Auzentech Auzen X-Meridian 7.1
9 May 2007
Excerpt: Soundcards, like videocards, tend to have cookie-cutter designs; products that use the same chipsets look virtually the same. That wasn’t the approach Auzentech took when it put down the traces for its Auzen X-Meridian 7.1 card. Auzentech says it carefully crafted a custom PCB and added components to get the best possible audio from the card, which is based on C-Media’s top-shelf CMI8788 Oxygen HD “audio processor.” We believe it, too.
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.
