Audiotrak Prodigy 7.1 HiFi

Posted

Pros: HQ audio, Spdif in and out,swapable opamps.

Cons: No dedicated headphone jack

Detailed, neutral, CRYSTAL clear sound. No extra noise, hiss or hum from PC, superb source for 96/24 sound.

 

The "VGA" on the left side goes for breakout cable that breaks it into 5 3,5 jack connectors where You can plug headphones.

Some people claim that included opamps can drive most headphones, some even said it can drive AKG K701, I tested it and i can confirm most headphones do well without additional amping but AKG's need more, way more power then stock opamps can generate.

 

Build quality is extremly solid, just check the picture :)

Audiotrak Prodigy 7.1 HiFi
Description:

The Prodigy 7.1 HiFi is based on the powerful VIA Envy24HT (ICE 1724) audio controller and the Wolfson WM8776 / 8766 codecs, providing 2, 4, 6 (5.1) and 8 (7.1) channel support as well as optical digital I/O with 24-bit/196kHz support. To provide stable high level output signals, Prodigy 7.1 HiFi uses a fine selection of high quality capacitors from Sanyo (SP series) and from Nichicon (up to 2200uF RU series / Nichicon ES series) to optimize the power supply of the analog and digital components on the card and to optimize the audio output quality. The special design of Prodigy 7.1 HiFi with its 4 layer PCB cuts off electromagnetic waves from the internals of the PC – there won't be problems with an unstable power supply caused by the systems CPU or the HDD. A separation between the analog and the digital part using an aluminium cover that shields the sound against electromagnetic waves is a major part of the Prodigy 7.1 HiFi design. Even better, the OpAmps on the card are installed on sockets, providing the possibility to change them to the users preference.
