Auzentech makes me happy in the pants...

Yes, I'd like to thank you Auzentech for making such fine products. You have yet to let me down! This will make my 4th Auzentech purchase and still very content with you products.

I had almost forgotten how god awful onboard sound was... I didn't really think it was all that bad of quality besides the stuttering issue I was having. That was until I got back around to installing a true audiophile sound card, muahaha. I probably listened to music for 6 hours straight on my computer last night, just cranked to the max. :rocker: So crisp, so clean, so lush

For a $60 sound card, the X-Mystique just can't be beat. I don't notice a bit of sound quality difference between it and the X-Plosion I had last. Granted the extra digital output capabilities of the X-Plosion were nice, but I don't think they justified the cost increase. I was half-tempted to go all out and pick up the new X-Meridian but ultimately decided against it since I don't have a true set of speakers that would unleash the full wraith of a near $200 sound card.

Again, I highly recommend the Auzen cards to anyone looking for the absolute best music/movie sound possible. No one makes a better card.

How do they rate against the X-FI in support in games? Do they have EAX5 capabilities?

When i was in the market for a soundcard i had a good look for some AT cards in the UK. Could only find one and that cost £100 at the time

This is where they fall down a bit, they aren't as good as the X-Fi's in games

Having said that the drivers actually work in Vista so....

Oh and btw Frag, I'm using onboard audio atm and it's got a lot better since the bad old days

It's definitely not that bad if you get a board that has an audio riser, or one of the new boards with onboard X-Fi. Nothing beats the sound of a good old fashioned sound card though

My Sound Blaster Live! 5.1 PE < Karajen Audio module on my DFI. Not only does my onboard support EAX2 but it also sounds alot better without the glitchies from stupid Creative drivers.

Ive read a lot about the X-Fis taking so much load off the cpu that they get a small FPS boost. Is it the same with these cards?
