    Poor Manual, had trouble setting it up. After hours of trial and error it works fine. I wish you could switch from 2 speaker system to optical output system without having to unplug from back of card each time you want to switch. Program software is poor and limited.

    This is the simplist piece of computer equipment that I have ever installed
    Put it in a X4 slot, connected the speakers and turned on the machine Win 7 64 bit.
    The drivers loaded and the job was finished!

    When this product was first introduced under Windows XP it was able to record internet streams. When the drivers were updated to Windows Vista and Windows 7 the "What You Hear" option was NO LONGER INCLUDED. Therefore you will be paying full price for a card that only does half the job. This card is so limited in function software wise that you would do just about as well with the integrated audio on your PC or another card. I found this out after paying to have this installed in my new Dell PC. Had I known this beforehand, I would not have bought the product. Please don t support SoundBastards by buying a product that only does half the job. Teach them a lesson in the pocketbook.
