This PCI-e soundcard works well in Windows 7.

I have read many reviews, and being a certified PC Technician, I can say that many of the users are probably not experienced enough to properly deal with finicky PC hardware.

When dealing with sound and sound hardware issues, it is best to DISABLE the existing sound device built into the main board in the BIOS/CMOS (Setup, or boot to Windows and go into Device Manager and disable the sound devices before installing this card.
Many times the existing hardware may interfere with the new card installed.

This card comes with a "daughter card" that uses another space in the rear of the PC and attaches onto the main soundcard using a little ribbon cable. This will allow you to use all the features if desired.

The Main card (the one with the PCI-e tabs on it) has three 1/8" and using it in conjunction with the daughter card will give you the 7.1 surround sound function.

This card can be used in what I call "simple mode" where you just install the single Main Card into a PCI-e slot and use it without the daughter card for simple 2-channel stereo sound.

I had no pops, clicks, noise, or degraded sound. Everything was just fine for a soundcard of this price and quality.

If you have problems with this card, chances are you need to disable your old existing hardware that may be causing a conflict, or you just shouldn't be "messing with" computers in the first place - lol!

To disable sound device using Windows DEVICE MANAGER:
1. RIGHT-Click on MY COMPUTER or COMPUTER. (Right-Click, not left!)
2. Select PROPERTIES from the pop-up menu.
3. Select Device Manager link (or Hardware tab in Windows 98/XP and then Device Manager)
4.

This card works fine for outputting an already encoded 5.1 signal over optical TOSLINK to my Pioneer AVR, e.g. from a video file already containing a DTS soundtrack through XBMC or Plex. However, it will not output surround over optical for most games (falls back to stereo). I did not realize this when I ordered it, but (apparently) to get 5.1 from most games you need to have a Dolby Digital Live / DTS Connect compatible card like the ASUS Xonar DS 7.1 Channels PCI Interface Sound Card I ordered to replace this one.

I needed this card to use 5.1 over S/PDIF (digital). I was worried it doesn't support it and would only do two channels, but alas, it works!

I noticed however that it would produce sound out the analog port (3.5mm for headphones) when digital mode is selected, however it's much quieter. I keep my headphones unplugged so this is not an issue for me but if people have sound-sensitive tech (ie auto-turn on) that may be an issue.

It's great for headphones, it produces a lot of sound and I'm almost certain I would be able to blow my headphones with these. I usually keep it around 10-20%. This is a huge plug for me personally, I hate it when you're able to hit the max volume when you're jamming out.

-1 star because at higher volumes when listening to nothing, there's a TINY bit of static over analog. It's really nothing too much, you won't notice it during quiet songs and it doesn't distort any sound.

This card works nicely in my Windows 7 desktop. Win7 recognized the device and installed the appropriate drivers automatically with no fuss. I only installed the the main card. This enables SPDIF output (Toslink cable), and analog stereo output (headphone jack connector.) I didn't install the daughter backplane (included with the card) since I don't need the functionality those extra ports provide.

Details.
This card fits in a PCIe x1 slot. It also fits and works in the physically larger PCIe slots (x4, x8, etc.) and will simply leave open the portions of the slot the card doesn't use.

(Important.) Before installing, I modified my motherboard's BIOS settings to disable the audio built into the motherboard. This helps avoid hardware conflicts between the two audio devices. I can't help but wonder if this might be a cause of the flakiness some other reviewers described.

Great little card. Grab the generic VIA Envy24 drivers from VIA's website, and away you go! The only problem I have with it is that the instructions do not tell you the proper orientation of the cable for the daughter board. If Windows can't start the device when you first try, you know you got it wrong, and just power off and fix it.

Pros: Good sound quality, dirt cheap, and good features.

Cons: Not the best instructions, but if you get it wrong the first try, no harm is done.

My on board sound would crash often. Sometimes I would be in the middle of a game and the sound would pop out, reducing my game to "windowed" mode instead of full screen with no sound. Threw this card in and noticed it was still having a problem even after disabling on-board in the BIOS. Needed to disable on-board sound driver from device manger too and all has been well since.
