Auzentech Auzen X-Meridian 7.1
9 May 2007
Summary: Using the latest drivers from Auzentech, the card consistently performed more slowly than the other two cards we reviewed. While the frame-rate hit isn’t fatal, we would look to the other products for gaming needs. The X-Meridian 7.1 is probably best left to home media center work. With its real-time Dolby Digital encoding capability, dual optical ports, and upgradeable op-amps, the card’s real forte is home theater.
Pros: Replaceable op-amps, FP Audio headers.
Cons: Oddly slower than the Barracuda AC-1, which uses the same chip and drivers. Works only with five-volt PCI.
