I had to do a clean install and I cannot for the life of me get the Striker 7.1 driver to work correctly ended up using the on board P5K sound. With Windows 7 RTM

You tried the drivers available directly from C-Media (you would need the CMI8770 driver),

C-Media Company Information

no promises, but if it works about the only thing you lose is any control panel that installs with the driver from HT Omega, it will install the generic C-Media control panel (or at least should).

Window's 7 Ultimate 64bit

I will give it a try, and I guess you mean the Windows 7 RC drivers not Vista.

7600.20510 x86

MOTU Traveler firewire audio interface is great on Win 7. Today, I received a replacement for the one I broke through RMA and it's the first time I tried it with 7. Everything is up and running perfectly with the latest Vista x86 driver here. Glad to have quality sound capabilities again.

Windows 7 Ultimate (x64)

Regarding the Audigy 4, I think it should perhaps be mentioned in the first post that although the sound works great, the mic input does not work properly. I have tried loads of different drivers, including the ones from here :

Mondo Tech: ASUS P5B Windows 7 Audio Drivers and

I can get the mic to occaisionaly work, but then, without changing anything, it turns into a garbled mess and sounds awful. It seems to have been a well documented issue with the Audigy 4 on Vista as well.

Perhaps only fair to let folk know. I went and bought an audigy on the strength of this thread, and it is now sat idle on the windowsill.

Thanks for any support/help.

List of Sound Cards and Drivers that work:
-Creative Sound Blaster Audigy 4 (Drivers Located here)
-M-Audio's Delta 1010 LT soundcard with drivers made for Vista SP1, with Windows 7's compatibility program (All Delta series may work with Vista SP1)
-Asus Xonar D2 sound card works, Recording features may not work in some with some driver software.
-Sound blaster Audigy 2 SE works with the drivers from windows update
-Soundblaster live, only with kxproject drivers. WARNING: The windows update drivers give terrible sound.
Actually I've got a sound blaster live digital working in my system with the daniel k drivers and haven't had any problems with it yet.

Turtle Beach Audio Advantage SRM DOES NOT Work

The Turtle Beach SRM crashes the system. Cannot find what Chipset it uses to see if there is a workaround. No drivers from Turtle Beach thus far.

I second the soundblaster cards working with Daniel K's driver set, works wonders! I am using an X-Fi XtremeGamer edition.
