Do the OPAMPs sold by Auzentech really worth the premium?

    Most of Auzentech cards don't come with the allegedly better OPAMP Models so your left to either buy modified audio card from Auzentech at a ridiculously high price or buy them separate and have to (from the looks of it) solder it yourself.

    Correction:
    They are not soldered as first thought

    auzentech cards come with dip8 sockets for the opamps. don't spend the money on their website, you can get a damn nice opamp for around $5 plus shipping from newark or digikey.

    why not just mod the x-fi you already have?

    it is simple. if you can solder, it takes a half an hour at most.
