Auzen X-Fi HomeTheater HD PCI-E Sound Card Release Delayed Until January 2009

Auzentech, an exclusive Creative partner, informed recently that it has revised the release date for its Auzen X-Fi HomeTheater HD soundcard to the last week of January 2009. The Auzen X-Fi HomeTheater HD soundcard was originally scheduled for release sometime in September or October of 2008.
"I regret delaying the product release," said Stephane Bae, president of Auzentech, Inc. "The decision came suddenly due to strategic marketing changes by our partners. These partners have been instrumental in making the Auzen X-Fi HomeTheater HD an industry-supported audio solution. When it is released at the end of January, it will include the necessary software to access the advanced HD capabilities of the soundcard—and much of that software comes from our partners."
The Auzen X-Fi HomeTheater HD is a premium sound card, that will compete well with ASUSTeK's recently launched Xonar Essence STX. When released it will offer PCI-e x1 interface, Creative's 20K2 sound core, 64MB X-RAM, HDMI 1.3a output and some of the latest audio technologies in the market, such as Dolby Digital Live, DTS Connect, ASIO 2.0 and EAX 5.0. The card is also said to be able to output multichannel audio from Blu-ray discs with no downsampling, and play high bit-rate audio such as Dolby TrueHD, DTS-HD Master Audio bitstream without altering the original sound.

Ohhhhh. I have finally found my new sound card. The first Auzen card was somewhat tempting, as were the Titanium cards, but none of them had me hooked from the start. This one does. I can't wait.

I just had a Audigy/X-fi card die on me this weekend, working on a friends computer and the preamp chip let out the smoke. Damn strange, I still like my Turtle Beach cards since they do automatic pulldown.

Looks like an awesome sound card. If it is priced right, it would be my next one. No sound card is worth more than 130 bucks if you ask me.
