(...) I believe he noted using and older Terrratec (from 2002). It may be the same DMX6Fire.
Rather not, because the USB model wasn't yet available back then. So it probably rather was the original ESS-based DMX, the Crystal-based Xfire or more likely (especially if your "from 2002" would refer to the product introduction rather than to when the guy bought/got it) the ICE/VIA-Envy24-based DMX 6fire 24/96 (with the drive-bay module) or the "light" variant thereof, the DMX 6fire LT.

Personally I remember the DMX 6fire 24/96 (and LT) as better sounding than whichever was Creative's current Audigy generation at that time - however, irrc, the 6fire 24/96 relied on purely analogue audio signal transmission between the card and the drive-bay module, while the Audigy would do it digitally, which made Creative's solution more insensitive to PC-internal EM radiation.
