Looking for sound to replace my nf2 soundstorm

Recommended Posts

I have my sound go through my pioneer reciever with surround sound speakers. Do the creatives x-fi i hear so much about allow this with all its new features to be passed to my reciever? IF i got one and still used the sdif out woudl i only get stereo?

X-FI is probably the best card on teh market right now, and has optical SPDIF output so it will work in any receiver that can handle optical SPDIF inputs.

 

since the X-Fi is 7.1, if your receiver is capable of digital 7.1 you shouldn't have any problems

I read that "Rage3D" review of the Auzentech card, and it sounds like a great product at a reasonable price!

 

DDL is the main reason I'm still using my A7N8X-E Deluxe for most of my websurfing, as streaming audio through the Soundstorm is still the best.

 

This sounds like the best combination of a "gaming" card and "audio" card I've seen in a while. I'd definitely try one of thse in my HTPC - my Chaintech AV-710 does a good job in that role (just music and movies, no gaming) , but it's also got a lot of limitations.

 

EDIT: Just happened to see this - card is $99 after MIR at ZipZoomFly;

so if i will get out 7.1 from the x-fi why or how does it benifit at all do have the soundstorm with digital encoding? If any of the output ports on say audigy or x-fi does the same. What am I missing. IN a game say bf2 will the x-fi passthough give me the 5.1-7.1 i want to hear where bullets and footsteps are comming from? I don't watch movies on my pc so i am not concerned as far as that is. But i may in the future.

 

Please enlighten me and thanks for all the advice so far.
