    Hi,

    I currently have a Audigy 2 ZS for music, how much would I benefit from upgrading this and to what?

    Cheers

    Unless you are willing to pay huge amounts of money on good quality speakers I don't think you'll notice lots of difference... Unless you are an audiophile.

    Do you mean listening to music, or creating?

    If it's for listening, then stick with what you got and invest in good speakers, for creating music don't go with any audigy products, M-audio make very good entry level cards.

    actually, one of the best cheap-ish cards for music is a creative, kind of: E-Mu 0404

    The EMU 1212 delivers everything you need to produce audio on a PC with professional results - 24-bit/192kHz converters (the same A/D converters used in Digidesign's flagship Pro Tools HD 192 I/O interface).
    E-MU's 1212 feature the powerful E-DSP chipset, which features a hardware-accelerated effects processor with over 20 effects plug-ins (over 500 presets). This effects architecture is fully expandable, allowing you to add more effect plug-ins to your system as needed. :naughty:

    ...but if you have the chance to spend a "little" more, try the best imho :

    - RME - Fireface 800. :thumb:

    If want something just to listen try upgrade your speakers.

    PS - I still love my Audigy. :hip:
