- Needed 5.1 on my laptop; this fit the bill $55, USB support for Win7.
Downloaded and installed beta Win7 drivers from Zalman no issues. Tried doing as previous poster suggested kept hanging my machine, opted for the beta choice.
- Once you figure which cables to plug into the unit and configure your sound there is nothing to it, only a little confusion.
- I'd recommend it to alnyone looking for same.
Awesome OS support, good features.

- - Individually controlled amplified analog outputs for fronts, rears, and center/sub.
- Windows 7 drivers worked Plug n play.
- Windows XP drivers (on provided CD) worked in Windows 7 and probably work in XP of course.
- Windows Vista drivers (on provided CD) worked even better.
- Coaxial / Optical digital output jack.
- Drivers provide DSP controls
- - not much; maybe the large size compared to others but worth tradeoff.
- slightly confusing install process. (Use Setup.exe in root folder on provided CD if using Windows XP. Use Setup.exe in VISTA subfolder if you are on Windows Vista or 7)
- This is the probably the best among all the available USB sound cards. Plugged this into my Windows 7 laptop, it worked right away, but I didn't have 24 bit / 96 kHz playback so I tried installing drivers from CD but chose the XP drivers unknowingly. They are better than the stock Windows 7 drivers but still didn't enable 24 bit 96 kHz. So I installed the Vista drivers using Setup in the Vista subfolder that did the trick. It also installs a control panel item: ZM-RSCC V2 enabling more tweaks
