Legendary Audio. Updated!
The X-Meridian 7.1 2G is the second generation of the X-Meridian, the game changing high performance audio card which marked the dividing line between audio that sounds great and audio that sounds perfect. Auzentech took what many consider the greatest sound card of all time and updated it with the best of today's technology, making the X-Meridian 7.1 2G more than simply the must have PC audio solution for audiophiles. It's a feast for the ears!
Under the hood, the X-Meridian 7.1 2G has been upgraded with new Advanced Driver Software Architecture (ADSA) for the C-Media CMI8788 Oxygen HD PCI audio processor. Features include Dolby Digital Live Real Time Content Encoder, DTS CONNECT and Xear3D sound technology.
Complete Dolby Home Theatre Technologies: X-Meridian 7.1 2G includes the full set of Home Theatre Technologies to enhance your gaming and home entertainment experience. Dolby Digital Live, Dolby Pro Logic IIx, Dolby Headphone and Dolby Virtual Speaker.
Sound: With a digital to analogue converter of 120dB level, high end audio components and a design tuned for peak performance, the X-Meridian 7.1 2G is designed to provide the best audio possible for music, movies and games. Users can further tune the audio via the replaceable OPAMP for the all channels.
Proprietary Pointing Ground Technology: Inheriting from our past sound card, X-Meridian 7.1 2G uses the Auzentech proprietary pointing ground technology which shares one point for the DAC, OPAMP, power supply and output jack, stopping noise with much less distortion than most other brand sound cards and motherboard audio sources.
Performance: By using C-media CMI8788 PCI chipset, the Auzen X-Meridian 7.1 2G provides high performance audiophile quality sound to your AV equipment.

"If you need digital connectivity and multiple channel analog options or you are upgrading from onboard or an obsolete dedicated sound card, this card is for you. The X-Meridian's sound signature can be easily changed to suit your personal tastes, but movies, music, modern gaming and headphone listening were all outstanding with the card's stock settings and components. The feature we liked most was that this card requires very little volume in order to give a great and consistent sound... as the card stands "out of the box," we recommend it without any reservations."

"We had a few people stop into the audio lab during listening testing and each time we received comments on the cards sonic prowess. We noticed our visitors tapping their foot during their visit to our audio lab and that is what we are all after in an audio source." Review on Guru3D.
"There are plenty of expensive sound cards with excellent audio quality, but few have the flexibility of the X-Meridian 2G, with its individual DACs for every channel, SPDIF in and out, and upgradability through a daughterboard. Auzentech is holding its own against the latest premium audio hardware from Creative and Asus, and doing so in great style: the X-Meridian 2G is the best card we’ve heard for analogue audio for music and films."
