Bought this card new about 6 years ago. According to everything I could find out about it, it was considered top shelf.Installed it in a cheap system running Windows 7 and bought a set of Logitech 5.1 speakers, don't remember the model number, and wow! That card blew me away. Between the absolutely clean and realistic sound the card produced and the quality of the Logitech speakers it was killer. Surround sound for movies was dead on and extremely engrossing. After my divorce, yea and I bet there are a few other guys that can say this, I did get to keep the computer. Times change though and when I eventually landed I had a Gateway 66** Desktop running Windows 10 just fine. But the Auzentech is giving me troubles. There are 3 modes the board will operate in and I always choose the entertainment mode. There are several speaker selections and I always choose 5.1. It's good for music or surround sound video. If I have to restart my system the board selects Game mode and 2.1 speakers. I try and reset it to my favorite controls and sometimes it works and sometimes it crashes. I am adjusting these settings from the control panel that is supposed to load at start up but does not. If I go thru all the selections it crashes and I get the close program window. If I get past that without a crash I select console, which is also supposed to load but doesn't. I have to readjust the bass and treble every time as they are reset at the neutral point. Once I get everything set it's like the good old days. But if I have to restart for any reason, I have to go through all that set up again. Got the latest drivers available. Am I beating a dead horse? It really WAS a great sound board.
