Program covers your sound card's drivers and is rather difficult to remove. Uninstalling it won't undo the damage and if you have features that come with your sound card (equalizer and what not) it will disable them. Program gets really wonky when using a USB headset and if you have a gaming headset with separate channels (game/chat) it will use the Chat volume; so you can kiss Mumble/Teamspeak/Ventrillo/Skype good-bye while you're playing the games. They also have their own equalizer set-up and bass boost stuff but want you to pay a premium for it. Program is kinda cool, but for me it was nothing but bad news bears. If you -can- remove it, go for it, but expect to have a hell of a time as it leaves it's drivers behind during uninstall.

I've been using Razer Surround for a couple of months now. It creates a virtual surround system for your headphones. I've also found that it enhances the sound of my stereo speakers. Easy to set up, easy to use. I'm keeping it.
