Help replace my dead Auzentech Bravura 7.1

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Hey Guys,

 

I just finished troubleshooting my sound issues and it appears that my Bravura has died.  I loved that damn sound card.  It had everything I needed.  PCI-E, replaceable op-amps, and a headphone amp.  I see Auzentech is gone so what is my replacement options with those requirements?

Used Asus Xonar Essence STX sound card, off eBay.

Not sure if that works.  The headphone amp doesn't look replaceable?  How do I get my 5.1 system hooked up?

Sound cards do not usually come with a "replaceable" headphone amplifier, but the Essence STX does come with three replaceable op-amps.

5.1 Speaker system?

The Bravura had a replaceable headphone op amp.  I really enjoyed the LME49720HA.  I have the M-Audio LX4 5.1 surround.  I had panicked at first when I started having sound issues thinking it was the amp in the sub that was failing.  I guess this isn't much better because Auzentech can't fix my Bravura anymore than M-Audio can fix my speakers.  So, I guess I am SOL either way.  I do see some leftover Bravuras on ebay.  Maybe I should just pick one of those up.

Although it is a little older, take a look at the Auzentech Forte 7.1 card as well. You can still find a few online.
