Right now, we are just at the beginning of this development – in the future, there will be less and less DSP based products in the audio market and native processing solutions will get even more important. Solutions like VST plugins or DirectX effects are providing excellent results for professional and even ultra high end professional effects, based on native CPU processing.
Actually, ESI is currently mostly focusing on developing products that are more market-friendly. Most main board manufacturers will have to make compromises which will possibly lower the audio quality. Before the comparative audition I had no subjective preferences — the cards have converters of the same class, and thus I didn’t expect considerable differences in sound quality.
After tests, product is better than manuf states. Ultra-low latency, less than 1. Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Perfect ESI was one of the first companies to introduce kHz and 7. Interface names mean the following applications: Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from unbelievable sound, dirt cheap!

Does it threaten high-quality soundcards supporting high sampling formats, or on the contrary will it draw attention to the high quality sound and promote ei sound devices?
Soind generally believe that onboard DSP solutions on audiocards will soon be history.
Yet, Singapore based Creative Labs has – with some of their E-MU brand products – achieved high dynamic range values on the input section – it is up to the customer aound he prefers a good frequency response or a slightly higher dynamic range, just depending on his specific needs.
