Product Description

Designed by Auzentech's award-winning team of engineers, the new X-Fi Prelude sound card is another highly-anticipated Auzentech "World first" as the only sound card to be custom engineered to use Creative's X-Fi chipset by a third-party sound card vendor. This is the first time Creative has permitted a third-party sound card vendor to use the Creative X-FI chipset in its own sound card design. The X-Fi Prelude 7.1 sound card will fully support EAX 5.0 and have the same expandability as the X-Meridian 7.1 sound card. Additional features such as Dolby Digital Live, DTS Interactive, and DTS NeoPC will be available soon via driver updates1.

Take advantage of the latest EAX sound card technology from Creative Labs. Enjoy a 3D soundscape during game play. Bullets whiz past your head. Explosions shake the room. Take your games to the next level with EAX ADVANCED HD sound effects, available in Vista via OpenAL.

The advantages of Creatives X-Fi chipset include :-

  • The speed you need: Powerful audio processing engine boosts real game performance by more than 15% over ordinary motherboard audio.
  • Hear your enemies before they find you: Slip on your headphones or put your multi-channel speakers to work for you with positional audio that's so accurate you can locate enemies by sound.
  • Revitalize compressed audio: X-Fi Crystalliser technology restores the detail and vibrance to your compressed music and movies. In games, X-Fi Crystalliser makes gunshots sound crisp and sharp and explosions really boom for the most intense gaming experience yet. All the highs and lows are intelligently enhanced so you'll hear everything in crystal clarity.
  • Turn stereo music and movies into surround sound: X-Fi CMSS-3D technology expands your stereo MP3s and digital movies into surround sound over multichannel speakers, stereo speakers or even headphones. Voices are centred in front of you and ambient sounds are moved all around you.
  • Enjoy clearer voice chat: Talk it up and hear the difference X-Fi makes. Every voice comes through loud and clear.

IC Extractor Tool (Optional).

2 X-Fi Prelude comes standard with the National LM4562 Op Amp fitted. The LM4562 Op Amp is technically superior to the Burr Brown OPA2134PA Op Amp, however, the OPA2134PA produces warm Valve like sound, which some people prefer.
