I'm on a bit of a Crystal drive right now, having bought an interesting Crystal-based card for a Windows 98 PC I recently built. This topic is a pretty hard one to Google, and Wikipedia doesn't seem to have a page regarding Crystal and their sound cards. Can anyone help me compile a list of cards that utilised Crystal/Cirrus Logic codecs?

Hehe.. I didn't even know they made them. But I remember our first family PC (an AST) had Cirrus in it.. but I think it was embedded.

Might try the way back machine, but I don't know of they will have anything that old, or have the drivers available for download.

Try posting the PCI string, or searching it.

I'm not looking for a particular card, I'm after a list of cards that used Crystal/Cirrus Logic codecs so I can search for them on ebay if they seem interesting. I like to collect vintage computer parts, see.

Thanks, but I'm not american and that doesn't give model names of the cards themselves, just the part number of the codec chips.
