I don't know what you mean by success, but if that's just having it 
working, then yes I play music with visualizations and all :D
It doesn't crash or do anything wierd.  However, when displaying 
visualizations full screen, it won't display the track name when the 
song changes.  Other than that works great have no other gripes.  I 
wouldn't say I listen as many hours as watching TV, but almost as much.  
Sound is pretty good coming out of my onboard chip; could be better with 
a better card of course.
