  • A. Mota

    Finally i find a product that works on mac with 5.1 surround speakers. I'll recommend for those who need really good music playback on mac. After a couple days of listening I found myself really enjoying. The music became much cleaner. You won't be disappointed, really.

  • J. Wong

    Great sound at a great price. I am using a hifi grade earphone, and it sound truly different between using this and a computer default sound card. It can drive the earphone without problem, and enhance the clarity. A companion on my office desk everyday.

  • A. Dunn

    Excellent product, easy to install, simple to use, all the connections you require come in the package, setup in just a few minutes, and of course the famous creative labs sound quality. What more needs to be said. BRILLIANT!!

  • S. Hellsing

    Great! Works right out of the box. No drivers, only one cable to the computer. Delivers no fuzz 5.1 sound.

  • D. Rodrigues

    A fantastic little piece of equipment...huge in performance, both with speaker and spdif connection. Great sound. Without a doubt, it's worth the money

  • B. Bisares

    Much better than the built-in sound card on my laptop. More control over the output so I can get movies to sound exactly how I want. Also since I have online meetings a lot the microphone quality is much better. No more hiss and my colleagues say I sound much clearer. Good purchase.
