X-bit Labs has taken a closer look at the Auzentech X-Fi Prelude 7.1 audio card:
Auzentech’s first three products were based on C-Media’s controllers, and the company claims to be the world’s first maker of audio cards with support of Dolby Digital Live and DTS Connect. Perhaps it is so, but this support is implemented by C-Media’s engineers and programmers and available on all cards with the appropriate chip. In April this year there was another piece of hot news: Auzen is preparing a new product based on the Creative X-Fi audio-processor! Until that, Creative Labs had never supplied its technologies to third-party developers, so that was a kind of revolution by itself. Besides, the engineers were set the task of creating a hi-fi product that would combine the newest gaming technologies from Creative with high-quality music playback and advanced audio-editing capabilities.
