Thank you. I'm sceptic regarding to some reports in German.
This card seems to have a very good price-performance ratio, the
customer are satisfied, but they also mention that the sound quality has
limits. And it's an Envy24 card. It's correct, this chip doesn't cause
sound issues, but at least with Suse and Ubuntu they don't work OOTB any
more, since PulseAudio cause trouble. For Maverick there were more
issues, then for Suse 11.2 and Lucid, so even if the converters and
op-amps are ok, Envy24 cards cause issues, resp. PulseAudio does.
