Bah Map 5.1 is a classic:
- Line-
- Mic
- 5.1 digital output
- 3 analog outputs (front, back, bass)
It would have been cool to have a headphone output so you can connect both the HP and the headphone. I have a "T", but above, I have split the HP / cables to my living room TV. Apparently, there are filters on the output and the sound is not the same as the output before.
Otherwise, the 16/48 recording. It rises 24-bit read. On my old songs 44 khz is a hassle to convert (I know not how ...).
I use it with a latency <10ms
The card can manage soudfonts.

Use: Media Card and computer music as an amateur (Cubase VST and guitar)

Different notes:
- 3 / 10 for the pros to music (mainly due 16/48)
- 7 / 10 for my use (mixed use)

UTILIZATION

No problem to install. No inconsistency. It's ok

Reproach, to see what is the connection, you need good eyes! It is not obvious what is what mic, in, out ...

GETTING STARTED

All is well for now. Latency <10 ms without problems.
On my XP1800 + 512 MB Athlonx, I went up to 6 audio tracks + 2 and 3 VSTi plugiins smoothly.

For sound, I can not tell, I have not bought 5.1 and I play on 2 HP to 100 bullets at the moment ...

OVERALL OPINION

It's been three weeks that I have and I am very happy. I bought it in bulk version for € 85!!
The advantage: to learn about the computer music without latency for a good price without the KX drivers
His least: if I want to move more in Music, forget this card ...
Value for money: good considering the price (it's true that a SB Live can do better at this level ...)

I'm not disappointed at all by the Audigy 2 and I bought it despite the high number of negative comments (notably on AF ...) about this card. For what it serves me, c'st's all good.
