nice led on board - too bad it cannot change color. I connect through Toslink to my HiFi system
constant driver failure. inconsistent operation in win8, still cracling unwanted noises in beats pro headset emanating from SB card. I can't hear these noises from HiFi though.
This board does not worth the money. unless you need the extra useless sound effects.
The 600ohm headphone amp in the Sound Blaster Z PCIe has 4X the output power of standard onboard audio and should definitely power the Beats Pro headphones well.
This sounds like there may be an issue with your motherboard firmware which if not updated by the manufacturer to meet the latest PCIe spec for handling peripheral devices will exhibit they issues you noted above.
If you update your motherboard firmware and still have this issue..please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can help you resolve the issue.
