I find that my preferring genre (Rock, Metal, Hardcore [Punk]) benifits from the X-Fi Crystalizer. The drums sounds much more lively and clean so does the whole acoustic spectrum. Maybe sometimes the bass should be a bit more present beneath the drum attacks but ok

Settings are:

X-Fi Crystalizer @ max.
X-Fi Expander @ off
Creative EP-830
mp3s mostly static @ 192 kbs - 320 [maybe vbrs sounds even better?]
loudness level 17/18 for full listen enjoyment
1.04.08 Firmware
I have found this too but unless i'm listening to iron maiden i keep it off.
The original firmware my x-fi came with made x-fi sound vastly different
