Final Auzen X-FI Prelude Production Pics!
 
The word is, all the waiting is over and the card are supposed to be shipping near the quoted date. Here are the final production pictures including the packaging. The color scheme of the card has changed slightly. Previous pictures had the caps and other components green with black accents. The new card has same components silver with purple accents. The addition of the heatsink is also evident in these pictures aswell as Auzentechs combo optical and Coax digital I/O connectors.

yum! What do they mean by "Coming Soon"? Will that be an addon?

They are talking about more advanced features being added at a later date through software and driver updates.

Hmm looks like a sound card worthy of my computer has shown itself.

Any word at all on pricing yet? I realize that you may not be able to disclose it, but it could prevent me from buying something different, lol!

I heard pricing will be around the same as the HDA X-Meridian

There will also be a HDMI 1.3 X-Tension board coming after the release of the Prelude that will add modern high resolution digital standards. That module will add:

1. Dolby Digital-HD
2. Dolby TrueHD
3. DTS-HD
4. DTS-MasterHD.

That price is alot lower then what I was told. It was rumored it would be about $200 USD. $200 CDN is alot lower.

Well, not with the current exchange rate, but $200 sounds fair to me for this beast.
