Pros: Decent sound, software good
Cons: Front pannel jack died in 6 months. Rest of the card died in less than a year.
I had this card for a while and it did a decent job powering my AKG K550's and my Ultrasone 650Pros. I could always tell there was more to be had from them though. The sound was good but a tad muddy on the bass end and a tad clipped on the high end.
After 6 months I got static output from the front panel and had to unplug it. After 10 months of ownership the card would output high pitched hissing noises at all times through headphones or speakers.
I cannot recommend this card with the time it lasted me
Replaced it with a Creative Sound Blaster Z and I am highly impressed with how much better it is.
