Accomplishments: When listening to music - the advantages are not found.
Limitations: Was blurred bottoms, high became more severe.
Comment: Bought read stuff about that integrated zvukovuha to listen to music no comparison with any external. On the total, compared listening to trance (Fluke) - high frequencies become sharp (apparently, this and many take for a more "clean sound), the lower classes have become a little "cardboard/flat." Probably, for some music, it all would be a plus, but not in this case. Subjectively, integrated ALC888/892(GA-P55US3L), it sounds more wholly - bottoms "deep soft"rather high not so much attention. Overindulgence equalizer until helped, apparently some kind of design feature of the card. Try to use parallel with built - in games, probably, the external card is a plus. PS: Reproduced through an external amplifier, speakers Radiotehnika S-30. Last week bought Microlab Pro3, thought replace radio technology - was not suitable for the music (continuous bumkane as a barrel), to see the movie again Nitsche so (on the DVD they remained connected). knew good music playback from a cheap technology is not worth waiting. And hackneyed phrase "good for its value" - "only means " bad, but cheap."
Accomplishments: 1 Good quality/price ratio for OEM version
2 the ability to significantly improve functionality of the card during the installation of alternative driver
Limitations: 1 No HD Audio connector front panel, there are only a proprietary connector
2 Manufacturer cut functionality in the driver for Windows Vista/7 compared with the driver for Windows XP
Comment: If the price is 700 rubles for OEM (Retail pay 300 rubles makes no sense) this sound card is a good option for replacing integrated audio. Sound quality is superior integrated solutions, but no more since the card cheap.
Installing the driver P17X functionality can be extended to the level of the X-Fi Xtreme Audio, which is almost a complete copy SE, they differ only in the DAC, the SE has Wolfson, and the Xtreme Audio is a Cirrus Logic, both chip about the same level and the difference in sound almost none. All effects will be software, as in younger X-Fi.
Map certainly old, but as budget replace the integrated sound perfect.
Accomplishments: Long doubted, that everything written about this map is a reality. Especially for that price. Well I thought that there is 720 p. not particularly "money," and worse precisely. Bought... 'll discuss in the comments)
Limitations: A small panic may occur when you install a wood, BUT the number of written reviews, where there is a download link chunks, calms you.
Comment: Audiokarta sends a signal through the three cables RCAx2-mini JACK acoustics Microlab X15, which initially did not impress me. In acoustics at the qual-e satellites are the "remnants" from DK SAMSUNG H5300, good DK, which later broke down, and the amount of repairs and blocked the cost of a new system 5.1 from mikrolabov. In General, after 10 minutes Tantsov with tambourine and settings channeling sound, I was SIMPLY SHOCKED!!!! My neighbour has a system Warfedale for 5 thousand greenery, and I will say that the SOUND they kachstvu VERY similar!!! But the biggest shock came when I launched mon Warfighter. Actually, once there went "batch" with shooting indoors. I could not get accustomed to flying around the bullet and sonorous rebounds only fragments of the game... But the sound was incredible... Instead of the planned 5 minutes in the game to check the sound, I played 3 hours...
I card is MORE than impressed!
Accomplishments: good card for your money, and given that it can be screwed firewood from the Creative X-Fi Xtreme Audio,and get a full set of track settings for the card ,and add Crystalizer.Zvuk on the score of 4 out of 5 (price and quality)
Limitations: Well, what can be disadvantages for the money,though native wood directly in the furnace
Comment: good card for your money only if you put the firewood from the Creative X-Fi Xtreme Audio,and you will be happy in music ,games and movies
Accomplishments: *Sound! A very tangible difference compared with the built-in card. Drill sound is just another planet. Changed my mind throw their columns ))) Even sub played dynamic! As you have already noticed, you receive the difference in hearing bitrate MP3. That is, 128, 160, 192, 220 - there is a certain difference between each of them, 320 - it sounds just great!
* the Price. For such an amount of positive emotions is very democratic.
Limitations: Disadvantages not found yet.
Too long installing the driver did that, but it is a trifle.
Comment: If you get energy from music, create her mood or just love beautiful sound - get a good sound card. Creative Audigy SE SB0570 is the one!
Accomplishments: Gives very good sound, this can be felt immediately. (Basiki better steel, other frequencies are also affected). But only native drivers(not difficult to find the right)
My second stay in full
Limitations: Only what you need to download the foster-driver and a little Tinker with settings(for example, if you are in the headphones, select the appropriate mode - Headphone, sound will change right away)
Comment: This sound card for those who simply want to improve the sound and music, and not pay for it much. Took today and while I do not regret. For all slightly less than 800 rubles Established nonnative rekomendovanyie wood, set up a little and all good! On Win 7.
On it no support OpenAl, it's sad, but my first tests in games, not much. In the battle 3 like everything is great, especially if you disable the sound settings in game some improvement in sound. About the wood download from Daniel K (it seems so)
links were in the other comments(P17X_SupportPack_2_7 )
Accomplishments: The price is not more expensive than 600 rubles in conventional stores, and the Internet is even cheaper. Acceptable price or sound, low-profile installation, a little background into the simple. Nothing superfluous in the configuration - charge technical packaging and disk, which should be immediately thrown out. Card is ideal for listening to heavy music.
Limitations: Perhaps the only ASIO, but it is already for a fee. If creative have made it here, their titaniumyi to 5 thousand failed. Also official drivers, but I wrote from Daniel's great!
Comment: Though multi-channel card, but the music was mostly listen through in-ear headphones Sony MDR-E828LP connected to assembled "usilku" of the old columns and other kulibinskih boards. Toggle switch on it vyikruchen fully, on the EAX 50%, on Windsurfing 20-25, so that the background is not walked. And immediately heard all the tools top not fall, one can even hear now unnecessary sounds, how sglatyivanie saliva singer, easy finger touching the strings of the well etc. Actually, I never spent a successful their 535 rubles, and now I leave it to something audiofilskoe in the style of the Xonar Essence or ESI.
Accomplishments: Great sound, best replacement for any embedded sound chip
Lowest price for a OEM version, for there is no sense to overpay for a box of almost 500 RUB
Limitations: No MIDI output
Comment: Took replacement Genius Sound Maker Value 5.1 and feel the sound is better. Use this sound card with good speakers/headphones, at least from 1000R
Download official driver from the manufacturer's website or informal P17X Series Support Pack 2.8 - much distinction between the Ob. and after her sword. the drivers I have not heard
Accomplishments: Excellent sound quality compared with AC97! Inexpensive price.
Limitations: A small minus - there were problems with the installation of drivers. But it doesn't characterize the work of the device :)
Comment: To purchase a card used onboard sound card with AC97. Good speakers, so the sound coming through the headphones less satisfied. But after replacement headphones realized that map was time to change. Bought a SB Audigy SE was shocked - all my music sounded different. The difference is great. This card is completely justifies its price.
Accomplishments: The sound really richer and better than integrated. I do not know how anyone, but I have with the included speakers from the built-in, when you turn on the computer, there is a "BACH" of the columns, and from Audigy SE, no :)
Warranty is 12 months.
Limitations: Somewhere in 7 months during normal operation (watched the movie, the sound disappeared and all. The main vinda sees it, firewood are installed, all settings are working, but no sound and all. Pereustanavlival firewood, perelazil all settings, changed the slot, but the sound and no.
Comment: Took warranty repair, warranty does not 6 months :))
Accomplishments: The main plus is undoubtedly tsena.YUzayu almost 3 goda.Nikakih kosyakov.Pereklyuchenie mouse headphones / external 5.1,very convenient.(actually, I had to dig deeper into the inete.Zvuk meets,although not audiofil,but music fans put down easily))
Limitations: Feel neraskryitost "scene".
Comment: Take boldly,if you do not audiofil,and you have a plug-in components to 500$. All the rest of it processes on a solid b + grade,taking into account their tsenu.YUzal on XP and 7.
Accomplishments: For such price - great quality sound.
Limitations: There is a need to use a non-native drivers, but they are immediately and for the price its lack perfectly acceptable.
Comment: Taken as a low-cost alternative to the built-in Realtek HD. On the subject of acoustics has always three opinions, so I will give my subjective: I don't listen to anything, but the difference is felt at once that for the price in 600rub just a holiday. Don't forget to unlock kristalayzer software from Daniel and rejoice.
Accomplishments: 1) Better sound quality compared with the built-in Realtek HD Audio
2) Low price
3) Support in Linux (alsa) -- core 3.6.5, 86_x64. All came in without problems (loadable kernel module -- snd-ca0106). With pulseaudio, too, there should be no problems, as normally as a backend he also uses alsa.
Limitations: 1) there is No official driver for Windows 7 (or I simply have not found).
P.S. Unofficial -- there, and even works, but I had to work out with him love, vyikovyirivaya unnecessary me thingies.
2) Lack for Windows users -- sound in Linux SIGNIFICANTLY better than in Windows. To test used VLC player with the same sound settings. Therefore music in Windows't like it(
3) an Annoying clicking (its volume varies depending on the file being played at the beginning and at the end of the play sound file (perhaps this is the problem with my card or motherboard). Of course, when listening to a movie or music, this does not prevent, and indeed not much, but in games very annoying unwanted clicks. Output -- listen to music, watch movies through Creative, and all the other delights of output via the built-in zvukovushku on the speakers.
Comment: This sound card will definitely glad not too demanding music lovers, as the sound quality beats integrated zvukovushku on all parameters.
