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.

In your case you are getting pseudo surround. Using DDL would get you true surround from games and some video files with surround sound not encoded in DD or DTS.
If you don't play many games and just watch movies this card won't be worth the cash.
Seeing as you are interested in EAX however, it seems you do play games...in which case I would look into this solution so you at least get surround sound.
