Before I had this soundcard, I was stuck with Realtek AC'97 onboard audio, and it's not really what I wanted. I record a lot of music off the computer, and it wasn't good enough. I have a Creative SB Live! in one PC, so I decided to get the next model up from that. The best settings for recording is to select 'What you hear'; you may have to increase the volume of your recordings in the software you use, but it's better than having the recording clipped like my onboard sound did.
The best thing about this soundcard is that you can alter the controls for the bass if you do not have any controls on the sub itself. In the control panel, you can have bass boost set by percentage and also change the cut off frequency, which will go between 10Hz and 200Hz. The sound quality is exceptionally clear and I find overall that the Creative drivers are much more compatible with other software, especially games, than my old onboard drivers. Good soundcard, not the newest piece of technology around, but it's affordable and gives you great output!
I just got the Creative Inspire T6100 speakers and the Audigy SE is a nice companion, compared to my onboard sound the main difference I noticed was the control over bass the Audigy had, the lower ranges where much smoother and distortion free (not that the sub was not brilliant in the first place), as for the sound quality it's what you would expect, I obviously cannot test it to it's upmost limit with midrange products.
One big advantage is the fact that the card allows for a Mic input aswell as the 3 leads that you sometimes find on some surround sound speakers.
If your into casual listneing like MP3's (which is my main use) the added quality of bass with this card is a great added bonus.
The software is not bad but it's not great either, I'm preety computer privy yet I failed to notice that you have to select an option in creatives software to allow CMSS 3D Surround which basically allows your other speakers to play sound (was confused as to why only 2 speakers and sub where playing). A great feature of the software is the subwoofer controls, there are ltos fo tweaks etc... that can take the bass preety low which is handy if you need to take it lower at night.
Conclusion: If your looking for a reliable alternative to onboard sound this is your card.
The included Creative Media Source software is great for CD burning, MP3 conversion, organising your music library etc, so all in all I'd highly recommend this Card to anyone looking for an effective and inexpensive upgrade for either an outdated card or onboard audio.
The one thing i do have to warn people of, if you use crappy speakers with this sounds card, the sound quality is awfull, as the card tries to send out sound quality and pitches that the speakers cant manage. Make sure you have a good sound system to go with it. The combination that Amazon recommend it s great one, and just happens to be what I have!
Definately worth buying!!
