Digital audio sounds best on Sound Blaster with 24-bit ADVANCED HD quality and 113dbSNR from 24-bit/192kHz DACs and studio-quality EAX ADVANCED HD music settings. For pristine audio clarity and depth, the Sound Blaster Audigy 4 Pro also supports Advanced Resolution DVD-Audio playback in 24-bit/192kHZ stereo and 24-bit/96kHz in 5.1 surround sound.
