Good to hear. I had thought that they could only decode DD.

I forgot to mention a few more questions I had about future connections. Are there going to be any digital coax connectors as inputs on the cards? Will the new digital audio over IEEE 1394 standard be supported (not the same as what's currently on the card for networked gameplay; what'll be used for high-bandwidth digital audio connection in home theater) and will there be a possibility that there is an input in addition to an output of that?

Good questions. Truthfully, I don't know what's going to be on the next Sound Blaster.

Thanks. I hope I don't seem too persistent with these.

Well this kind of is his job (well i'm pretty sure he's not doing this on his free time) so no.. help yourself ;)

Absolutely, J. This is my job, so keep the questions coming!
I sincerely don't know what;s happening with the new card, and I couldn't leak the info if I did.
NEWS: We just announced the Zen Touch on the website. It's our smallest Portable Audio player yet, and with some amazing features like a 24-hour battery. WOW!

I have a Sound Blaster 16 PCI and it sucks. =/ It's the truth. I wish I wouldn't of under estimated sound cards when I built my computer, I should have invested more into a half way decent one. Any suggestions...

yea.. get an audigy 2 oem.. pretty cheap and you don't need that extra drive (I got it because of 6.1.. the zs's support 7.1)

yea ive got a question... whats the advantage of having, say, a 500w 5.1 system as opposed to an 80w 5.1 system?

also, since im in the market for new speakers: how do i get the best quality, im not necessarily looking for LOUD loud, but i still want loud. i use my computer for watching alot of movies, so i want to get 5.1, THX, and whatnot, but i dont really know what all the acronyms mean, and the ones i do know, like square means root, just confuse me more. any help, or referral to where i can learn these things would be great. thx.

right now im using a set of justers with a subwoofer, the subwoofer plugs into my PC, and the speakers plug into the sub. in back i have my 150 SHARP shelf system... i have terrible bass quality. not sure how relavent any of that was..

i was looking a this one, and im stuck between the audigy 2 ZS and the Audigy 2 ZS platinum Pro... does the Pro have better sound quality, or just more features? i like the guitar inputs, do you know what size those jacks are?
