I'm still using it. My favorite sound card thus far for games. Especially after OP amp swapping to ridiculous overkill levels.
I am on the cusp of getting this sound card. I do not have onboard S/PDIF on my motherboard, and I'm trying to use this for connecting to my Astro MixAmp with A40's, along with being connected to my speakers via RCA. Also, I may be trying to capture sound via S/PDIF off my PS2 once I get a good video capture card. My questions are, is this going to be good for that sort of set up? Would I get better game sounds if I plug my headphones into the card (I didn't see Dolby Headphone supported)?
My limitations on other suggestions are:
-It must be a PCI card
-I'm not moving away from my A40's. They're easily my favorite headsets, ever.
I recommend the LT1364 for this card, It really brings the midbass punch and it sounds for the lack of a better word, more analogue. It's miles better than the stock JRC4580D especially on headphones, I really didn't expect that from a simple opamp swap.
