Today M-Audio was nice enough to send over a sample of their consumer audio card, the Revolution 7.1. I have had some wonderful experiences with their very high quality professional gear, so I was eager to see what they had come up with for the home market.

Here we have the usual set of specs taken from the M-Audio website:

  • PCI solution for high-quality surround sound up to 7.1
  • 24-bit/96kHz audio playback on up to 8 channels; high-definition 24-bit/192kHz audio playback on two channels
  • digital out transmits PCM, AC-3 and DTS (coaxial)
  • DTS output and Dolby Digital 5.1/EX (6.1 DVD) decoding
  • 8 analog line outs (4 stereo 1/8" mini jacks)
  • true professional 24-bit/96kHz mic/line recording (1/8 stereo)
  • SRS TruSurround XT delivers virtual surround with stereo speakers
  • SRS Circle Surround II transforms stereo content into surround
  • game support with Sensaura, EAX, DirectSound and A3D
  • powerful control panel for bass management and other features
  • supports all popular media players including Windows Media 9
  • includes valuable entertainment and music creation software

Here are some pictures of the packaging.


Nice and clean. The box has way too much information on it, but one quick look at the lower right corner of the front will tell you everything you need to know.


That's right, this sound card puts out high-definition 24-bit/192kHz audio playback and has 24-bit/96kHz mic/line recording. There are very few cards out on the market that can boast those numbers. As an added bonus, this card works with both PCs and Macs.
