SoundBlaster Audigy Question

I have an onboard soundcard for my FreeBSD box and I was thinking of 
getting the new Audigy card.  Does the FreeBSD drivers for the Audigy 
take advantage of surround sound, EAX, digital connections, or number of 
channels? Or does the soundcard operate at a more basic level ie. stereo 
sound no hardware acceleration etc.

Is there any reason to have such a high end soundcard in a FreeBSD system?
