Long time reader but I rarely post. However when I saw this I felt compelled. I have used SB cards for YEARS. However, I won't anymore. As amazing as the hardware is the software is equally bad. I routinely have issues with my AE-5 and most SB cards before it although this one is the worst. As a matter of fact ,right now, I cannot use my headphones unless I reboot my machine with the driver set to headphones.
