Very true. Even "Audiophiles" (I hate that word) can't deny the sound quality produced by this card and other modern sound cards. Within the last year there have been many high definition sound cards released that are just awesome when compared with previous cards. It is great for people who are into PC based audio.Looks like a great piece of kit for a HTPC.
It's interesting how far computer audio has come in the last few years.
It's not that long ago that any true audiophile would turn his/her nose up at computer generated audio... now it seems like it's not only mainstream, but also getting to the point of cutting edge.
The LED's match the color coding of the jacks. So it is a "bling thing" but it has some functional aspects also.I really like the idea of lighted(colour coded) jacks. This would really make hooking and unhooking speakers and headphones a lot less painfull:thumb:
