Recently, I purchased the Sound Blaster X-fi Go! Pro, a small USB sound device for about $40. This is one of Creative's recent products; I had hoped that it would allow for a cheap improvement in sound quality. However, I have noticed that I seem to get pops and crackles while listening to CD playback more often than when using my Realtek onboard sound. Also, just now, while listening to the song "Silverfuck" on the Smashing Pumpkins' Siamese Dream album, I noticed a sort of buzzing noise during the quieter parts of the song. It is also clearly present during "Luna". That buzzing is not present if I use the onboard sound.
Is it safe to assume that this is an issue with the Creative device? I have the latest drivers installed.
