PCI Sound card with Analog 7.1?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Looking for advice on a decent sound card that has very specific characteristics to be used with a Razer Tiamat 7.1.

Has to have the 4 surround analog inputs, needs to be PCI, as all my PCI-E slots are either used or being covered by dual video cards.

Budget around 100$ if possible.

I was going to hit up a cheap Xonar DG however it does not have the full analog surround, unless I'm mistaken?


Thank you.

What motherboard to you have? I'm using the Tiamat 7.1 in analogue on a Maximus VII Hero.
Some Asus Mobos can add an Asus specific card. I got one for my wife's PC.

Technically it's not possible to get true 7.1 through headphones. Analogue on the board plus using the Razer Synapse software is pretty much best you can do and honestly it's pretty good.

Asus Phoebus (which I'm using now)
I tried Tiamat 7.1 for a week with it.
Don't put any EQ, effects or Dolby, position sound cue is better than my PC360.
