Speaking of the M-Audio Revolution...CompUSA has it for $64.99 after rebate - see http://www.compusa.com/products/product_in...0197&pfp=SEARCH.  Hurry - got to buy it before 4/12/2003 to get the $35 rebate!  I just ordered one yesterday...should be here next week.

Hmm, that review actually makes me consider the Audigy 2.  I didn't know it was that cheap..  Here in Canada I've seen the Revo for $150, but the Audigy 2 OEM is $115.  And the Revo is alot slower for games; so disappointing they didn't add dsound acceleration, at least as good as the dmx 24/96.

Anyone know what type of spdif in/outs the audigy 2 (no breakout box) comes with?

Audigy2 OEM has three analog outputs (green, black, orange) and one digital output (red).

When you want to use the Revo 7.1 as a gamer you'll have to know that EAX seems to be only half-way implented.

EAX in ALL Bioware Games, from Baldur's Gate to Neverwinter Nights, is not supported. Too bad that these are almost the only games I play

The only game I have tested with this card and EAX works is Gothic 2.

That is strange, since Baldur's Gate is nearly 5 years old and Gothic 2 is from 2002.

...All music playback tests were conducted with a set of Philips MMS305 4.1 channel speakers...


Blah... my SB Live! also sounded better than the M-Audio Delta 410 using Klipsch Promedia 5.1 speaker set ($399). So putting sound cards through listening tests using a $150 4.1 set of speakers is like comparing different cars' performance on an ice surface.

Just found it couple of minutes ago. This should be the best review around.
