Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's a bit of a cheap'n'nasty card but all I was looking for was a way of having two digital outputs from my PC, one for my home theatre receiver and one for my stereo amp in the next room. This card has a digital optical output and a digital coaxial and was cheaper than buying an active optical splitter. Both digital outputs work simultaneously which is a bonus and since its digital there's no sound degradation - i can't speak for the analogue side of things because I haven't used it. Oh yes, I just let Windows 7 suggest a driver (CD didn't work), downloaded it and switched the playback device to make it default. No problem at all. I'm rating excellent because its a cheap way to get double digital output - the actual quality of the sound card audio isn't something I can comment on but given the build quality, I'd be surprised if you couldn't do better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I bought this card to replace a Creative Sound Blaster Live 5.1 Platinum that would cause video and sound drop out when AC3 was turned on in a media centre I built for my mate. XP detected it immediately but installed the wrong driver, once I'd installed the driver from the CD it worked perfectly and the Dolby Digital lamp lit on the Receiver. Great value card.

Hi I was told by the sales assistant that you can download latest drivers for this sound card from the typhoon web site. I need drivers for Windows 8.1. Can you supply the web address where I can download these drivers
Asked by: Bob Conley

Does this card ignore scms data bits?
Asked by: Richard
With SCMS bits being copy protection it is unlikely the unit would have the facility to circumvent or ignore said protection I am afraid
