You can't keep a XFi down

Even with the controversy surrounding Creative, their products are still popular. The Auzentech X-Fi Prelude 7.1
is one such product, and it is up for review on TweakTown. Auzentech has licensed the technology from Creative, so this card is not going to cause the uproar that the ASUS card recently has. Read on to see how well the XFi has been implemented on this card.
""From a technical point of view we understand that Auzentech has fully licensed Creative Labs’ X-Fi chip onto their
own proprietary circuit board design. So what does that mean? Well it means arguably the world’s fastest and most
advanced audio processing at the average consumers reach right now, with upcoming driver support for Dolby Live, DTS
interactive and since we have a Creative chip, the very latest in EAX surround technology.
My first impressions were good with a very noticeable notch up from the low-end after swapping from the Xonar. Not only
did the low-end sound a lot beefier, it had a lot more character to it; more warmth and depth.""
