I didnt had any other Asus Soundcards yet, but I can tell you that the Strix (in my case the DLX) is a really good card and especially made for Gaming. For me its worth it.

Unfortunately I cant tell you if the Phoebus is better, I never had those. But if you dont mind spending the money, no matter if you are still happy with your Creative, go for it. I dont think you'll regret it.

Really I have 0 issue... And usually when someone sell such thing only to try something else... problems start.
Probably because I use oldest driver for SBZ from CD and I didn't change on every driver change.
Some people claim Phoebus Solo is better, some people SBZ is better.
Than these cards are launched and I don't know is it better or not than Phoebus Solo.... I don't need these extra features.
OK If someone near me upgrade on Strix Soar I will borrow on 48h to try.

Sure, the Creative drivers arent the best, but no driver doesnt help if the System doesnt recognize the Soundcard. Check Google, how many you find with the same issues. With my last Mainboard it worked at least sometimes, now with my new one its not at all. And I tried all the supposedly "tricks and tips" out there, nothing helped.

So the Creative is over for me. Regrettable, but that doesnt change the problem. But I am happy for you that it works. wink.gif

If someone have problem with not recognize sound card I have one tip and maybe that help.
That happen with my previous Z77 motherboard sometimes but because I very rear turn off PC I didn't pay attention on that problem.
When I cross on X99 that problem gone. But many people on different platform had similar problem.

After someone turn off PC he recognize than no sound and when try to open Sound Manager he report that can't find device. And device manager usually read wrong Sound Blaster Z as Recon3D...
In such case must be done exactly this.
1. Uninstall all creative software and turn off PC.
2. Remove Sound Blaster Z card from PC
3. Enable PC without Sound Blaster Z card inside
4. Clean with CCleaner and all Creative folders delete, temp files delete, registry search from Creative files and delete
If someone Creative folder rest in C, User, Username, Appdata, Local delete them to... Best with Driver Sweaper in Safe mode to search for Creative folders and to clean them. CCleaner usually find lot Creative traces under Registry Issues, clean that too.
5. Disable PC and Install Sound Blaster Z
6. Enable PC and Immediately after Windows Boot, you will see that Windows recognize new hardware as High Definition Audio or similar but not as Recon3D, Install Creative Software/Driver for SBZ, don't restart PC again with SBZ inside before driver installation, only after driver installation finish and ask to restart.

After that SBZ will work until someone turn off PC again on several hours.
Sometimes not, but sometimes yes.


Everything depend of motherboard BIOS and CREATIVE Drivers.
They didn't work together good and people on some platforms no matter on brand or chipset have problems. I done this procedure at least 20 times for 3 years. After I cross on X99 I don't have similar problem any more.

Thx, but I tried all these things before. Quite a few different so called "solutions" for that on the Net, but still nothing worked. I am done with Creative now. Hopefully other people have more luck with solutions such as this. wink.gif

I had a result and managed to get one off ebay when they had their 20% off code for a few hours. Strix Raid DLX for £116.81 delivered.

Have it installed and sounds very good coming from a SB Zx.

Sound quality of RAID DLX compared to ZXR or STX II ?

Virtual Surround on these Strix is better than Dolby Headphone ? How is compared with SBX Pro ?

That's what I wanted to know too, still we have no answer from reviews too, hard to get from a new device.

https://www.computeruniverse.net Deliver to Israel , but omg the costs are crazy. Man00k got it for £116.81 . for me if it's Net final amount for shipping outside the EU € 200.67 and that's excl the taxes and duties ! unbelievable cheaper to order a car.
