Hmm... I don't think there's a lack of competition in the sound card market sector. C-Media makes far better APUs, in my opinion. Creative might
have a certain edge in gaming, but this kind of specialization isn't enough to cover up the product's deficiency in all other areas.
I do believe, though, that Creative has definitely got the loudest marketing presence. Loudness seems to be the only virtue they have, in fact...
