  • I've aquire this card for running my HPTC (notebook dell 9400, NAS) either under windows xp, or Linux

    The Sound Blaster Audigy 2 ZS Notebook also provides encompassing 7.1 surround sound for Dolby® Digital EX as well as DTS-ES™ supported DVD movies; any DirectSound3D games and CMSS 3D virtualized 7.1 stereo music. Gamers will love the hardware accelerated EAX® 4.0 ADVANCED HD™ that not only brings games to life, but delivers maximum performance! Musicians will also enjoy true 24-bit recording and low latency ASIO support for the ultimate audio recording platform.

    if youre are using windows, i strongly recommend You to install all tools from the cd, instead of jumping directly to the website of creative to download the latest drivers: a lot of tools are not available in support section!!! speaker settings, THX console...for naming a few

    If You're using Linux, You will be happy to hear that Creative is supporting and hosting a page on their server for open source system:

    Creative has also create a project on sourceforge: emu10k1

    I am pretty sastified with the quality of this card, especially if you use the optical output (not so much cables floating around). I will have to test it further (under windows)
