ASUS nails TrueHD and DTS-HD MA bitstream on the PC

Posted on Sunday, December 14 2008 @ 00:30:38 CET by

Earlier this week, we met up with the AV team from the ASUS headquarters in Taiwan and they showed us what their continually evolving Xonar HDAV1.3 Deluxe audio card is capable of doing on the HD movie audio front.

Forum users over at the AV Science forum (this thread) were initially very excited to hear about a proper HDMI 1.3 audio card finally hitting the market – the HomeTheater HD from Auzentech is also on the way, but seems to be getting constantly delayed.

They got to work and continually developed the product with a series of driver updates, which eventually led to the Xonar HDAV1.3 Deluxe audio card being able to bitstream TrueHD and DTS-HD / DTS-HD MA on the PC. ASUS credits the close relationship with ArcSoft and CMedia for making it all possible."
