Or you can try the Turtle Beach Santa Cruz. I use one through a Pioneer VSX-D412K, 2 JBL N38II Floor Speakers, 2 JBL N26II Surround Speakers, a JBL S-CenterII center channel and a JBL PB12 12" powered sub-woofer.
It sounds pretty damn good to me. Better than any CREATIVE product I have used and better than the Hercules Muse 5.1 DVD.
i have a augidy 2 zs in my htpc (hooked up to an onkyo receiver), but thats really only because i play games on it. it sounds pretty good, but if i built my htpc purely for music, dvds, etc, i would have looked into other cards. if you want to go the audiophile route, you may want to check out this thread on avsforum for some ideas:
