Wait a sec, WHY would you convert analog to digital--that kind of ruins everything about digital (sound quality, etc) except that you only need one cable to output it to a receiver or speaker system in 6 channels...

I just ordered my Game Theatre XP 6.1 and paid $146CDN for it which is about $90-95 US. The guy at the computer store suggested me an Extigy but I said NO WAY. Creative destroyed all the pioneers in sound. I'm from Quebec and uncreative labs destroyed Adlib, a company from Quebec. Then 3d sound appeared and Aureal had a big advance in 3d audio so creative sued them and made them close. That's why I'll never buy a creative card again.

I hope the Game Theatre is as good as all of you said. Thanx for all the replies.

Where did you buy it from, my buddy also wants to scrap his Audigy and get that card. Did you buy online somewhere? Unfortunately in Ottawa there doens't seem to be much choice other than Creative Labs junk. Lots of stores, all the same boring stock.
