Sound Card Recommendation for Debian 5.x.x and Later
What is the best sound card to purchase for a Debian Box that I intend to run 7.1 surround sound with for both movies, as well other multimedia? I may do games on this machine, but that will not be the box's primary purpose. What are the special hardware requirements (if any) that I should be aware of before I make a purchase?
What about creative labs' "Sound Blaster Audigy" series? Does anyone know of any problems with those cards or their drivers in Linux (Debian specifically)?
Thank you for your time and consideration.
