I have a great Creative Cambridge Soundworks THX 5.1 surround speaker package and have a 5.1 surround card that I bought from Maplins and for DVD movies.
I'm now starting to buy some DVD-Audio discs and upgraded my Intervideo software to Intervideo 7 Platinum so I can play DVD-A discs. DVD-A will not play on ordinary DVD systems.
I have to say the sound is pretty good when listening to, for example, REM's "Automatic for the People".
However, I'm very tempted to buy Creative's Audigy Soundblaster Soundcard (£52 when bought on PC World's web site or £79 if bought in store). It has 24 bit encryption for DVD-A. But given that the sound I already get from my £30 soundcard seems OK, I wonder if I'd be wasting my money?
Anyone with any experience of the wonders of listening to DVD-Audio on their PC?
