Razer has expanded into 7.1 HD soundcards, with the Razer Barracuda AC-1 Gaming Audio Card.  Featuring some serious digital processing hardware, and compatible with regular headphones, amplified stereo speakers, 2.1 system, 5.1 system, or 7.1 systems, you really should head to OCIA to get the full review.
“I have a tradition that I’ve had for about 30 years. Any time I get new audio equipment, the first music I listen to on it is Pink Floyd’s “Dark Side of the Moon”. I wore out at least two vinyl records of it, a couple of 8-track tapes, at least one cassette and a couple of CDs, so I can say that I have listened to the entire album once or twice. There are a lot of sounds in it that are easily hidden by poor sound systems, and I feel that it is an excellent test for any sound system. So, I put DSOM in the tray, cranked up the sound, sat back and prepared myself.”
