    That uses the C-Media 8770 chipset which has much more mature drivers then the 8788. Maybe someday when the 8788 drivers mature I can recommend something with that, but until then I just cant.

    Get the HT Omega Striker, you wont be disappointed.
    Do you know if it works for 64 bit natively, or will I have to use ndiswrapper?

      snd-oxygen is part of the c-media support for oxygenhd, but xonar uses a separate snd-virtuoso kernel module which is included and working in intrepid ibex out of the box, btw, does anyone with the xonar had experience mixer problems when changing volumen? I can't believe i'm the only one with this huge bug...

        ndiswrapper has nothing to do with soundcards.

          Please recommend a sound card:

          Among these:
          M-Audio Revolution 7.1
          Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Xtreme Audio
          Asus Zonar DX 7.1
          Auzentech X-Plosion 7.1
          Creative Sound Blaster Audigy SE 7.1
          Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Xtreme Gamer
          E-MU 1212M
          or used Creative Sound Blaster 4 or 2ZS (or 2 Value)

          I can find the Asus Zonar DX 7.1 and Auzentech X-Plosion 7.1 locally for around the same price. It's for a 2nd machine. I am contemplating either one of those cards v.s. buying a used Audigy 2ZS or Audigy 4.
