Dear all, Creative have discontinued the Sound Blaster X-Fi Titanium HD sound card, which I understand is widely used for studies requiring sound delivery with high temporal precision. Creative say that there is no natural successor to this sound card, but have pointed me to the Sound Blaster Z series (; has anybody used this sound card and could perhaps provide some advice on its temporal characteristics and fidelity (regardless of all the signal processing software that it comes with and which is not really wanted for delivering experimental stimuli)? If the Sound Blaster Z series is not the way to go, what would people recommend to use instead? Thanks, Tobias
