Mine is more focused on games but I do use it for music too.
Im at the last stages of a rebuild so I havent decided if im going to stay with the onboard or go back to x-fi or a newer sound blaster card.
I could also skip the sound card and stick to the USB Music Streamer II Dac for music.
System specs are
Intel i7 3820
EVGA X79 4-way SLI Classified motherboard
16GB DDR3 2133 XMP -RipJaw Z series
Vertex 4 SSD
XFX R9 290 in TriFire ( three video cards)
ABS 1100w BZ series PSU
Windows 7 64bit Pro edition
Three Acer 24" H233H monitors @ 5760x1080p
Custom full system Water Loop. CPU, motherboard, and videocards.
for Audio im using a Rotel Pre and Amp and some Free Bose speakers with a Sunfire Sub.

IMO, ASUS's Xonar cards are a better alternative to X-Fi.
