in newegg this is what i see:
CREATIVE LABS SOUND BLASTER AUDIGY WITH 1394 - OEM 24-bit,

Creative Labs Sound Blaster Live! Dolby Digital 5.1 - OEM
PCI 32-bit

how come the sb live is 32 bit and audigy is 24, or is pci 32 bit something different from the audigy one.. im confused here.. aint higher bitrate better? or is it not so for sound?

the 32 bit the 5.1 is refering to is the PCI interface not the playback capibiility which is what the Audigy is refering to.
