Easy to set up (no problems with software at all)
clearer sound than onboard, which was ALC888,much more customizable sound than onboard.
Independent connections on back for everything except HDMI.
Quality optical cable provided
Front panel audio support
Makes my speakers seem inadequate.
I bought this card because of the immense praise HT Omega has received for both sound quality and lack of software hassles.
There are as many connections on the back as possible, with both optical and coaxial S/PDIF out and optical in. No combo ports. Tested on an Altec Lansing 2.1 set, which I feel I need to upgrade now.
If you game often I suggest an Auzentech or Creative for the X-fi support, but this card works well for music and movies.

-Sounds great
-DTS and DD upconverting
-Works in Vista x64
-Not the greatest control panel
-Have to switch audio input mode depending on source
Overall it's a good card. Works much better than the Auzentech HDA Xplosion which would rarely even install in Vista x64. Still it's based on the CMedia chipset and their control panel software looks extremely dated.

I use it on the Logitech Z5500s in DTS Connect mode so stereo audio is upcoverted to 5.1 DTS sound via optical. Works and sounds good.

However the only main annoyance is that if your listening to a stereo source, you should set it to 2 channel in the control panel. When listening to 5.1 audio (DVD etc) you should switch to to 6 channel for the full effects. Not the biggest deal, but they should make the software/drivers "smart" so it can switch automatically.

Experience: 5 Days
plays anythin you throw at it in dts,dd. comes with a quality optical cable. Optical in-out-digital coax.
price, back plate should be colorcoded as is hard to see when installed in the pci slot.
I know this is alot of money for a sound card. There are other cheaper cards with the oxygen chip but I opted for the claro. From reviews I have read they make an excellent product. Install easy, software is light and simple to use. Had a chaintech in my htpc hooked up to my sony receiver and this is 10 time better than the chaintech. I like the optical in - out and also has digital coax. It does anything in digital. Played batt2 in dig3/2 sounded awesome. Come with a opt cable as well. I have a aud2 in another rig and it is very good but wished it had the optical.
