Windows 7: Which sound cards DO have stereo mix for x64 Win7?

Which sound cards DO have stereo mix for x64 Win7?


I am reading a lot of complaints about the lack of "stereo mix" on many (most?) sound cards these days. My Dell Vostro with onboard Realtek also lacks this capability.

And yes - I've tried all sorts of drivers and unhidden, etc on the recording screen, etc, so I've decided I'll buy a PCI card that does do this (still). But which one? With which driver?

Please can anyone give specific guidance so I know what to buy?

I'm using an HT Omega "Striker 7.1" PCI sound card with Windows 7 64 bit. Works great and has the System Mixer function. Actually, I had a newer SoundBlaster Xfi installed but had problems and the Striker 7.1, that I pulled out of my old Dell Dimension E510, works better than the SoundBlaster.

It's available at newegg here - HT | OMEGA STRIKER 7.1 Channels PCI Interface Sound Card

One issue, and that is with ANY add on sound card. You will most likely lose the front panel headphone and mic jack capability. Dell uses proprietary (and undocumented) front panel connections on many systems (I do a lot of support on the Dell desktop forum).

If you buy the Striker 7.1 you will probably have to download the Win 7 64 bit driver from their web site.
