Pros:

- Noticeable difference between onboard Audio
- Price

Cons:

- Driver Installation is a pain
- Very quiet front panel volume

Error during installation may be related to a different issue, but it says: "Please connect device" or something along those lines. See Other Thoughts.

Other Thoughts:

May want to lookup: Xonar EEPROM Failure.

After unplugging and reseating the card, I can still sometimes get the same error during installation that the card is not connected. Granted, the PCI express card does feel that it's to not seat firmly since the card is long and a little pressure on the end of the card may raise it out of the slot.

I have a lingering feeling that I should have bought the PCI express version of the Xonar 7.1 card. I had it on a previous machine and I was very happy with it. I think once I get the driver worked out, I can work around the low FP volume. It's just a little contradicting to have all this stuff about headphone boost. I'd rather not have to plug and unplug cables when I want to switch between speakers and headphones.
