Damn. I am not going to be happy about the price down here in New Zealand, but it's not going to stop me purchasing the ZxR

The review looks good - http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16829102048

 

I am looking for a better card than my sub $100 Xonar DX. It served me well so far until some BluRay movies and 320Kbps sounds are lacking in clarity, even I tweak it. The whole sound become muffled. I can't push it any further without distortion.

 

High-End headphones and speakers need a good sound card. So it's time, late xmas present for myself. I think ZxR should release in mid Jan.

Just picked up a Pioneer SW-8 for my computer to match my Creative T40's. Now can I use those RCA connectors with my new Pioneer???

Sounds good, I'm using a Creative X-Fi sound card, and don't like the fact its a RCA to 3.5 to plug it in :\

Once you plug it in, you will never know it is there or was plugged in that manner. That is simply a non-issue.
