Amazing quality - 04/23/2010 22:49:37

Rating: 5 of 5 Stars! [5 of 5 Stars!]

Strength:
Amazing clarity and depth - after testing parallel to the onboard so-called "HD" card I can't listen to the onboard anymore! It's like looking at things with one eye or using both eyes - you see the same with one eye but there is something missing! Great frequency response, my THX subwoofer can finally emit infrasounds :) Does everything I need - listening to music, watching movies and rarely playing games. HiFi button to easily turn off all filters and modifications

Weakness:
Does not have all those things that more expensive cards have, but most of the more expensive stuff is dolby license. I don't need that. And it does not have gold plated connectors but again I don't need that.

Summary:
Some say it does not have dolby something.. But sounds so much better than onboard card with dobly on my other computer! I listen to electronic and classical music, and the difference from the onboard is extraordinary for FLAC files because this device makes those fine details audible! I don't use equalizer a lot, but if I do, this one is smooth and even when I max out bass there is no noise nor distortion - before I could bump it up only by ~30%
