Would this be a worthwhile upgrade with the bookshelf speakers for someone that already has a Creative Soundblaster Z soundcard and Klipsch ProMedia 2.1 speakers? Everything I have cost me around $200-$250 originally so this at $400 would be a tough pill to swallow if it isn't all that much better. It just looks so cool though, lol.
I have the identical setup, plus a Beyerdynamic Custom One Pro, so I'm curious as well.
I only bought the card so I'd have optical in for a console, and that's no longer a necessity. I don't like the card because a) I've been burned by Creative's poor software support (used to own one of their Fatality cards), and b) it seems Creative went cheap again with shielding (or maybe something else) and I get hiss/pop/crackle from my speakers occasionally.
I think I'm probably going to get it because my current sound card has been finicky for the better part of a year. Hoping the the more expensive product gets better driver support so we'll see.
