Nice review, looking foward to this card as i dont want to deal with creative drivers but im intersted on having still EAX support aswell as the package with the hp amp etc seems pretty impressive. Just wondering if this card has the crackling sound that X-FI cards have shown under Vista64? Actually, the Cretaive X-fi's have demonstrated crackling under many conditions. The Auzen cards are different, as the design is not the same at all. I know people who had crackling Creative X-fi's only to have the issues dissapear when snapping in a Auzen X-fi. There was no crackling or any other anamalies during any testing.
