[pulseaudio-discuss] Soundcard with hardware mixer

I run pulseaudio 0.9.14 with KDE 4.3 RC2. So far it runs fine. I just wonder, 
would I benefit from a soundcard with hardware mixer? I could get a cheap 
Audigy 2 ZS.

When I run Skype and listen to MP3 radio stream, the MP3 stream is fine, but 
Skype often is a bit stumbling. 

Currently I use a Audigy LS which has no hardware mixer. Does hwmix improve 
latencies very much?
