Auzentech X-Fi Forte 7.1 PCI Express sound card review

Elite Bastards
25 March 2012
  • Conclusion: When we reviewed the Auzentech X-Fi Prelude back in September 2007, we could barely hide our disappointment that such a potentially good piece of hardware was left crippled by drivers that were missing core pieces of functionality, a state of affairs which continued with that card for far longer than we would have liked.

Auzentech X-Fi Prelude 7.1

Club Overclocker
17 May 2009
  • Conclusion: The Auzen X-Fi Prelude isn't just good, its scary good.  The testing shows just how much better Auzen can make their card over the same chipset from Creative.  And we haven't really touched on the advantages Auzen brings to the table with Dolby Digital and DTS modes coming soon.  Heck they even have a functioning Vista driver. Ultimately it all comes down to how it sounds.  Back to back tests with games and music just sounded better on the Prelude.

Auzentech X-Fi Forte Review

FiringSquad
23 March 2009
  • Conclusion: The Auzentech X-Fi Forte has a lot of really great features that any HTPC owner should take notice of. Its low profile makes it perfect for small form factor gaming rigs, such as LAN boxes and its EAX 5.0 support is great for users still running Windows XP. The native support of DDL and DTS make it a good choice for those people who want audio quality that is better than on-board for their home theatre’s.

Auzentech X-Fi Prelude sound card review

Elite Bastards
17 July 2008
  • Conclusion: We've been excitedly waiting for the Auzentech X-Fi Prelude to hit retail for a few months now and finally, here it is.  However, I'm going to have to start our summing up with a simple fact - This board won't be gaining any awards from Elite Bastards just yet. The reasoning behind that should really be pretty obvious - Until we get hold of drivers with support for at least Dolby Digital Live support (and preferably DTS Interactive too), we simply can't call the Prelude...

Auzentech X-Fi Prelude 7.1

4 March 2008
  • Summary: In a listening test using 24-bit/96kHz audio samples, two editors compared the Prelude to Asus’s Xonar D2 and both preferred Auzentech’s card. In gaming, the X-Fi Prelude represented well. Its scores were in line with a Creative X-Fi’s, albeit slightly slower. What’s really important, though, is the Prelude’s full support for all of Creative’s proprietary EAX technologies.
  • Pros: X-Fi and HD Audio headers on the card.
  • Cons: Must use Auzentech-provided X-Fi drivers.

Auzentech X-Fi Prelude 7.1

  • Summary: Today we are taking a look at the X-Fi Prelude 7.1 from Auzentech. It is a soundcard based on, as the name tells, X-Fi that comes from Creative. This is the first time that a third-party company is allowed to use Creative’s X-Fi components on their own soundcard. So, while Creative is the manufacturer of the X-Fi, Auzentech is the manufacturer of this card.

Auzentech X-Fi Prelude 7.1 Sound Card Review

nvnews.net
24 September 2007
  • Summary: In my Auzentech X-Meridian review, I complained that the only features missing were the EAX 3-5 and OpenAL. Well, they removed a couple of features that I loved (Dolby Headphone stands out and is missed the most by me), but they added the missing features, causing the X-Fi Prelude to be completely worth your while. Auzentech pulled it off. They stuck to their roots, making quality sound cards, while integrating the X-Fi chipset from Creative.

Auzentech X-FI Prelude 7.1 Review

Hardware Canucks
2 August 2013
  • Conclusion: Auzentech definitely listened to their customer base when they headed to the drawing board for the Prelude 7.1. It has a bundle of wanted features that were almost impossible to get on one sound card up until now. I am very impressed with this card from start to finish. The sound quality coupled with gaming features and new high resolution digital output specifications (which will be added) make this one solid offering from the Auzen audio group.
