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.
