Lee, what's your opinion of the CREATIVE AUDIGY 2 ZS PLATINUM?  A buddy 
and I have been (very slowly) building a replacement for my current 
SBlive PlanetCCRMA/RH9 machine.  We've got all the hardware done now 
and are getting ready to install PlanetCCRMA/FC5 "soon as we can find 
the time"...  Is this a "good move" audio quality/function wise?  TIA 
for your thoughts.
