Turn off the Immerzio 3D option in your Audio Deck control panel. This way we can make sure that the Envy24HT-S is working fine in your system. This commercial media player is actually quite nice, and has an impressive feature set. There are appearantly versions of Intel Azalia audio chipsets that have a software realtime DD encoder included. Meaning this card looks to be the only HT-S card with customized drivers.

I have not touched one of these first hand, but the card is essentially physically identical to Prodigy. First thing you want to do is remove the drivers for your previous card.

This will result in you being able to pick which wrapper to use from within your different audio programs. This locks you into 2-channel mode, but it routes the sound through the higher quality DAC. Can I use foo bar? Tell me about DACs!

It comes with a Limited Lifetime Warranty, whatever “limited” means. If you are running analog out to a set of speakers, then the better DACs may be worth the money. After reading everything I can find on it, this is what I have found.

The VT output was louder at the same settings probably dB; I have no way to measure this, so I’m just guessing. Welcome to the bit perfect world! The webpage for this card is horrible, as it even lists the chipset used nevy24 the Envy24PT, which is not what is on the card.


Connection types are commonly Toslink or coax. AVS Forum articles Contests.

Integrated support in this driver includes 8 channel outputs stereo expander to experience 2-channel formats using a full 5. Nobody in this day and age should be running a system based on the Win9x core.

The battle is half won! I have heard nothing about this card, but looking at the pictures on newegg, it seems to be the exact same thing as the Maddog Entertainer 7. It succeeds in saying nothing.

They seemed to like it. This isn’t even a review.

I’m not here to make the decision for you, but this should be enough to make a buying decision based on what you need the card to do. Snvy24 are a couple APUs that always seem z stay on the horizon that will do real-time DD encoding, but they haven’t arrived yet. The major difference is that the drivers for the Aureon suck. There were some faint details in a very familiar track that I can’t remember ever hearing before via the same gear but with the Revo or anything else for that matter as the source.


The Audigy is a bit ahead of the Envy24 on gaming, but not by much.

The only disadvantage I see is that you can’t do multichannel gaming unless the game itself supports some special audio encoding like ProLogic II. Falsely states that VT supports khz. Looks like it uses the vanilla reference drivers.

Kmixer is the internal audio component of Windows that does the multi-source mixing. It would have been preferable to have them on the right-hand side of the card. Audigy cards hy going to resample your CD Audio and any I got the winamp asio plugin but it does not list my card when I configure it. If you get an Envy24HT-S card though, things get a little trickier. This is deffinitly a card aimed at the budget home recording studio.
