ASUS Xonar HDAV 1.3 Slim Sound Card
I’m not sure why this card comes in PCI format instead of the now common PCI-Express. With the recent popularity in mATX and mini-ITX motherboards, the number of slots is slim and I must believe a lot of you have more PCI-Express slots than PCI. That being said, I love this product from an HTPC standpoint. It allows you to use half-height chassis to accomodate and *finally* bitstream audio. And yes, I’m still upset that it takes a $100+ sound card to bitstream.
