Extreme Hardware heeft een review gepost van de Xitel Storm Platinum, die net zoals de MX300 en Montego II over een Aureal Vortex II chip met A3D2.0 support beschikt:
The Xitel Storm Platinum is based on the high-end Aureal SuperQuad design, with both 4-speaker output and a S/PDIF port. The S/PDIF output lets you hook the Storm Platinum to your home stereo equipment through a pure digital line, which is definitely a welcome addition for the home entertainment buff. Xitel is also promoting its use with mini-disc players and MP3 recording. The ability to have 4-speaker support isn't something I had really appreciated until I tried it out. With the proper set of speakers (I use the Midilands for front-end power and the Logitech satellites for background effects) the 3D acoustics are incredible with dual speakers instead of a single set. This 4-speaker feature also puts it firmly in the Diamond MX300's league and ahead of the TB Montego OEM.
