Can anyone else verify? Not that I don't trust, just that I want to get the X-Fi to mod it but I am torn... the HT seems not to support all the gaming audio so the X-Fi modded would be the way to go if you got it right down to the spelling on what I quoted, so I am now only afraid that the new X-Fi won't be right for modding... has anyone heard about it taking this mod?http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16829102005
VERY IMPORTANT... is the SNR from Creative accurate?
