I dont game. It has PC software, sounds epic and fits in / around my monitors

I went into it looking to find fault because it had Creative on the box.

They won me over and I put them on my main rig.

Id happily buy them if I have to btw.

I'm thinking of just going back to the Asus Essence STX II as I know it's decent and I won't be gambling with £300.

I can't answer for Tom but I can put my 2 cents in.

I ended up buying the Creative X7 external AMP/DAC AND the Sound Blaster X AE-5 soundcard, I eventually sold off the X7 and kept the AE-5, REALLY impressive piece of tech.
