The Soundblaster Audigy SE 4L PCI Sound Card from Creative Labs is a PCI expansion card for your computer that is capable of much better sound output than the integrated motherboard sound card that many computers ship with today. The Audigy SE features 24-bit Advanced HD audio, EAX Advanced HD 3.0 sound effects and up to 7.1 channel audio output. These features respectively enhance music, games and movies, making this an excellent computer upgrade for anyone who cares about the quality of their computer's audio system.

Music
The sound card features 24-bit Advanced HD audio, bass boost, smart volume management, audio clean-up and 7.1 CMSS surround sound technology. These features greatly enhance your listening experience when playing CDs or MP3 files on your computer.
Games
The EAX Advanced HD 3.0 sound effects will transport you directly into the game you are playing. Most modern games support positional audio, which means that you can hear an enemy player coming from behind you before you can see him. This sound card will give you the extra edge you need to compete in competitive gaming environments.
Movies
You can enjoy all your favorite movies in 5.1 or 7.1 surround sound when using the Audigy SE. You'll be amazed at the difference that surround sound makes when watching the latest Hollywood DVDs.

      I had been using the integrated sound IO on my computer. I recently began backing up some old audio tapes at 192K, but it didn't sound very spectacular. I compared online specs from my Intel board sound to the Soundblaster and went to B&H to buy one. It sounded spectacular the minute I played back my first 192K backup. Sold!!!

      Did not work with Windows 7

      I bought two of these, and neither worked on two Windows 7 64-bit installations. After hours of trying, I am giving up.

            B&H is the place to go for any of your video, audio, computer or software needs. I'm from Pa and have never seen a set up like B&H has. The staff is so helpful and knowledgeable, and the shopping and checkout system so futuristically efficient, they should be running the country!

                      I have a mother board that isn't quite Windows 7 compatible. The sound card was a problem. Added the Soundblaster and I have sound again. I didn't realized how 'not good' the sound I was getting was until I heard the same speakers with the Soundblaster. Still exploring all the options that didn't even exist on my old sound card.

                        Looking for an inexpensive card with a good sound in games, video and music? This is what you need. You will not be disappointed to feel the difference with built-in sound card. Especially there is a difference in the headphones of good quality. I did not know about the sound effects in some games, until installed Soundblaster Audigy, as my old built in card had not played them.

                            Do a lot of video editing and needed something better than onboard audio.

                            This card installed easily and updating the software was easy as well.

                            Sound is great, no issues what so ever

                                    Comments about Creative Labs Soundblaster Audigy SE 4L PCI Sound Card:

                                    The Creative website advertised this product as supporting Win2k, BUT niether the driver nor applications on the installation CD support Win2k. I have spent hours on at Creative's customer support technical website discovering the compatable driver and supported applications, and waited through several rounds of 1 or more days waiting for the tech support email to answer software compatability questions. When finally installed, the microphone-in function was inadequate to support my headset for voice-to-text and for voice user-interface commands for Dragon Naturally Speaking 10 and I ended up buying a USB mike and bypassing the card. The card works fine for listening to movies with headphones.
