Upgrade SB Audigy ES to SB Audigy 2 ZS or not?
Hello,
I have Sound Blaster Audigy ES. It is worth to upgrade to Sound Blaster Audigy 2 ZS? I use my PC to watch HD movies and listen to lossless music (wave, flac). For movies I use 5.1 and for music 2.1 speakers configuration. Will I notice any difference after upgrade? I don't use software for music production. Only HD/lossless playback.

AFAIK,  these cards only have full support in WinXP.  Anyway,  the 2 ZS has a better DAC.

I don't use original Creative drivers, only kX Audio Drivers. The main question is still the same. Is there a audible difference between these cards?
