BIOSTAR Officially Launches Latest Intel Z77 Based Hi-Fi Motherboard

BIOSTAR, major manufacturer of motherboards, VGA cards, industrial computer systems and other peripherals, officially launches their latest edition to their high-end motherboard lineup, the Hi-Fi Z77X.

This newest ATX form factor motherboard supports all Socket 1155 CPUs and offers native support for SuperSpeed USB 3.0 and dual-channel memory up to DDR3-2600 in overclocking mode. But what sets the BIOSTAR Hi-Fi Z77X really apart from all the rest of the competition is exactly the integrated BIOSTAR Hi-Fi technology called "Puro Hi-Fi Technology", targeting audiophiles, HTPC enthusiasts and high-end gamers alike, Puro Hi-Fi sports an integrated independent audio power design with a built-in amplifier.


The Puro Hi-Fi technology utilizes audio components with an independent power design for a significant reduction in electronic noise and superb sound quality. The unique noise-blocking multi-layer PCB layout is ideal for exceptional clarity and high fidelity sound. With sampling rate of 192 kHz/24-bit which delivers a high quality audio through an analog connection to your home theater system, multi-channel speakers and high-end headphone. You can enjoy real Blu-ray grade high-definition sound that you've never experienced before in true 7.1-channel surround sounds.

High quality 'Non-Polarized Electrolysis Electric audio capacitors' for each individual audio channel circuit deliver low noise, low distortion, and wide bandwidth to achieve the highest sound resolution and sound expansion to ensure the most realistic sound effects. Furthermore, the Hi-Fi Resistors are made of metal-oxide film resistors with metal oxides such as tin oxide. The electric characteristics are greater stability and reliability than regular metal film resistors when operating in an extremely broad working temperature range. This special component is used in applications with high endurance audio demands.

With BIOSTAR's four unique technologies, Puro Hi-Fi, THX, Lucid MVP and SmartSpeedLAN, the brand new Hi-Fi series of motherboards increases sound, network and graphics performance dramatically. For a unique gaming masterpiece even with a limited budget, this new Hi-Fi series is surely the best choice and will become a favorite among gamers.

This may very well rival a highend sound card, and probably with better compatibility since it's most likely realtek based. Just wish it had swappable opamps.

I'm skeptic about this...
As am I. I'd much rather just output audio over HDMI to a receiver anyways and let the receiver handle everything. I mean, chances are, if you care that much about audio, you're gonna have one anyways. If you're a high-end headphone user, you probably already have a dedicated DAC and dedicated headphone amp anyways.

I think it's just a gimmick.

Perhaps... but it may be the deciding factor for someone who cares only a little about audio.

I'm loving the PCIe layout and the coloring is decent. So if I was looking to build an 1155 system this board would probably make my list of canidates. A small nicity like upgraded audio may give it an edge over the others.
