    The U7 features the same audio processor as the Strix sound cards, but the DAC is different. Strix sound cards use the ESS Sabre 9006A while the U7 uses Cirrus Logic CS4398 and CS4362. Always use drivers and software for the specific hardware they serve. Even the U7 and U7 MKII require different drivers. Which particular functions do you think are missing from the Strix sound cards?

    Well with cmedia xear audio center driver (which i had with xonar dx) i dont miss nothing. It has all features for fine tunning.

    Flex Bass - for crossover all lfe to woofer,which i can hear even with stereo to surround mod with 5.1/7.1 speakers
    Surround Max- duplicate stereo on all satelite speakers when i hear mp3,youtube and all stereo sources.
    Smart Volume
    Xear EQ
    Xear Dinamic Bass
    all others function from xear audio center.

    With Nahimic Audio Enhacer (aka Sonic Studio) driver its pretty much buggy and have much less features for fine tunning strix sound card.

    Look at that software(cmedia xear audio center same one for U7)

    If the main purpose is for multimedia (MP3s, YouTube, and stereo content), perhaps the U7 is a better choice for you.
