- Playback at 24-bit/96KHz?
As mentioned earlier, the Audigy 2 supports audio playback at 24-bit encoding with a sampling rate of 96kHz. When the original Audigy was released, Creative copped quite a bit of flack due to the fact that they claimed true 24-bit audio support when the Audigy could only internally process at 24-bit and output at 16-bit. However, this is not the case with the Audigy 2. The Audigy 2 can internally process at 24-bit, as well as output sound at this rate using its 24-bit DACs (Digital-to-Analog) converters.
The extent to which you will benefit from 24-bit/96kHz audio playback highly depends on what you use your PC for. You will not notice much difference when playing an MP3, however, you are sure to notice a significant improvement when playing high quality audio such as the above mentioned DVD audio.
As well as this, the Audigy 2 is the first consumer level sound card to receive the THX certification from Lucas Arts. Although not much is known regarding the requirements to obtain this certification, you can rest assured that you are purchasing a high quality product if you see the THX logo plastered across the box.
