Hi, i need a soundcard, my audigy is making strange clicks, tested in both pcis (my motherboard have only two and they are near the corsair power supply ) and tested lots of drivers. My first option was a xonar d2x pci-e, but i read about that new x-meridian and im a bit confused right now. I like that the xonar have a emi shield, and pci-e conection but i dont know if both things really mather on sound quality. Thanks, sorry for my english and happy new year!!!
