This is a stunning sounding sound card, near audiophile quality. Crisp, clear, well balanced with plenty of amplifier power. Games sound amazing in virtual surround sound from the cards sound processing processor. It has to be one of the best soundcards in the market right now and I'll repeat the card does truly sound amazing. I'm only selling due to PC case modifications that will require me going external.
