When Auzentech released their first PCI-Express sound card, the low-profile X-Fi Forte, some wondered when they would create a full-size card.  Well now that time has come.  Auzentech has announced the release of the X-Fi Bravura.  Aimed at audiophiles and home theater enthusiasts who also want to have a top-notch gaming experience, the Bravura utilizes Creative's X-Fi processing chip to provide high-quality music, movie, and game sound output.

Like the Forte, the Bravura caters to audiophiles with a built-in headphone amplifier to help users get every ounce of detail out of their cans.  This amp has its own independent circuit, routing to a DAC, OPAMP, and film capacitors separate from the rest.

The Bravura was designed with the utmost efficiency and performance in mind.  Auzentech's X-Balance Pointing Ground power design ensures audio is delivered free from outside power supply noise.  They have also seen fit to place the digital and analog circuity on opposite sides of the board to allow greater signal differentiation.

My oven has broken, stuck to using the hobs or a mircrowave and our fire has busted so we have to use a electric guzzling fan heater. Not fun.

Delivery vans can't get here so it's horrible.

We've still got about 2" of solid Ice/snow on the busy bits of pavement/local roads and 5" on the less tread paths. It's supposed to snow again tonight.
