Creative Sound Blaster Audigy RX 7.1 Sound Card Review
Creative Sound Blaster Audigy RX 7.1 Sound Card Review

Creative had launched their quad core Recon 3D cards and ZX series cards some time back. These were mid and high end audio gaming cards which were well received all over. However, the entry level market didn't have any real compelling options from Creative. The only options were the old Audigy Value and Soundblaster 5.1 cards which were launched many years ago.

With the launch of the Creative Sound Blaster Audigy RX 7.1, Creative is infusing some fresh tech in the entry level sound card market. On paper the specs of the Audigy RX 7.1 are very good Built in headphone amplifier, 7.1 channel support, gold plated connectors etc are all hallmarks of a high end sound card.

Compared to Creative's own higher end offerings, the street prices of these cards have reduced quite a bit. You can pick up their mid end Creative Z sound card for barely a few more $$$ over the TX. (Currently at $85). While the Z has Creative's top end quad core chipset, you also get features like Crystal Talk and Scout in addition to a heat shield and beam microphone.

And ASUS has a few cards at a lower price point though they are older models. The ASUS Xonar DGX sells for just $38 and also has a decent headphone amplifier.

Currently, the Audigy RX 7.1 is priced at $60 which puts it a big higher than the competition (DGX) but comes with much newer hardware.
