I have been waiting for someone to start a thread on this card and I'm glad you did that. I'm also looking forward to buy a good sound card for my HTPC which can send loseless audio bitstreaming to my AVR. Thing is I'm struck btwn Azuntech HTHD and ASUS Xonar HDAV1.3. My question is which one s better? Asus released their card like a while ago but I dunno why people waited so long and desperately for this Azun card, whats so special abt this card anyways ? I agree that in gaming, azun has an upperhand over asus due to its EAX 5.0 support but if yu aint much of a gamer, is this card worth the extra bucks ??
Should be available at 8K or less. Check with dealers.
I have seen the pricing range around 7.5 - 8.5 K. 10K is too high for retail pricing.
