The Auzen X-Fi HomeTheater HD outputs a bitstream of high-definition, multichannel audio from Blu-ray Discs with no downsampling, to take full advantage of lossless digital audio formats such as Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio when combined with Cyberlink PowerDVD (available separately). Developed in partnership with Creative, Cyberlink and Silicon Image, the X-Fi HomeTheater HD has broad support for the latest audio technologies in the marketplace.
The Auzen X-Fi HomeTheater HD accepts video from an external connection, mixes it with digital audio, and outputs the combined video and lossless multichannel audio via a single HDMI™ 1.3 port. The Auzen X-Fi HomeTheater HD has been designed around the latest Creative PCI Express X-Fi audio processor. For home theater enthusiasts, the processor includes HDMI 1.3 support and features Dolby Digital and DTS encoding for a single-cable connection to home theater systems. For gamers, the card leverages the power of the PCI Express-optimized X-Fi processor to deliver accelerated audio for improved game performance, with ultra-realistic EAX 5.0 effects and 3D positional audio.
PCI Express™ (PCIe) is a serial bus standard that provides a higher throughput than the older, parallel PCI bus standard. Unlike PCI Express™ sound cards built with PCI processors adapted for the PCIe slot, the X-Fi™ HomeTheater HD is built around Creative Labs' PCI Express™ processor. As a native-PCI Express™ sound card, the X-Fi™ HomeTheater HD can take full advantage of the higher-throughput of the PCIe bus
HDMI v1.3a: Enjoy Blu-ray in its full glory! The Auzen X-Fi™ HomeTheater HD is the first and only industry-supported native-PCI Express soundcard offering uncompressed audio supporting 24p True Cinema output. By delivering crystal-clear all-digital audio and video via a single HDMI connection, the Auzen X-Fi™ HomeTheater HD dramatically simplifies cabling and provides the highest-quality home theater experience. In compliance with HDCP and AACS, the Auzen X-Fi™ HomeTheater HD can play Blu-ray Audio with no downsampling, and play High bit-rate Audio such as Dolby® TrueHD, DTS-HD Master Audio bitstream without altering the original sound when combined with Cyberlink PowerDVD (available separately).
Security: The PCI-Express independent data transfer structure provides secure performance, important because Audio requires continuous data processing that is both secure and continuous.
By using the latest Creative native PCI Express chipset, the Auzen X-Fi™ HomeTheater HD card provides the highest performance audio available for consumer home theater applications. With 64MB X-Ram, it will also process complicated 3D sound effects with the greatest of ease.
The Auzen X-Fi™ HomeTheater HD soundcard is designed to provide the best audio possible for Music, Gaming and Movies. Auzentech selected high end audio components, a 115dB D/A converter, and tuned the analog circuit for peak performance. In addition, discerning of audiophiles can tune the sound via replaceable front (L/R) Operational Amplifier (OPAMP).
The Auzen X-Fi HomeTheater HD outputs a bitstream of high-definition, multichannel audio from Blu-ray Discs with no downsampling, to take full advantage of lossless digital audio formats such as Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio when combined with Cyberlink PowerDVD (available separately).
