umm what exactly is it. sounds like a sound card however not familiar with the brand name or whatever. shed some light?
Auzentech is a sound-card manufacturer. See www.auzentech.com for details.
They make fairly high-end devices, and they're quite keen on (among other things) real-time Dolby Digital and DTS encoding.
Supposedly they are going to be launching a card that has a Creative X-Fi chip on it, but which uses higher-quality components on the circuit-board than Creative's own X-Fi cards do - better quality DACs, better capacitors, that sort of thing - so it should have similar performance to a conventional X-Fi card in terms of API-compatibility and processing power, but better sound quality (e.g. higher signal-to-noise ratio).
I just wondered if anyone knew when it was supposed to ship.
