Has anyone heard anything on Creative's next sound card? I'm looking to create a gaming system to connect to my big screen. Creative confirmed that their current sound card won't do encoding out through an optical so that standard recievers/preamps can play back surround sound (for some sources it will but not all surround sound games). You could buy some speaker systems that were made for the creative output but I'd much rather play these back on my real home theatre system that has a much more impressive set of speakers, sub and amp. Creative has said that the encoding chips are cheap enough now to put on sound cards but they haven't given my any info about their next card. They didn't say if encoding would be on board or when the card is coming out. Has anyone heard anything on this? Would Tom know?
