Hi all,

How does the audio-quality of a "Creative Labs" Audigy/Extigy/Live audio-card compare with a common Sony DVD/CD-player ? Let's say the bitrate of the MP3's is 320kb/s or higher...

Is there even talk of comparison, or am I completely wrong ?

no comparison. a cd/dvd player of a computer is at at LEAST 700kbps JUST for audio, an mp3 is only at 320 max. DTS can get to 1400kbps.

Creative labs stinks anyway for high quality sound.

a home dvd player outputs exactly waht it gets, unless it has a digital onboard decoder, to your receiver to decode. a receiver can get up to a 192bit/48Hz decode, your computer, yours especially, can only do up to like 32bit/44Hz I think.
