Santa Clara, CA: Auzentech, Inc. (www.auzentech.com) has released the highly-anticipated Auzen X-Fi HomeTheater HD, an HDMI 1.3a compliant audio card. The Auzen X-Fi HomeTheater HD has been designed around the latest Creative PCI Express X-Fi audio processor.
When paired with CyberLink PowerDVD® 9 Ultra software, the X-Fi HomeTheater HD sound card provides the highest quality lossless multi-channel audio experience for enjoying Blu-ray discs at home (24 bit, 192 kHz), taking full advantage of lossless digital audio formats such as Dolby® TrueHD and DTS-HD™ Master Audio.
The revolutionary X-Fi HomeTheater HD sound card provides full quality Blu-ray audio through eight 24-bit analog outputs, as well as providing the capability to "bitstream" the audio through your HDMI 1.3 connection.
