Unforetunately, Auzentech has not been able to deliver a stable driver. Many of the SQ and compatibility issues associated with the early stages of Vista were fixed in the November 7, 2007 Creative X-Fi driver.

I know the Auzen has better components but the driver is the most important factor associated with any PC component plugged into a PCI slot. The best option for a reliable dedicated sound card is a Creative X-Fi...pick the version with the features that fits you best.
kinda came out of left field.... but Auzen fixed their drivers too. Been running fine for a few months now...

I have heard numerous complaints about the digital out functionality. I believe you are running via 3.5mm > RCA IC also correct?

I've been having ASIO problems over my digital connection and I got this reply from Auzentech support:

Thank you for contacting Auzentech.

"We are aware of the ASIO issue. When we select the 'Auzentech ASIO' in output setting in Foobar2000, there is no sound.
When we use the ASIO4all, sound comes out properly.

The next driver(RC5-1) will be available next week, but the ASIO issue will not be fixed with it.
We are working on the driver continuously and trying to improve all issue as soon as possible."

Although ASIO4ALL won't even work for me.... over the digital out anyway, analogue works perfectly with ASIO.

Yes, I'm using the analog out, as are most Auzen users.

Worthwhile purchase:

...

Beethoven / Kempf Trio
Op. 97 'Archduke' & Op. 1 No. 3 in C minor




...

I rocked out all last night and just kicking it with some Beethoven at the moment.

This is that SACD release I was questioning earlier.

It's hybrid so plays fine on my Sony deck.

The recording/mastering is immaculate.

Just an FYI.

s1rrah, you should check out some K2 HD CD's, I bought a couple and they sound amazing. Here is a one minute clip from Emerson, Lake & Palmer's self titled album from the song Lucky Man. The opening guitar line is so realistic it was crazy . Lucky Man Sample. It sounds great with my new setup, I'll post listening impressions a little later tonight, I've been waiting to gather my thoughts and get to know the sound a little better if that makes any sense.
