Thinking about purchasing the Creative Audigy 2 Platinum sound card that has 24 bit 192kHz DACs and comes complete with software which provides DVD-Audio playback at 2 channel/24 bit/192kHz OR 6 channel/24 bit/96kHz playback. Also processes Dolby Digital 5.1, THX-Ex etc... Has anyone tried this card yet? I am thinking it could become my surround sound processor and take the place of my pre-amp. Any thoughts?


Volume control could be handled via the included remote control and the software and the card could be analoged out directly to an amplifier. Aas far as I know this is the only card out there that supports DVD-Audio playback from a DVD Rom drive. Does anyone know of others?


I have been using a HTPC for 2 years now and am happy with it. Right now I pass through an SPDIF output in my current soundcard into my processor preamp (Marantz).


Any advice would be appreciated.
