Although I've been impressed with every Envy24 implementation to grace the Benchmarking Sweatshop, there's no getting around the fact that M-Audio, Mad Dog Multimedia, Chaintech, and Albatron aren't exactly household names among mainstream consumers. However, Philips is, and they've jumped onto the Envy bandwagon with the Ultimate Edge sound card. The Ultimate Edge also marks the arrival of a new addition to the Envy family, the Envy24GT.
Targeted at high-end sound cards, the Envy24GT brings true 24-bit, 96kHz audio to six output channels for only $70. Philips has also stirred in some special sauce of its own, giving the Ultimate Edge a little more spice than your average Envy24. How does the Ultimate Edge perform, and more importantly, how does it sound? Read on to find out.
