Default Asus or Auzentech Sound Card? Help!

Hi everyone.

I'm looking at getting an Asus Maximus Extreme-Z and it doesn't have any PCI slots.
I currently have a Auzentech Prelude PCI card.

So, I'm looking at upgrading my sound card, to a PCIe 1x - Should I go asus or auzen?
I really like the auzen sound quality, excellent bass and treble etc.
I'll be normally running an Edifier S550 5.1 system, and some of the time using a Y splitter to run my Z2300 with it (does this degrade sound quality...?)

I will be using the sound card for listening to music primarily, but I do game often too.

How are the Asus drivers? Is it possible to change the bass and treble amount via the software, and separate speaker sound levels? I really like the auzen drivers, and have had no problem with them.

Can anyone recommend a solid sound card for me? (I don't know which opamps etc etc are better/worse than each other!)

Some sound cards out of say...
- Asus Xonar Xense
- Asus Xonar D2X
- Asus Xonar HDAV1.3
- Auzentech X-Fi Home Theatre HD
- Auzentech X-fi Forte
- Auzentech X-fi Bravura

Money isn't too much of a problem, I just want the highest quality audio solution I can get!

Thank you so much for reading this :)
