You do look down on non Creative sound hardware.
you said in a previous statement that "Asus sound cards are akin to USB DACs with software package installed", which means I guess that you think using the C-Media audio processor is waste.
So do you think that if Asus (or any other sound card brand) left out the C-Media chip their cards would function the same, if that were possible, would not Asus leave out the C-media chip and save on manufacturing costs.
When there are lots of different brands and types of sound cards on the the Market.
You selective criticize the Asus cards when your trying to prop up Creative sound cards.
You target Asus cards, like a white racist targets selected minorities about societies problem, instead of criticizing all the different brands of sound cards that use the C-media audio processors, you always focus on the Asus brand only.
I advise you to read what I wrote. I'm talking about the software packages that USB DACs with partial gaming support have. Asus soundcards have as much gaming support as those specific USB DACs, not general purpose USB DACs.
Asus makes quite nice cards, just that the brand has blatantly advertised features it can't do, it's quite simple. What is it that you're not understanding?
