This is an entry for Phoronix LCH. Feel free to comment on the Linux compatibility for the Chaintech AV-710 in this thread.
Description: Inexpensive 7.1 audio card that runs on the awesome Envy24HT chipset from VIA. 24-Bit audio with sampling rates up to 192KHz. Hardware Notes: No known drivers for the specific card, but Albatron PX865PE drivers work well because they are both essentially the same. Does not include a gameport, but does a S/PDIF port.
