. smart volume so you don't ruin peoples ears on skype/other VoIP. voice changer for the microphone options that doesn't sound horrible.
4. 100x better audio sound than the z87-a onboard audio.
5. easily switch from headphones to speakers with a switch.
6. supports almost any headphones ohms requirements.
7. very unique features such as amplifying voices. does wonders in movies that have very quiet voice while the ambient noises drown them out.
8. price
Cons: 1. the LED red light is so blinding it could be a laser light. 2.first time plugging everything in, you may have to play around with the settings to actually make it work.
3. LOUD. 100% sound levels WILL blow your ears out. recommend keeping it below 25%. personally found 14% is the best sound level.
4. if its front panel cable, touches ANY cables inside your case, you WILL get cracking/static sound. the back panel on the other hand, is 100% clear. no static, or background sound.
5. scout mode. doesn't work too great and sort of a useless feature. was overly advertised.
6. microphone isn't that great. you have to have a VERY quiet room or it picks up everything. not as clear as your average microphone.
Other Thoughts: Great buy. its from Creative, of course it'll have great sound.

Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5 Unbelievable difference
Pros: I'll state right up front, this blows away any sound card or onboard motherboard chipset I have ever owned or heard. Absolutely crystal clear and the greatest 5.1 sound separation between the channels. Excellent
Cons: Jacks are not labelled. Why can't F, R, C be used so you don't have to use the manual. sheesh
Other Thoughts: This is installed on an ASUS 990FX R1 motherboard, AMD 8350 and 32GB memory. I uninstalled the RealTek sound from device manager. Uninstalled the drivers. Downloaded the lastest drivers from the SB website. Restarted into bios, disabled the onboard sound. Restarted, then shutdown. Installed the SoundBlaster Z, swapped over the speakers cables and restarted. Installed the new drivers from the website. Perfect install. Use the SB app to tweak the sound to your liking. What sweet sound.

Rating + 1Rating + 1Rating + 1Rating + 1Rating + 1 Garbage on 8.1
Pros: looks cool
Cons: everything else,
snaps, crackles, and pops but you can't eat it.
support is non existant, and apparently they've had this problem since inception but hey, who wants to fix things anyway.
Other Thoughts: I can't understand why it has such a high rating on new egg.

Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4 Just got the sound card today
Pros: Easy to install and setup. Worked fine with windows XP 32-bit... Windows found the drivers and installed them automatically, no need for the cdrom..
Cons: None so far
Other Thoughts: It didn't fit the slot exactly, it was a tad bit short for the slot, but everything worked out as expected...
