I have had my Auzentech Prelude for a couple of years now. For a while. they were no longer available. Now they are back and I wonder what,if any changes or uogrades have been made to them. If so, I will be getting a new one right now.
I'd say they realized that PCI-E sound cards aren't as popular as some would have thought.What's wrong with the one you have?
I wondered the same thing- they went on sale for very low prices when they seemed to be EOLing them, but now they're back...must have realized that they weren't directly competing with the forte somehow.
Mind, in some boards, that automatically downclocks the primary PCI-E slot to x8.I think that's because board builders keep putting the PCI-Ex1 slot right beside the PCI-Ex16 slots, and they get covered up by our dual-slot GPU's. Most people don't realize you can put the PCI-Ex1 cards in ANY PCI-E slot.
