I bought the Audigy 2 NX to hook into my laptop into my surround receiver. I'm especially pleased with the CMSS 3D surround "up-sample" feature. CMSS 3D beats SRS Circle Surround 2 upsampling (which only provides a mono signal to the surround speakers) easily, and is very competitive (although quite different!) with Dolby Pro Logic II upsampling.
However, I have several issues/problems.
1) The Audigy doesn't remember the mixer volume settings (eg Master and Wave) across a power up/down cycle of the Audigy hardware. I really hate having to go in and reset the volume every time I turn the system on.
2) I would like to apply CMSS 3D to my radio and other analog signals, but cannot because CMSS 3D does not get applied to "line in" signals, only to Wave signals.
3) There is no way to set the speaker distance to compensate for speakers that are at differing distances from the listening position. Competitor products like the M-Audio Sonica Theatre and stereo receivers have this capability.
4) There is no speaker size setting (eg small, medium, large) to ensure proper bass management. If the surround speakers are small, bass going to them should be routed to the front speakers or subwoofer (if present). Again, the M-Audio Sonica Theatre has this capability, as do stereo receivers.
5) It would be really useful to have VU meters for input and output (all channels) built into the driver. The M-Audio Sonica Theatre has very useful VU meters. Unfortunately the M-Audio also makes my system (XP) crash!
6) I find all the different "consoles" to be confusing and time-consuming to launch. They should combine the Surround Mixer, EAX, Graphic Equalizer, and Speaker consoles.

I work in the streaming media industry and have used many different types of sound cards...

The Audigy 2 does its job, but I think there are a few annoyances.

1. It is an external sound card with an USB interface, but it still needs a seperate power supply (although it needs just 5Volts)

2. Your computer has to be ON all the time even when you are just trying to route the audio from another external device like your VCR. This makes no sense to me given the fact that this sound card has its own dedicated power supply. So, even though it is an "external" card, it is still pretty much wedded to your computer. I could as well have used a cheaper internal card that does the same thing.

3. The Media control software crashes very easily. Especially when you try to launch the media control when your Audigy card has been powered off

4. When you use the "Mute" button on your remote, many times you find no way of Un-Muting - pressing the Mute on your remote does not have an effect and you have to walk over to your computer and manually un-mute it. This happens to me 9 out or 10 times.

5. There is huge difference in the volume levels of your audio output depending on whether you play audio using the Creative's media player Or some other player like the Windows media player. They have a "smart" volume control but enabling it made the audio sound kind of "choked up".

I would suggest that you buy this card if you plan on using it solely with your laptop. But if you are planning on using this as a control center for all your audio devices at home, then you may want to look some place else (unless you dont mind keeping a computer near your VCR/DVD Player etc and it stays on all the time)

I have bought this device a few days ago, because my computer's internal sound device keep fails. (I have Sony RS-630G desktop, and it has Soundmax sound device integrated in its motherboard. However, the device fails to play sounds after a while. Since it plays again once rebooted or drivers reinstalled, I guess it is the matter of device driver; but Sony hasn't upgrade the sound driver yet.) Anyway, it works great so far.

Comments:

1. The greatest advantage is that you don't have to open the computer. Simply plug the device into computer via USB cable, and install the drivers and software as needed. Since it's in very compact casing, it doesn't take up much spaces: slightly wider than the size of 2 cigarette boxes put toghther horizontally.

2. Remote control is nice when you want to switch volumes or mute it while you're not in front of computer.

3. Sound quality is satisfactory. However, for some reason I hear subtle noise in certain sound level. Probably it's because I am using standard 2 speakers which came with my computer. Acceptable.

4. It happens while I watch movie file with voice. If I skip the movie while voice was playing, there is a sharp noise(zip!) and a (very) slight delay until it plays voices or sounds of the point I skipped to. Also acceptable.

5. Some people down there complains about softwares. Since I haven't used bundled softwares except the operating driver yet, I can't really comment on that. (I don't think that I will somehow use bundled software.)

6. Instruction manual is acceptable, but not detailed enough. I would have been happy if the company put more detailed instructions rather than same way-too-brief instruction in other languages.
