I am an audiophile and I love this card. I would love to upgrade it, but for my current sound setup this does the job. Not only is it good for my music but for my games nothing but 5.1 will do. This card ships with support for all the latest Dolby technolgoes as well as DTS. This card can output 7.1 over analog and 5.1 over SPDIF using Dolby's Digital Live technology.
It got the job done and was better than the onboard audio, but the software is horrible and I hate it. On windows 10 one of the applications associated with it comes up with errors every time windows reboots. The only fix I could find from searching the net was to disable the offending app in msconfig.
Also the inputs on the back of the card are all gold so when youre reaching down and trying to plug your speakers back in with a flashlight through bunch of cables, its effectively trial and error.
Going forward I will spend money on a motherboard with a decent onboard audio before dealing with this anymore.
