I bought this to use with a pair of Roccat Kave 5.1 surround sound headset and it sounds awesome. My speakers are only stereo and i have them plugged into the headphones port. I can switch between the headphones and speakers without unplugging everything which is very good. Games, movies and music all sound good. Good upgrade from onboard sound which had a buzzing in the background
Doesn't sound much different to the creative sound blaster recon 3d which is cheaper. It is better though but you need to really listen to notice.
