Once you will get it working you will start playing with the DSP thing and you will keep it.
It s a little strange in the beginning ,but the sound is better than with the other drivers.
And the inter-user support forum is quite nice ,you will get answers to any issue quite easy.

Of course you need to test all drivers to make an idea of whats the best in your usage scenario.

Have fun!
Daniel K drivers, I am dissapoint -_-

So, I was at Desertbash X this weekend and after about an hour of messing with the driver settings I could not get my headset to work properly. There was no sound coming from my left headset speaker and microphone was not receiving anything. I ended up uninstalling and using on-board sound.

I am going to give this card one more chance with the drivers you recommended before decide to sell the damn thing.

I've used this same sound card up till this year. Really isn't that bad of a card all things considered. I recently decided to say hell with soundcards all together and did an hdmi 1.4 to a stereo receiver setup. Receivers > sound cards period

If you really love the sound of games and movies, I strongly urge you to save your pennies and do a setup like this the sound is night and day. I'm a really big audiophile when it comes to quality of the sound in my games and movies.

It may be possible that the card to go bad.Try and change some of the capacitors from the cards voltage supply stage if you are able to (if the KX drivers don t work properly too).
Try more KX builds , if the first you try has something that you don t like.
Good Luck!
