Can it deliver? The range of surround options and the inclusion of Dolby Digital Live is one area where this card differentiates itself from the X-Fi. The card also offers ASIO support. Whilst once restricted to cards designed for the audio production market, ASIO is now much more widespread. Other included features are EAX 2, which is the bare minimum for a gaming sound card but all that can be offered since later versions of EAX are exclusive to Creative.
Before getting to what the thing actually sounds like, you need to know about the most important design element of the whole card. Every output on the back shines with a different colour. The card uses the Cirrus Logic CS analogue to digital converter, a genuinely a high-end audio chip that can be found in pro-audio gear costing thousands of pounds.
The digital to analogue chip is also well regarded. The mixer software does a reasonable job of presenting the myriad of surround options, although as is often the case, the eye candy gets in the way of legibility with small text and colours that stand out poorly against the background.
As an informal test to measure background noise in a real settings, I use a sample editor such as Adobe Audition , set the recording input to be line level and turn it up to full. Listening to a piece with a wide dynamic range is a satisfying experience with a well-rounded and nicely defined sound. With a comprehensive PDF manual marred by the usual translation mistakes , Vista drivers and a thoughtful design, this is an impressive and capable card.
