Everything works and sounds great once I figured it out. The instructions that came with it made it sound simple, plug this here, plug that there and (viola!) you're up and running. Don't believe it. After checking the Creative website for troubleshooting tips (again, no help), I stumbled upon the answer on my own. Using Windows 7, I went into the Control Panel, then Hardware & Sound, then the Sound option, where I had to select the Sound Blaster Wireless card as the default sound option. That redirected the sound from my computer speakers to the Blaster transmitter. I had to then reposition my computer in my home office so that my kitchen (with its big appliances) weren't directly between the transmitter and the receiver in my family room before the reception improved. But it does now work as expected. The lesson here is that, if it is made to sound simple, you can bet it is anything but. But if you know about changing the default playback device to the Blaster USB card, then make sure your transmitter won't have big obstacles (like metal appliances) between it and the receiver(s), you'll be fine.

Now, in theory this is a great device and it's really easy to setup: plug in the stick into the USB Port, hook to the receiver to your Audio System, press the connect button. Driver installation from CS is only needed if you want some of the advanced settings or things like listening to incoming sound from a Microphone. When it works, it is a really great device. Sadly for me, most of the time it doesn't work, the connection drops constantly for a fraction of a second which gives the sound quality of a radio that loses it's tuning all the time. The distance between the USB Stick and receiver is about 6 Meters, with no walls in between, only a wooden desk and human body. I do not know if the Wireless LAN is interfering, but that works perfectly fine. Overall, I had to replace it with a cable again.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Having used a myriad of devices from the squeezboox boom and the squeezebox duet system -- as well as a few other devices that are not worth mentioning, I'll say that this is by far the easiest to use, install and operate.

Let me walk you through my set-up ... which took about 10 minutes ...

1. Unpacked the box and did away with all the plastic detritus.
2. Installed and registered the software on my laptop.
3. Plugged in the transmitter to a USB port in the back.
4. Rebooted my laptop, turned on iTunes and played a U2 album.
5. Plugged in the receiver (using a nicer set of cables) to my Sony Stereo Receiver on Aux 3. Was tempted to go optical.
6. Hit the find button on the underside of the little device and walked away.
7. 15 seconds later -- music played.
8. Stuck the batteries in the remote and turned it up.

That simple and absolutely no stumbling blocks to speak of.

Sound Quality? -- Better than I expected for this, but I wasn't looking for Mark Levinson to come out of my office and sit down on the couch with a glass of wine. The sound quality is more than adequate for casual home listening and the better your system is, the better the device will sound to you.

Responsiveness? -- I'm constantly unplugging the transmitter from my laptop and taking off somewhere, only to come back replug it back in, and find it working almost instantly and flawlessly. Windows and iTunes are not always asking questions or looking for drivers. It seems that whatever iTunes needed to do to make this thing be compatible with itself, was worked out ahead of time by Creative Labs and Apple. That's a first.

The Software -- is quite good and quite simple.

Well, the product its fantastic. Very easy to use and once you connect the transmiter is ready in seconds.

There is a BIG BUT. It happens that this system don't let other wireless work. I have tested everything and it happens that the signal of the Creative is very strong and don't let any other wireless device transmit.
I have a modem-router. When sound plays the speed drops almost 30 times and doesn't work. Even fails sometimes. You remove the creative everything comes to normal.

I've changed channels, everything, but its just the device the problem.

So, if you have a wireless network at home, forget about having internet and music at the same time. Look else where.

I was excited to be able to play Pandora on my home stereo. I intended to use this on my laptop along side my Linksys wireless A+G pcmcia card that communicates with my Linksys wireless router. Unfortunately whenever I had the Soundblaster card transmitting I could no longer pick up the signal from my wireless router. I did try assigning different channels on my router and the Soundblaster unit but with no luck. Creative customer support said there should be no issue so I suspect they have tested mutliple configs where this was not a problem but I couldn't get it to work.

When I played content from my laptop as opposed to trying to play an internet stream it sounded good. Great idea if you can get it to work in your wireless environment.
