Yeah good luck with that current Xonar driver support. Asus isn't even trying anymore, not since their lame W8 attempt at drivers.@rtwjunkie
Had 5 different creative cards, all failed with the left channel having less output when below 1/5-1/4 of total volume.
Crackling noise on 2 when changing volume.
Not even talking about their driver support
(no, Daniels drivers dont count).
Unless its a card above 100$, i wont get anything from creative anymore.
the asus xonar dgx/dx are cheaper, and most the time will also sound better...
Your experiences are yours, not attributable to the vast majority of Creative cards in the last ten years. Anecdotal, so to speak.
Indeed, Creative has been supporting X-Fi with constantly updated drivers for ten plus years now. I expect they will get around to Windows 1709 at some point too. The real problem is MS that changes to a new OS every 6 months now.
