    It is totally forgotten by his job without incident. Much quieter than original equipment circuits anonymous computers, especially laptops. The remote is a real plus.

    UTILIZATION

    Archisimple installation, especially if you already installed other devices Creative.

    GETTING STARTED

    Drivers without a problem. An update for 18 months. No noticeable latency.
    Audacity, Mediasource, Winamp.
    I use it in 2 channel (sometimes four, but headphones and speaker)

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for 18 months. I would do the same choice at this price (110 euros), if an Edirol, better but more expensive.
    A reproach (but at that price ...): No SPDIF coaxial digital input is the only optical (but the output was the coax + optical).
    This is not a pro, the price is not pro either, it is necessary to forgive the lack of phantom power and balanced connections.
    No power supply via the USB port. In my opinion this is not a defect: USB power poses risks of instability (including other USB Device in use simultaneously).

    I chose this sound card for its optical digital inputs and outputs in order to recover without loss catches my minidisc. I use a laptop ASUS, 512MB RAM, centrino 1.6 MHz, and very important: USB 2
    I mainly use the line input in the recording of instruments, with a preamp tube in front of or behind a mixing desk.

    Note:
    _8 Out so fit 5.1 and 7.1
    _All the connector is gold plated
    _a preamp for a microphone on adjustable wheel
    So here are the features:

    Signal to Noise Ratio: 102 db
    24bits/96 khz converter A / N (one 2-channel stereo input so)
    24bits/96 khz converter N / A for the 8 output channels
    SPDIF input and output (for digital optical input and an output optical......

    SPDIF input and output (for digital optical input and an output optical and coax)
    Support for SoundFont 2.1 for MIDI playback

    For optimal use the USB 2 is required.

    UTILIZATION

    For the installation, Ancun worry, I have no problems of incompatibility.
    The Logitech is very well stocked and everything is very useful: setting levels for each output, bass redirection, surround sound for listening to stereo music in 5.1 or 7.1, management LIBRARY Music by tags, configure the remote to controlling any application, effects caraoké .....
    There is also a very powerful audio editor Goldwave type or Wavelab.

    GETTING STARTED

    The drivers are very stable, I've never had a crash. I chose this card to the quality of sampling (24 bits, 96khz) and I was not disappointed by its A / D converters but I soon also apreciated the amenities of the 8 outputs. Mix a song in 5.1 what happiness.
    With the remote, the computer deviend real HIFI is very friendly.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for 1 year. Therefore a highly reliable I am very satisfied, I intend to also invest in another card from the same manufacturer as it gained my confidence.

    Very good card to decode the digital music from your laptop, except for DTS which is not recognized. A mention to the computer music, huge latency.

    UTILIZATION

    Implementation rather simple, creative neat interface with comprehensive software (setting the cutoff frequency of the subwoofer for example).

    GETTING STARTED

    Sometimes it was more recognized, I had to reinstall the drivers from time to time.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I used three years, she provided a stereo 2 times its good to get out on my 5.1, with remote, very convenient. The problem is that it has ceased to walk overnight, Creative has categorized as "end of life product", so no further assistance available, that is,......

The problem is that it has ceased to walk overnight, Creative has categorized as "end of life product", so no further assistance available, that is, discard and buy back into another ... Long live the consumer society!

    (Originally written by lewkey/translated from Audiofanzine FR)

    I bought this sound card in 2005. The sound is ok for a consumer product and it can route input signals directly to the output, so the optical and analog inputs appear as master in the windows control panel. I only use the optical connection to avoid contacts with the amp (I had a ground loop problem because the amp was connected to a MD player, which in turn was connected to the PC via a USB cable!!).

    I used it mainly as sound card at home because my laptop had no optical connections.

    UTILIZATION

    No installation problems (don't lose the 3 CD-ROMs provided!!!)

    GETTING STARTED

    UTILIZATION

    No installation problems (don't lose the 3 CD-ROMs provided!!!)

    GETTING STARTED

    It was a bit difficult to fully understand the drivers operation in order to make a basic installation (to avoid installing unnecessary software that only uses up RAM, space on the HDD and increases CPU usage!). I have another USB sound card (USB Sound Blaster MP3+ - SB0270) but the product isn't listed any more on the manufacturer's homepage so I'm starting to worry about future driver updates!!!!

    The latency is not exceptional but it is no surprise for a USB 2.0 sound card. More on this point: if you want to record a signal on an external USB HDD to play it back at 32bit/96kHz, don't use a USB hub because it will be overloaded and it won't ever have enough bandwidth for this!!!

    So don't use a USB hub between the PC and this sound card.

    OVERALL OPINION

    There was probably a voltage surge in the USB slot where the sound card was connected to and it doesn't work any more. Sometimes the power LED lights on a couple of seconds but the PC won't detect the card so I think the chip is burnt or something (after 2 and a half years of use). It's a pity that the manufacturer didn't think about some sort of electrical protection for the USB connector (it can't be that hard to implement!).

    Now the card is dead. It's a pity because it was a good sound card.
