The Creative Sound Blaster Extigy is one of the most amazing sound cards I have had the pleasure of working with. Being USB, I was a little hesitant if I would run into any stability problems, but those concerns no longer occupy my mind. During my testing, I experienced nothing but bliss.
My only gripe with the Extigy is the fact that it doesn't include Firewire support like the regular Audigy series of sound cards. Since the Extigy uses USB (meaning 12mb/s connections), the Firewire standard of 400mb/s is impossible.
If you can live with the fact that you won't be getting Firewire support, the Extigy is the sound card for you. While the Extigy costs roughly $100 Australian more than the standard Audigy DE, I think with the style and extra connectively features of the external version is worth the extra money out of your pocket you pay.
Creative have produced yet another stunning product in the Extigy, thumbs up to a great all-round solid product!
Amazing Sound Quality
