Auzentech Prelude 7.1 (Source: Hardware Canucks)
EAX 5.0 and Dolby Digital Live on a single PCI sound card
Auzentech is set to release the first third-party Creative Labs X-Fi based sound card – the Prelude 7.1. The Prelude 7.1,
announced last month
, allows users to enjoy multi-channel EAX 5.0 positional audio without connecting four sets of audio cables. Auzentech licenses Dolby Digital Live multi-channel audio encoding technology to provide users single-cable convenience over S/PDIF.
mates features previously found on the Auzentech X-Meridian with the Creative Labs X-Fi sound processor. Auzentech equips the Prelude 7.1 with a removable OPAmp on the front channels output of the sound card, unlike the X-Meridian’s four removable OPAmps. A LM4562NA is the default installed OPAmp on the Prelude 7.1.
Auzentech pairs the Creative Labs X-Fi sound processor with two memory chips for 64MB of memory. AKM digital-to-analog convertors are installed on all eight audio channels, a step up from the Cirrus Logic DACs employed by Creative Labs. Other notable features of the Prelude 7.1 include audio headers, although it is unknown if they meet Creative Labs’ specifications.
Expect the Auzentech Prelude 7.1 to trickle into retail channels in the coming weeks.

Got a Fatality but will buy an Auzentech anyways

I have a Fatality Gamer with the 64mb X-ram and it works amazingly well in games like Battlefield 2142 where I cannot begin to describe the awesome sound quality with either speakers or headphones. The problem is mine seems to OVERHEAT and it will lock my entire system. I think its due to low quality capacitors and/or crappy X-ram. When I use it with the ram disabled it works fine.
I hope Auzentech adds a heatsink + fan combo to cool that hot ass chip. Also I hope the X-ram is made by a better manufactuer. Either way I'll still get one because from the looks of it you cant beat the build quality on a board like that. This is a really great company and I'm glad Creative finally woke up and allow other board manufacturers to use their good gaming chipsets.
