    Re: vote for sound card

    Who is the best sound card maker? Any Audiophiles around here? I have a Soundblaster Audigy SE that i got for like $15 lol. I'm happy cause it destroys onboard audio. Though I was looking into a Asus Xonar.

    need a good card for games and music , for speakers I have a Klipsch 2.1 THX speakers so either card should power these nice speakers real nice
    I do cringe at creative , nice looking hardware but I still wonder about the drivers.
    Vote for the card you would get
    check the reviews at newegg, very good on the omega eclaro 7.1....i might even get one.

    Re: vote for sound card

    i might take a bite on the omega stricker 7.1 for $89....it would probably do me...that is the most popular omega card. though it does look like quality cost, and that is $150 plus for top end cards...you get what you pay for.

    i had been a turtle beach fan, but it looks like they are allmost out of the desktop sound card buisness....its a shame, but sound card business is a tough one.

    here is a german company that makes sound cards and sell internationally,..,...don,t know much about them

    Auzentech , I had one of the forte cards , basicly just a rebaged XFI with better components . Still used creatives drivers so that was a issue .
    Me I am done with anything even remotly related to creative .
    HT Omega is king of the Hill IMO

    Be advised that the Striker is 16 bit 48 KHz
    It is barely a step above onboard sound.
    You will not find that spec listed anywhere.
    I had one and sent it back and got a Claro.
