Yeah, I had thought about that before, but....

Support for the extigy device is so minimal in linux right now, that I'd
get no better sound from it than I would from the integrated audio
chipset really.  Creative isn't supporting it with linux at all right
now. There is an unsupported driver providing very limited support for
it, and that's it.  You can't even play 44.1Khz audio files to it.
