  • Enjoy PC audio with the quality of a home audio system

  • Over 75 years of audio experience

  • 32-bit floating point DSP engine

    A software engine that can losslessly process 24 bit sound to add DSP effects without reverting back to 16 bit resolution

  • Digital sound delivers a clean signal for perfect quality

    Audio is transferred as a digital signal and only at the last minute is it converted to an analog signal. This reduces the amount of interference on the signal and results in playback that is true to the original recording.

  • Compatible with music, games, film and Internet audio sources

    All types of music, games, films and Internet audio sources can be played, so no matter what you want to hear, we make your multimedia experiences sound more involving than ever.

  • EAX2.0 and A3D 1.0 support

    PC games often contain 3D sound that is positioned in space using various standards. EAX and A3D are so called APIs that translate the sounds used in a game into 3-dimensional sounds to ensure an immersive gaming experience

  • Adds DSP effects to external sources

    Enables use of the soundcard functionality for external sources such as TVs or hi-fi systems and turns, for example, a normal TV programme into an enveloping 5.1 channel surround experience

  • 24 bit/96 kHz recording and playback

    24 bit files have a higher resolution and can more accurately define a track than conventional 16 bit technology. Using a true 24 bit playback and recording path, the PC can be turned into a high end home entertainment centre.

  • Easy-to-use Sound Agent 2 optimises the audio experience

  • 96k Hz/24 bit audio DAC delivers high-quality audio

    96 KHz sampling enables you to have an accurate representation of the original sound curves. Together with a 24-bit resolution, more information is captured from the original analogue sound wave form, giving a much richer audio reproduction.

  • QMSS transforms stereo to convincing multi-channel surround

    QMSS turns all stereo sources to convincing multi-channel surround, meaning that all games, music and movies can be heard in multi-channel surround sound, and not just in normal stereo.

  • Adds dynamics back to MP3s that were lost during ripping

    When CDs are ripped to MP3, some of the dynamics are lost due to compression. MP3 Energy Boost dynamically analyses MP3 and WMA files and adds frequencies that were lost during compression. The result is more defined and realistic MP3s that are closer to the original CD track.
