A great choice, as this card has an exciting and enjoyable soundThe ZXR is an expensive sound card, but has dropped in price recently. I'm using it for playing music and gaming and I am really delighted with it, much better than I expected. Don't get hung up over 7.1 vs 5.1, unless you have a good 7.1 system and it is really a must have, as this 5.1 card will sound better than most 7.1 cards out there. I'm using the Corsair SP2500 speakers (stereo) and combined with this card, they sound great, music sounds very detailed, punchy and exciting, the card has it's own signature, which makes it enjoyable to listen to and is high quality (I am a discerning audiophile and while not as good as my proper Hi Fi, I find myself using it a lot for YouTube and background music and I really like the sound). Gaming (Battlefield mainly) is submersive too, using PC36D Senns, great separation of sounds, realistic explosions and gun fire. Bass good, but the senns are not bass heavy, which is actually better for hearing footsteps. No native dolby surround sound, but the 5,1 surround works well, although it's not really going to give you any advantage in terms of locating enemies. The card needs good speakers and headphones to get the most out of it, likewise good speakers and headphones need a good sound card, so not a cheap proposition all in, but at the £150 price mark, I can certainly recommend the card. The card also comes with a good headphone amp, which is needed, as the card is not powered other than from the mobo. It has a daughter board for high quality recordings and although I've not done any myself, it all adds to the value of what is an exceptional sound card, which is a good all rounder, music, gaming and films.

Card Not Detected Bug Windows 8The sound from this card is fantastic and all the written hype about this card is true!
Under windows 8/8.1 the card is often not detected at all, leaving you to reposition the card into another PCIE slot and wait for the same detection issue to hit that slot, then move it back to the initial slot!
Check out ZXR not detected on google first prior to making this purchase as Creative have still not sorted out this issue and I wish I had waited for a few more months before I purchased mine.
