NEW!! Sound Blaster Extigy to be released

With all the hype that surrounded the Game Theater XP, Herculesís external sound card. Creative decided to jump on the wagon with itís own product. The Sound Blaster Extigy, which Iím told will be in stores within the next week or two, is Creativeís attempt at the external sound card. With 24-bit multi-channel performance at 100dB SNR clarity and Dolby Digital 5.1 surround sound it should be great for you audio nuts. It has most all the features of the Sound Blaster Audigy with ports similar to the IR Live Drive. This USB remote controlled unit has optical in/out, line in, mic in, headphone, MIDI in/out, SPDF in, and digital out. The only down side in options seems to be the lack of SB1394 (FireWire). Estimated street price of $149.99US.

It wouldn't be possible to have a 1394 port when the device is USB itself. A firewire version would have been cool, but not many people have these yet. It's a sad thing, really. :)
