Hello All,

Completing the picture is the inclusion of Dolby Audio decoding for any device supporting optical output.

The Sound Blaster GC7 is completely redesigned from the ground up to allow gamers to quickly access all onboard controls including GameVoice Mix for fine granular control of Game and voice priority as well as Surround/Bass/Treble effects. It is purposefully designed to match the angles of gaming and custom keyboards so that moving the southpaw from the WASD zones to the GC7 controls can be executed swiftly, even in the blind. A large and clear display shows the level of each effect without double guessing.

Multi gaming platforms are supported out of the box and with an optional HDMI to Optical Splitter, you can also hook up the GC7 to the latest Playstation 5, Xbox Series X and S consoles..

The best gameplay involves intuitive controls that support split-second decisions made while in the game. As the first in its series of premium gaming audio solutions for experienced gamers, Sound Blaster GC7 hands you the winning formula to conquer any game—the access to a plethora of programmable controls built directly on the device for quick switches when gaming.

Designed with convenience in mind, you can make on-the-fly adjustments to your game and chat volume mix with GameVoice Mix, tweak your audio and microphone settings, and switch quickly between different sound modes—all with just a button press.

Awesome! Signed up, thanks for organizing this! I would love to try it out; my AE-5 is great but it would be really cool to pull the card out and let my GPU get free air. I'm curious the quality of a USB DAC/AMP over a PCI card.
