All I said is that it resamples, you can read into it what you wish. It does resample just like it's predecessors, just becasue it does it in a different way doesn't negate the fact it still does it. Never said the X-fi was bad just relaying info... The idea that resampling is necessary, needed and good?! -is a new piece of info for me...all the info I have read said it's a bad thing, people don't like it and it is totally unnecessary...good thing about a forum is you can think what you want.
