Thanks for the feedback, much appreciated.
I managed to get the card working (with four channels). It turned out to be
I downloaded a set of generic drivers, kX drivers, and installed them. Then,
opening the settings, set the speaker configuration to 5.1 (it does not
allow 7.1 which the Audigy2 card should be capable of) with '5.1 Direct
Path' output. The important thing is these have ASIO copabilities.
dac~ 1 to dac~ 4 all then work indepently as desired.
These drivers can be freely downloaded from www.kxproject.com and worked
correctly with my Audigy2 ZS on WinXP.
