Final Thoughts

 

 

Well, I never thought Creative would let another company use their proprietary technology, but I guess I was wrong and Creative knew what Auzentech could do to improve on an already proven design.

 

The Prelude 7.1 is not just a bare bones Creative X-Fi based solution to nudge the margins a little for the company, it's being designed by Auzentech from the ground up to be a value solution that offers the fidelity of the X-Fi chip without the staggering software suite that Creative bundle with their products which inevitably pushes prices up and up.

 

Instead, we have a slick, slimmed down product with all the good bits minus the heavy price. A fantastic product indeed, and well worthy of the TweakTown Editors Choice award.
