Urgh, not even close. I guess I was blinded by the white circuit board.

Hmm...VT1723 'Tremor', not as good as 'Envy'. :/

If all you want to do is pass the bits unmolested out to an I2S connector, either should get the job done, although only 6 output channels vs 8. If seems to indicate only 2-channel I2s, but if this actually sends all 6 channels of I2S to that connector it may be a very interesting card indeed.

All what i am hoping to achieve is to use this in my new PC-central with big disk array for playing my Flac files and movies in stereo only. ( i take it from the description that this card is stereo)
I have found that the Esi [email protected] is great but it is a bit out of my budget and has allready more functions that i can need, so i was hoping that this card may be cheap substitute. It seems that the only way will be buying one and testing it. :)

hate to break it to you but the x-fi has excelent specs:
Creative X-Fi
Indeed for CD playback where the SNR of 16bit linierly quantised data is only 96dB (theoreticly) the xfi is more than good enough with a SNR of 113dB in the 24bit tests linked. Cards like the [email protected] are for recording multiple channels and have balanced outputs not for better stereo playback. Save the money and get some more CD's ;)
