4.0 out of 5 stars The usual high quality product from Creative., 14 Jun. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Titanium HD Sound Card (Accessory)
Granted if you buy cheap - you get what you pay for, but invest in a mid-range sound card such as this you get more than what you pay for. Creative have always been market leaders with audio. OK if you pay even more for something dedicated to sound production you pay through the teeth and get better quality and functionality, such as an AVID system. However I'm on a budget, so Creative offer great value for money. I would have given this product five stars if it wasn't for the fact that they don't explain clearly how this soundcard can be expanded by plugging additional extras into it. If someone can explain what else is on offer that plugs into the expansion slots underneath the metal housing - I'd like to know. All in all - a worthwhile investment though.

I am looking at buying this card and believe the long connector is for the Creative I/O drive which is an 5.25" input/output device that can go into any 5.25" bay. It has midi and optical in and out as well as a 5mm headphone jack and input. It also has IR for a remote control. I have one that came with the Audigy 2 ZX Platinum soundcard.

Have a look at http://support.creative.com/kb/ShowArticle.aspx?url=http://ask.creative.com:80/SRVS/CGI-BIN/WEBCGI.exe/,/?St=498,E=0000000001446642240,K=7315,Sxi=16,Answer51364=obj(51364):obj(51367)

The eight pin connector is for your standard front panel 3.5mm headphone and microphone found on a lot of cases.

Be nice to have a pin out though to make sure we are connecting them up correctly! I would suggest browsing the Creative support and clicking on contact us, that gives you a set of menus covering possible "solutions" to your problem as they seem hellbent on stopping you actually emailing them.

Clatter, that was very helpful. However it's a pity that Creative have indefinitely suspended production of the I/O drive that goes with this card. (I found one from a 3rd party though.) I don't know what this means for the future of the X-Fi Titanium card, they advertise all the expansion capabilities of the card in the marketing bumpf but don't actually supply it any longer. Thumbs down to product support. All said though, Creative do make good sound cards, but had I known they might/might not be discontinuing this card, I would have bought ASUS instead.
