Actually, if you still want it, then you can get it from Provantage for $141.27 before shipping.

Provantage is just as reputable and trustworthy as Newegg.

A lot of the Auzentech cards are currently unavailable. Raw materials shortage maybe?

Ever considered ASUS sound-cards? A different alternative to the Creative experience; a lot of people have actually preferred ASUS over the other brands.

Cheapest price I can find on the internet:

Works wonders above on-board sound, although I wouldn't call it super amazing.
