Probably that’s part of the reason late last year Creative announced an update to its Audigy series, the new 5.1 Audigy LS that would finally replace the long-lived Live! while the Audigy and Audigy2 would also get a replacement in the form of the Audigy 2 ZS.

Among the new features offered in the ZS we have true support for 7.1-channels, THX certification, DTS ES support, ASIO2 support and updated EAX 4.0 extensions.
