Hi and thanks for this driver.
It works great and even 6- and 8-Channel-Output is supported now.

The only two little things I noticed are:
1. Most programs are looking for "surround51" to use for multichannel
sound. But this driver only provides the "default"-Device (in it's
description it says:

aplay -L
    Creative X-Fi, Front/WaveIn
    Default Audio Device


2. I can hear a gentle grumbling out of my speakers. But nothing serious.
