    Odd they say the rca on the dac is input. Would've thought card would be input and dac out.

    I had a feeling they was working on another card, and expected a card similar look to the AE-5 but with op-amp sockets. But I didn't expect them to go crazy with it.

    Same audio chip, same USB-PCIe bridge, same 5.1 channels, same SBX Pro Studio.

    Now with ESS Sabre and swappable OpAmps.

    Oh, what a sad state has the PC 3D audio industry turned into. And to think we would need accurate, realistic, 3D rendered positional audio for AR/VR.

    And this recycling of 10 year old technology is what we get.

    PASS.

    Are you sure there's a USB-PCIe bridge? That's something I've read about some ASUS sound cards, but not Creative. (There was a time years ago when Creative had a PCI to PCIe bridge for some of their sound cards, before they did a native PCIe chip - perhaps that's what you're thinking of?)

    I really wish I could use their 3d software without having to use their cards. Or can I?
