If you own a Audigy ES, Audigy Platinum, Audigy Platinum eX, Audigy Gamer, Audigy MP3+ and also the original Extigy external USB sound module you are eligible for this settlement. The offer ends September 2005.
So we go out and buy another Creative product? Ah, marketing at its best.
M-audio, here I come......
How do you redeem this?
RIP Dad. I will miss you always.

I say it's worth I try, there's too much legal to tell but you can always submit your card's serial number and see if they deny the claim.
For those who were not around during this controversy, here's a decent summation courtesy of THG archives:
The Audigy Platinum not only has 32-bit processing but also includes an IEEE-1394 port and a new version of the EAX - the EAX Advanced HD. But be warned, the Audigy's ability to support 24-bit/ 96-kHz sound is very relative. Unlike the DMX 6Fire 24/96, the Audigy Platinum is not a "true" 24/96 and cannot play or record a file of this quality, nor even work on it. Actually, the only task it does in 96 kHz is a linkup with another device via the S/PDIF input. The card and rack components are all supposed to be 24-bit/ 96-kHz-compatible, but, in practice, the card is limited to 16 bits/ 48 kHz. Analog recording and restitution is possible in 24 bits/ 48 kHz, but, in fact, the processor downsamples in 16 bits and then upsamples. The card also has to be used with the sample rate conversion (SRC) software provided in order to work in 44.1 kHz. It's just a pity that Creative has not given this product an automatic SRC hardware option by using, say, a Cirrus Logic CS8420 chip. And it's really a pity that the card is not completely 24-bit/ 96-kHz-compatible. But the Audigy can model, process and position several sound sources separately and in real time.
