I got my ZxR today. I'm pretty happy with it so far. Installation was smooth for both hardware and software. Software is a bit clunky, with redundant options. So far the sound quality is very good, way better than on-board sound. It's clean, transparent and soundstage a bit wider. It's an analytical sound.   I only tried listening with my headphones and got mixed results. K701 sounded really thin, distant and very cold overall. Bass was anemic. Even if I got more...
  They didn't even send us a notification email, for those of us who subscribed to it. :D
ZxR in Europe went out of stock in a day.

Creative is recalling ZxR cards?: http://forums.creative.com/showthread.php?t=699322
Here in Switzerland, there's a site that says 5-10 days: http://www.powerch.com/Others.1/Creative+Labs.727/70SB151000001/CREATIVE+Sound+Blaster+ZxR+PCI-Express+Sound+Card.844547.html   Hope this is true...
Newegg even released a video interview with Ryan from Creative. The guy got confused with all the technical components. It's quite funny listening to him not knowing what he was talking about: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lzrvRkjaDNM&list=PLfxaMTbBYP5nMm7L-ZVZ6n3O-Y5ZHU7pE&feature=player_detailpage#t=787s
  It should work with headphone out too. DAC comes after sound processing and shares the same I/V stage for both headphones and line out.
How's music quality of the Z compared to the STX?
  Can't wait to hear your conclusions.
