Performance

the sound quality improvement between this and the extigy is very noticeable (audigy 2 nx being better). but the major difference between the two is the greatly improved ease of use of the audigy 2 nx. this includes much better software (user friendly, easily accessible, lets you control everything, and MOST IMPORTANTLY a vastly improved surround sound cmss), hardware (much smaller, even the power supply was reduced in size and weight), and design. i highly recommend this over the extigy or in fact ANY sound card. great price, even better quality. ps the dvdaudio option is crazy. the dvd audio is wayyy better than regular audio.

-jeffrey-tan@comcast.net quote

I record live performances on Minidisk of my group which sings Renaissance music, and had poor luck with the standard sound card which came standard on my new, (cheap) Dell desktop. So I bought this Audigy external unit in hopes the sound would be better, and as it is USB installed, did not require cracking the Dell's case, and any potential hardware installation issues. On both accounts it worked great!! Only downside is that it runs quite hot, you might want to put it on a switched socket so it does not run even when your PC is off.
