Although I didn't buy it for DVD Audio I picked up a Audigy2 nx when I moved my room around. I separated my PC from my receiver by about 20' and wanted 5.1 for games I play on the projector. I didn't want to run six audio cables 20' so I got the Audigy.
I run it via a 30' USB2 cable to my Pioneer receiver. I play through a set of Athena Micra's
Once set up I decided to test DVD Audio so went down and bought and old favorite (being an old guy) Hotel California. I was amazed. I then balanced the speakers via the Audigy with a rat shack sound level meter as the receiver just passes through the 5.1.
It really sounds good. The album also has a dolby digital track and I compared the two. No comparison. As a result I have been buying music again for the first time in a long time.
The one problem with the audigy is it does not play the higher sampled stereo track only the 5.1 DVD-A track, but that sounds good to me.
