I am considering buying the Creative Recon3D for 48 euros (it's on sale where i live) and i have some questions. My current on board soundcard is the Alc 898 and the main reason i want to buy the Recon3D is because of it's headphone amp and the optical input. I just want a way of converting the sound from my ps3 to full surround on my logitech x540 while also being able to quickly switch between headphones and speakers.

Now the problem is that i haven't seen much positive stuff about the Recon3D and i am worried that the sound quality might be a step back from the 898. Will i notice a difference or is the Recon3D the same or better regarding sound quality?
