I was reading that website and saw that they reccomend Winamp 2.7+ or mpg123 as the mp3 decoder. However i believe it was from here or the other board that MAD was a better decoder? What's the deal actually?

the test does use older version of MAD 12.2 instead of 14.2 ....

Just want opinions I guess ... I mean i dont have the hardware to really tell the difference, just a TBSC connected to a z560 set. With Sony MDR-V6 for heaphone use, not really high end stuff, but i am just curious

What decoding engine do you guys recommend for people who have a Soundblaster Audigy??

The Audigy 1 isn't true 24-bit, and will downsample MAD's output to 16-bit anyway. So stick with the default Winamp decoder.
