Hi, I'm currently looking to buy a new soundcard for my rig and came across the new z series from creative, which have very good reviews as of yet. I'm thinking of going with the zx but don't know if the zxr is really worth the extra 100 bucks. Thanks, Ben
depends on your speaker setup

Unless you have 600 ohm headphones or really high end speakers, the ZX will work well.
I have a ZXR and since I only have 150 ohm headphones, I am not using the card to its fullest potential either.
