How to configure Audigy 2 ZS in Vista for best music playback? -

Just following Robscix instruction, can anyone help on a quick guide to get the best audio playback in Vista? What should I enable or disable to get the best quality with music and general audio playback. In XP I used to get a very good audio quality, but now its a little distorted and with no bass... I have a set o Creative 2.1 speakers. I have the latest beta drivers installed.
Yeah, I installed the Creative Vista beta drivers dated from Jan 12th 2007. Also, I set the audio quality in the Vista Sound properties to DVD (16-bits and 48Khz). I tried 24-bits and 96Khz, but it started to produce pops all the time.
Just a question, can I enable CMSS? Or is this only for surround or 5.1 speake systems? How to adjust bass and treble?
little details like Bass and treble I am unsure of becasue I ahven't used Vista as of yet. Annother poster said enabling CMSS helped him with a BASS issue. I would just say look through ALL the audio settings to figure out where everything is that you may want to use. I am unsure of the driver structure with CL's Vista drives. I am unsure if you still have your EQ or not have you checked? I am gonna try my freinds Vista laptop later this week or next so I can assist some people in Vista. Although I am not moving to it fully until I get my new PC.

Well, I have an X-FI and 5.1 speaker system with SPDIF passthru or analogue depending on how a feel
But for you I would use Winamp, with the audioburst plugin, set it to upmix to 192khz and thats it really. Also you could mess with the mixer and set it to a curve with all high on the left and right ( not max ) and a dip in the middle.
If you have a sub, then use the THX console to set the crossover and boost the bass by 15 ( little tick box ).
