AudioMAX Overview 

Dolby Master Studio Certificated

Being the first Dolby certified motherboard manufacturer has helped ABIT   create an audio device capable of reproducing up to 7.1 channels of sound with a high-degree of realism. The ability to author DVDs with surround sound further enhances the user experience.  

AudioMAX

ABIT Engineers have achieved a significant improvement in PC sound quality by relocating important audio components on a separate riser card, where they are isolated from noise created by high frequencies generated from the motherboard.  

S/PDIF In/Out

This technology allows users to connect digital devices, such as CD players, Mini-Disc and DAT recorders with no loss of audio quality. S/PDIF has two channels with a sampling rate of up to 96Ksps and a sample precision of up to 24 bits. There’s also support for multi-channel (AC-3) decoding, ideal for delivering home theater-quality audio experiences on the PC.
