I purchased the Extigy soundcard along with the Creative Labs Inspire 5.1 speakers when looking for improving the sound from a new laptop. Not only was the Extigy an big improvements compared to the old sound card, but I can listen to Mp3 and watch movie in true 5.1 Dolby Digital sound. The Extigy soundcard is designed for notebook or desktop users and it installs quickly and easily by USB. A remote control is standard. It also offers EAX ADVANCED HD music features such as Audio Clean-Up, Time Scaling and DREAM and can operate as a stand-alone Dolby Digital decoder for use with DVD players or entertainment consoles. Overall, sound quality is excellent, but when playing audio CDs you will encounter an occassional pop or skip in the music, this could be down to my laptop setup though. Of course, if you remove "digital audio playback" in your audio program you'll remedy this. Combine the Extigy with 5.1 speakers and you won't be disappointed. All in all, I love this product and it's worth for its price, I highly recommend it to everyone.
