Can drive low-impedance headphones
Cons Microphone is soft on this card; headphone and front speaker outputs are not separate


Note I am comparing this sound card to an onboard Realtek ALC892, and I have not tested anything other than the microphone and front speaker output (2.1 speakers and headphones).

The included op-amps can drive low impedance (32 ohm) headphones properly, even at extremely low volume settings. My onboard sound however, did a much better job with the microphone as the boost on this card maxes out at +10dB. Additionally, the front speaker and front panel headphone jack are electrically connected, so plugging in headphones does not turn off the speakers. In fact, headphone and speakers can interfere with each other as they end up connected in parallel.

Small profile
Changable opamps
Cons No real digital PCM passthrough (downmixes to 2.0 stereo I think)


Bought this because my onboard sound decided to die. This was a cheap replacement and since I needed to use the PCI slot near the videocard (two slots away, but still) I wanted the small profile so that the video card would still be able to get some air

I swapped the opamps to some better TI ones (I forget the number, just google it) and it sounds AMAZING - like a $150 card for $20 shipped to my door in 3 days opamps.

Great value card. Recommended.

Works out of the box in ubuntu 10.10
Cons none so far


Wanted a decent card for my ubuntu 10.10 box and it was recognized instantly as the C-Media 8768 chipset and sounds great. All ports working.
