It's a god soundcard. It does make a difference even in a "premium sound" in the new expensive Motherboards.
The only thing that annoys me is that whenever you disconnect and re-connect a mini-jack to it the volume goes back to default (it blows your ears when you have headphones on when you plug them in)

Rated 4 out of 5 by theapprentice Good but no cigar.
I have always been impressed with the audio cards from creative.
This card does it's job very well and the audio quality is very good.
The audio connections are also very useful with the all important stereo line in, unlike most other cards around this price that just have the mono mic jack input.
However, unfortunately there is no software media player like the excellent creative jukebox program that came with the creative audigy platinum range many years ago. The only software with this card is a utility program to fine tune the audio specifications concerning the e.q., effects, overall quality and the output type, (being either stereo or multi - speaker output).
This card is very good but only if you DO NOT need a card that comes with a software program to manage audio files.
