Hello

I know that Creative is the best Brand for a sound cards since the old times of dos and untill the moment!

thinking of proffesional sound card...
Creative has a proffesional sound card which has really really insane high quality everything!
They actually USED 24K GOLD!

only one thing i didnt like!
It was a PCI 2.0 card not PCI express

Is there any professional PCI express sound cards available?!

I have another question that is quite off topic

I have seen something similar to JBOD and external SAS but it was with PCI and Pci express
It was a case having some sort of a board containg only PCI and some chips ,The case have a power supply
that case is connected to the computer via a cable just like connecting a JBOD !

Can someone give me more detailes about this thing?!

Waiting for answers

Thanks

Can you provide a link to this card? As the specs for the card don't sound quite right.

Creative hasn't been a good brand for a LONG time now; they've been passed by HT Omega, Auzentech, and ASUS.

For the most part, HT Omega uses the same chipset (CMI-8788) ASUS uses. Auzentech used the CMI-8788 for a few of its older cards and the Meridian, but otherwise used Creatives own X-fi chipset with significantly upgraded components. Both are a bit overdue for a product refresh though...
