1 out of 5 eggsNot Impressed

Pros: PCI E x1 card, 24-bit, gold plated I/O, black PCB, headphone amp.

Cons: Fine-tune EAX settings interface is clumsy, no auto mute when plugging in front headphones, amp not so powerful, it kinda performs like my onboard sound...for 60 bucks maaaaan c'moooonn!

Other Thoughts: Consider the Creative Sound Blaster Z instead.

3 out of 5 eggsSB Rx 7.1.... disappointed

Pros: The card performs just as Creative intended it to do. Installed card and loaded the software without a hitch on a home-built dual boot win7 pro 64 and win8.1 pro 64 rig.

Cons: I've been using Creative cards since the SB16 in the mid-late 1990's. Whenever Creative launched a new series, they would support the hardware with improved software capabilities.

Since M$ decided to nuke XP from orbit, I decided to rid all my systems of XP and roll with win7 and win8.1

My Audigy2 live drive and Audigy2 ZS cards are in separate builds and ran tremendously well with Creative software under XP. I was aware that Creative decided to offer Audigy2 support for win7 and thought nothing of it. As it turns out, the driver support for Audigy2 cards under win7 does away with CMSS 2 and replaces it with CMSS 3D. This is an overall downgrade in defined output profiles and sound quality is diminished.

Other Thoughts: I decided to ditch the Audigy's and upgrade to the Rx... thinking that the newest software suite would have CMSS 2 or something that sounded like it. Nope!

It appears that CMSS 2 is gone for good. It's the only output profile that rocked my Z-5500's and my Klipsch 4.1's. CMSS 2 was designed for the big speaker systems as it threw more range to the bottom end and the up-mix for the surrounds sounded more natural with increased fidelity and balance. It appears that the "Z" series has this "3D" as well. I am extremely disappointed with Creative now.

I am forced to re-build a stand alone XP box for my Audigy2's just to use the older drivers that gave an acceptable sound output for my music collection. I'm returning the Rx. Thanks for reading my review/rant.

3 out of 5 eggs7.1 for Creative only

Pros: Great Sound
Easy to Install

Cons: Only 7.1 with Creative Devices!!!

Other Thoughts: I purchased this sound card to plug my Razer Tiamat 7.1's into. They were the only thing Creative had that wasn't sold out, and it was mostly in my price range. I was super excited when it came in. I plugged it in with no hassle, booted up the drivers off the disk, no problems. Plugged everything in like how I thought it should be. And no side channels. Upon inspection, the side channels are "mixed" with the rears, and sub/center channels. Which I guess is how Creative speakers work? I turned it to stereo and spent some time listening to music on 2.1. It sounded great. RMA'd cause I wanted 7.1 though. ASUS D1 incoming soon.

5 out of 5 eggsWindows 8.1 Drivers

Pros: Probably a nice card...Haven't had a chance to find out yet..Always used Sound Blasters in the past, but this one doesnt have the correct drivers for Windows 8.1

Cons: No Windows 8.1 drivers

Other Thoughts: Would be nice if it had Windows 8.1 driver updates somewhere...It should be said that it is not compatible with Windows 8.1 if the drivers are not available..

Pros: Couldn't find out

Cons: The metal backing on the card makes it not seat properly if you do not have enough space between the motherboard and case.

4 out of 5 eggsSound Blaster Audigy Rx 7.1

Pros: Ease of installation, great sound quality, setup and adjust ability was a breeze. Easily switchable between this and system sound if needed but I don't think you would need to.

Cons: Connecting to the front panel was easy but would not mute external speaker system when headset was used.

Other Thoughts: After upgrading my desktop os, lost the ability to do one thing I love to do and that is to play music on line in chat rooms. So I got this to give me the options needed to play again. After installation and setup, I'm back to playing tunes again and enjoying working on becoming an online DJ lol !!! Thanks so very much
