I have this card and I faced problem woth recording Voice and Music at the same time. eventhough when I am playing music or talking with mic on voice chat, my friend does not hear it with echo or 3D effects. I got upset about this issue. the mixer has 4 choices only. at Audigy 2Z my freinds could talk on mic and put the music as background. With this card I could not do it. please your advice !

Nice to see that you clearly point out that this card is NOT an actualy xFI processor. It took me a while to find that out (actually creative seemed to have encouraged reviewers and the folks who write their site to quietly allow people to believe it was a capable audio processor).. I think Creative should either be clear about what the card is, or should lose review points for misleading it's customers.

I bought the card and descovered that it's a decent quality ADC/DAC but no processing in hardware. What a shame, PCI express has so many possibilities. Anyway.. thanks for a fine review...

Also, in regard to the previous comment - my advice would be to use the native laptop card for the mic input for voice chat.
