Technology has a wonderful way of becoming democratic: what was expensive becomes affordable, then becomes inexpensive. Performance only professionals could have afforded becomes the every day routine.

Take this PCI audio board by SIIG, Inc. as an example. It features twenty-four bit sound and a ninety-six kiloHertz sampling rate (CDs use sixteen bit sound and about forty-four kHz sampling), with a ninety-two dB signal to noise ratio, all for the cost of a couple of magazines. Add to that the immersive effects of 7.1 channel sound and modern 3D audio technologies, and you no longer listen to the performance, you're inside it. For the karaoke folks, there's microphone echo, key-shifting, and vocal cancellation.

Audiophile, gamer, or just someone in need of a decent sound board, here's something that might be just what you need. Check it out and decide what you need; we'll still be here when you're ready.

  • newegg Enrich Your Audio Experience In addition to broad support for the latest in 3D audio technologies such as EAX, A3D and DirectSound 3D, the SIIG IC-710012-S2 also supports multi-channel output to 2, 4, 6 (5.1), or 8 (7.1) speaker systems to enrich your audio experience.
  • newegg DD EX and DTS ES Support 8-channel output supports Dolby Digital EX and DTS ES DVD audio formats for pure digital quality surround sound.

5 out of 5 eggsThe bestest for the cheapest!

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's gone. But, being pci, its days are numbered. I will be replacing it with the pci-e version without question, when that time comes. ONBOARD AUDIO SUCKS!!! SIIG RULES!!!

Cons: Modern motherboards and/or cpus don't support this fine little gem.

4 out of 5 eggsWill NOT RECORD 24bit files

Pros: Sounds good, as others have commented. I've run head-to-head tests against a Creative Labs AUDIGY installed in my other computer. I can take the output from each computer and feed an input to the same speaker since this Altec Lansing speaker has dual inputs. Very convenient for a situation like this where you want to do a comparison. Using the same music player, feeding the same speaker, playing some of the same music tracks on both computers, one the Audigy, the other this SIIG IC-710012, I must say the SIIG is noticeably better. This approach allowed a back and forth comparison, with only a few seconds delay between listening to the Audigy and then the SIIG, then back to Audigy, then SIIG again, doing this several times. The SIIG does sound better. But I can't really compare this card to the Realtek drivers and the on-board motherboard sound chip since I had to uninstall the Realtek drivers before I could use the SIIG so that is an impossible comparison to make.

Cons: Right on Page 1 of the User Guide booklet, the 3rd item down, it states as follows:
"Supports 24-bit/96khz playback, 16-bit/48khz RECORDING"

That's from the horses mouth guys. The mfgr states clearly this card WILL NOT RECORD 24-BIT files, so if you're planning to transfer some of your vinal LP albums to computer files, this is not the card to have. If you want to create computer / digital music off your vinal LP's, go get a 32-bit sound card, as anything less is just shooting yourself in the foot.

Other Thoughts: On the main info page for this product, Newegg shows this product as:

Digital Audio: 24-bit

That is deceiving because it only PLAYS 24 bit files and I don't know what good that does because everything one finds on music CD's is all 16-bit. All the ".CDA" files on a CD are 16-bit, all the stuff you might download from one of these popular music stores is 16 bit, so what good is it to be able to play 24 bit where the only place you'll encounter a 24-bit sound file is the one you make yourself, from injecting audio from your own turntable or cassette tape deck, but you ain't gonna do it with this card cuz it can't make 24-bit files.
Just something worth keeping in mind. Thanks for letting me post.

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic

Pros: Always said I never cared whether I used onboard sound or a card....man, I was a fool. Got this card after purchasing a 7.1 capable headset. The difference in quality is unbelievable. Absolutely love it !

Cons: It can't conduct a symphony yet...but I'm sure they're working on that.

3 out of 5 eggsgood sound, bad mic

Pros: It was easy to install and update drives. sound is good when listening to pretty much everything.

Cons: the drivers failed and crashed my computer a buncha times. once i installed newer drivers it didn't crash my computer anymore but they wouldn't open at all. then after that there was another update that seemed to fix the driver issue. the mic jack failed after about 6 months. i thought it was my headsets i bought 2 other headsets and they sucked too. i finally got a wireless headset that worked throught the usb and that workd. but i didn'tr ealise it had its own sound drivers when connecting so it had nothing to do with my sound card. i bought a new nice headset that i know worked well, but didn't on my computer now with a little mroe reaserch i found out it was this card. dont bother getting it if your a gamer, the mic problem is universal to anywone who uses the mic.

1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Inexpensive for the features listed.

Cons: This card did not work for me at all. Ubuntu will not recognize it; and Windows 7 recognizes that it exists, but refuses to use it. It may be an issue with how I built my computer, but I don't see how. I tried installing multiple driver packages, and the best I could do was get a time-delayed signal through the line-in jack that Windows refused to route to any recording software.
