View Full Version : Audigy 1 to Audigy 2: Worth the upgrade?

08-04-04, 08:53 AM
I've got an Audigy 1 Gamer, sounds great, no problems at all with it. I don't plan on using a 7.1 speaker setup, in fact I'll be getting a 5.1 system very soon. I primarily use my computer to play games, though I do listen to music on it quite a bit (prog, jazz, and rock mostly). People rant and rave about Audigy 2 like it's the second coming or something, so I was wondering if there would be any noticable difference by upgrading.

Depends on how good your ear is really and how good your speakers are? The Audigy2 ZS has 108/106dB SNR, which is I believe a lot better than the Audigy 1. If your just looking for better performance, I wouldn't bother. Yours is more than good enough, especially if you aren't going to use 7.1.

Thanks, that answers my question perfectly.
