!0The very successful Envy24 (24 bit / 96 kHz capable) is now available to the mainstream PC community in another form, the Envy24HT.
VIA did some changes from the Envy24 to the new Envy24HT. First would be the lack of the 20-channel 36 bit wide digital mixer, which
is very useful for audio studio processing. Second is the extended sampling rate of 192 kHz, from the 96 kHz Envy24 is capable of (making
it the first audio controller on the market with this feature). And third is the new 7.1-channel support. As we clearly see, VIA cut down
the digital mixer, useful only for studio processing and mixing, in the Envy24 and instead added new features, like the 192 kHz sampling
rate and 7.1-channel output. In a few words, the Envy24HT is a chip intended for the consumer market with studio sound quality."
