HTPC Sound Card
Q: What is the best HTPC sound card?
A: Auzentech offers "World First" HTPC sound cards that have received numerous awards by HTPC enthusiasts.
If you're looking to assemble a Home Theater PC, Auzentech offers some of the best HTPC sound cards available. Auzentech HTPC sound cards have become favorites of HTPC enthusiasts and PC audiophiles who previously had few options for lossless audio playback and surround sound. Continue reading for a brief introduction to learn why Auzentech cards are the best way to handle a variety of audio inputs and outputs, both digital and analog.
Auzentech HTPC sound cards handle any audio source. If the audio already includes surround sound, it will be replayed faithfully. It will not be down-sampled into stereo, as would a basic soundcard. And when you play ordinary stereo from video game, MPEG, MP3 file, or audio CD, Auzentech HTPC sound cards can up-sample the audio into surround sound.
Connect to Home Theater Receivers
You can connect Auzentech HTPC sound cards to your home theater Audio Visual receiver for pristine audio. The Auzentech X-Plosion sound card, for example, will supply up to 7.1 channels of pure digital audio using DTS® technology, or 5.1 channels using Dolby® Digital Live® technology. Simply choose the option that matches your AV receiver. A pure digital bitstream is sent to your receiver using optical Toslink connectors.
Connect to Multichannel Speakers
If you do not have a home theater system, you can also connect Auzentech HTPC sound cards directly to a powered multichannel speaker system that uses analog input. And for the best possible sound, you have the option of upgrading the operational amplifiers in the cards (see the Auzentech Sound Card FAQ page).
Want to take the first step toward transforming an ordinary PC into a Home Theater PC? With an Auzentech HTPC sound card, your audio becomes exceptional. Surround sound immerses you in movie scenes and gives you audio clues in games. Two-channel stereo music sounds fuller, richer, and clearer than ever. An Auzentech HTPC sound card is a solid step toward the best-sounding audio you've ever heard.
