Great Sound Card...Lacking Support.

Pros: Very Good sound quality. Best card for the price for music and limited recording. I have used it in a low end studio recording pc and it worked really well with cakewalk and a few other programs.

Cons: The software/drivers are a little buggy and the card likes to force you into re-installing it whenever hardware changes are made to your pc. Absolutely no updates from M-audio.

Other Thoughts: Probably the best Creative alternative for under $100 if not used for gaming, seems to eat up a bit of resources on my machine.

Works great in XP

Pros: I have had no problems with sound quality. But a friend with a creative card has been known to hear better in a few games.

Cons: I have tried the VIA drivers but only get blue screans in Vista 32bit.

Other Thoughts: This late in the game I would never buy it again. I bought more then 3 years ago for only ten dollars more.

C'mon people....

Pros: Sound is amazing. Built a somewhat portable system for a friend of mine who's a musician for quick and dirty encoding and playback of recorded sessions from his main workstation and performances. The 5ms latency time is no joke.

Cons: Drivers aren't maintained by M-Audio. Guess that can be easy to miss.

Other Thoughts: This is not a gaming card. Use this for the 192KHz sample rate.

Learn to search for drivers:
http://www.viaarena.com/default.aspx?PageID=420&OSID=37&CatID=2930&SubCatID=107

viaarena.com maintains up-to-date drivers for most (if not all) VIA based products.

As for Linux, you can find distro/kernel specific drivers at viaarena or simply build support directly into ALSA.

a little dissapointing

Pros: good sound

Cons: no support

Other Thoughts: well the basic grievances are in, no MCE drivers, it's game mode senseaura is not supported in any games I have bought, though it does sound nice. I am an audiophile and one of the reasons I bought this card was the 192k sampling rate, but there is no software that supports it for under $xxx. I had hoped it would include ripping/conversion software, and perhaps a media player, no, nothing. Apparently the hardware can do a lot, but there's no way to find out.

M-Audio Revolution 7.1

Pros: 24bit/96kHz recording
24bit/192kHz playback (2ch only)
Bass management
ASIO support
7.1 surround sound
106 dB Dynamic Range 107dB S/N
Great for music, movies & recording

Cons: No new drivers since 2004
No Media Center or Vista support

Other Thoughts: I bought this sound card for one thing and one thing only SOUND QUALITY. You will be hard pressed to find a better sound card in this price range with the same kind of features.

I use a number of music programs (i.e. Reason, Acid Pro, FL Studio, Sonar, Ableton Live, Pro Tools etc...) and before using my 8ch onboard sound I couldn't get my latency down past 92ms but with this M-Audio card I can get it down to 5ms which is as close as you can get to professional audio equipment standards!!!
All in all this card rocks! It plays flawlessly everything I run trough it with from wav to mp3. Movies are so much better now and making music is a lot better in terms of overall sound quality.

If you really care about your music like I do you need this card or any other M-Audio sound card for that matter.

Thanks Newegg & FedEx for the great service and M-Audio for such a great product (will you please hurry up and get this thing ready for Vista)

S/PDIF Not Ready For Prime Time

Pros: The sound quality is excellent. Has coaxial out. User interface is simple. Analog outputs work fine. No bloatware.

Cons: Drivers are weak at best. The newest driver was created in 2003! Support was not very good. I was using this in a new HTPC build using the S/PDIF out. If I restarted the computer I would have to un-install and re-install the drivers every time. Tried different PCI slot and downloading drivers from M-Audio but the same drivers are on the install CD they are so old. If I never had to restart my system it worked great and that is not acceptable. There are better cards in this price range. I am a computer builder and have built over 300 machines. Returning for refund.

Other Thoughts: HTPC Build: C2D E6400, 1GB Kingston RAM, MSI 945GM3-F motherboard. Saphire 100119L-HS video.
