Digit-Life wist een AOpen AW754 geluidskaart te bemachtigen en schreef er meteen een uitgebreide review over. De geteste kaart was een OEM versie en miste daarom enkele features zoals de optische ingang, maar toch bleek de Yamaha DS-1E audiocontroller in combinatie met het SigmaTel STAC9708 codec in staat om voldoende mogelijkheden en kwaliteit te leveren voor een redelijke prijs:
A bit on game possibilities of the card. As an any normal man, I don't care how many bits have codecs on the board if it plays mono and makes noise. Or how many DirectSound streams it supports if the sound is like from a gramophone. Here, the quality of 3-dimensional sound in games was determined by one word - Sensaura. If you know it, you'd understand me. The others would hope that in a cheap solution one can combine all popular 3D interfaces without performance and quality sacrifice. As for me, I prefer only one game where the EAX 1.0 via the Sensaura algorithms checks itself perfectly and outperforms the well-known A3D on the Vortex2, with its unfinished emulation EAX. The game is Crusaders of Might & Magic (by the way, made quite dull). In order to enjoy 3-dimensional effects you have to download a demo from the Internet (it looks like Diablo 1, but in 3D). Those of you who possess a full version of the game should come to the second or third stage since only there you might see dynamic actions and only there we could estimate EAX technology.
