The command 'apropos Audigy' gives: snd_emu10k1(4)

I quote:

      The snd_emu10k1 driver supports the following sound cards:

     o   Creative SoundBlaster Live! (EMU10K1 Chipset)
     o   Creative SoundBlaster Audigy (EMU10K2 Chipset)
     o   Creative SoundBlaster Audigy 2 (EMU10K2 Chipset)
     o   Creative SoundBlaster Audigy 2 (EMU10K3 Chipset)

I'm not sure if this is the right one, because I can't find the type of
chip used in the SE on the Creative site.
