Auzentech X-Meridian 7.1 Sound Card
I haven't had a chance to investigate Auzentech's X-Meridian suitability for HTPC life quite yet. For example, I am not sure if it will pass through sound unmangled or not. If you guys have, drop a line in the comments box and let us know what you think about it. While we wait for people's responses, head on over to ThinkComputers and see what they think.
From the article:
If you are an audiophile yourself or you are looking for that perfect gift for an audiophile then look no further. The Auzentech X-Meridian 7.1 has all of the features you could ever want in a 7.1 card and with a MSRP of $199.99 it won't break the bank either. When paired up with a nice 5.1 or 7.1 surround sound audio system this sound card will definitely deliver. The Auzentech X-Meridian is the prefect companion for any mid range or high end PC that needs their audio to really shine to make it the perfect PC. Because of the X-Meridian's nearly flawless performance ThinkComputers gives it a score of 9 out of 10.
