So is the SB Live 24 bit, which is all the Xtreme Audio really is. Also why up until a little while ago the drivers for the Live 24 bit as well as the Audigy SE/DE/Value and the Xtreme Audio were a unified set, one driver package for all. All the Xtreme Audio is basically is a renamed SB Live 24 bit/Audigy SE/DE/Vlaue that gets to use some of the X-fi software (and doesn't even have game mode that the rest of the X-Fi's have).

As far as surround goes on that Audigy 2, it would probably work if you used these,

SB Audigy Series Support Pack 2.0 (04/17/2009) - Sound Blaster - Creative Labs

instead of the drivers from Creative. Also depends on what the source is, if it is a stereo source (pretty much any music), then the only way to get surround out of it is to enable CMSS3D, which the card supports.

Agree completely, I've been using these for Vista and Win7 so I would believe you would see the same results as I have (no issues)

One small problem kpo, he has the Xtreme Audio and if he wanted to use the daniekl_k drivers he would have to use this one,

Oh and mavadosh, the Titanium is a much better card than the Xtreme Audio.
