    New but still no WHQL certification and to be quite honest--no improvement
    in functionality from previous version for me.

    I can't say the same. I have an X-Fi Fital1ty and when I install the Dec.
    drivers I usually receive a BSoD shortly after. Then Vista usually didn’t
    run for squat after that. So far I haven't had any issues. Plus there are
    a bunch of added features:

    X-Fi Crystalizerâ„¢
    X-Fi CMSS®-3D
    MIDI Playback
    EAX® Effects
    PCM stereo output through optical out
    Line-in connectivity
    Recording capabilities

    They're not for everyone but plenty of people are going to be glad that
    these are back.


    This driver does not support the following:

    Decoding of Dolby® Digital and DTS™ signals
    DirectSound®-based EAX games
    6.1 speaker mode.
    SPDIF passthrough is supported on Vista 32-bit only.
    Applications from the original Sound Blaster X-Fi CD will not work with this

  5. Yep! The are no Dolby support, but after installing AC3 codec I have Dolby
    5.1 sound in movies…
    But how about games…?

    Get The Creative Alchemy for EAX support in older that use Drirect 3d sound.
    It's a patch solution but its working fine for me.
