Ok, I have the 6.1 sound card and someone here mentioned something about the DSP chip. What I find strange is the following.
Fortissmo III has the CS4624 chip
The Digifire 7.1 has the CS84624 chip
The XP Theatre 7.1 has the CS4624 chip
**The XP Theatre 6.1 has the CS4630 chip
And if you look here, http://www.cirrus.com/design/product...etail.cfm?d=42
is indicating the 4630 is an updated version of the 4624 chip, so then I ask you, are we screwed with the XP Theatre 6.1 having a chip which Hercules doesn't put on any of their new cards. Makes me wonder why they are outputting new cards with the lesser DSP module on it...
reason being I want to get my dad one but not necessarily the one I have seeing how the DSP on mine doesn't seem to exist on any of the newer cards.
What are your thoughts, please.
