Creative Labs Owes You
According to this article on The Inquirer, Creative agreed to settle a lawsuit last year about misleading information on its Audigy and Extigy sound cards.
Creative claimed that the products in question could handle 24-bit audio at 96Khz ? indeed this was stated on the product boxes in bold letters, and in all advertising. But complaints filed in 2003 pointed out that this was only true in a very limited set of circumstances, and pretty much all of the audio passing through the cards would actually be processed at lower quality.
