Terratec Aureon 7.1 package included a fair amount of
useful software including MusicMatch Jukebox and
Cyberlink's PowerDVD 4. For advanced editing
capabilities, a copy of WaveLab Lite is included.
To top things off, Terratec included a "HotStuff"
folder on the CD with a great selection of popular
multilingual manual included an overview of the basic
features of the Aureon 7.1 Space as well as detailed
installation instructions. Beyond that, we found
the documentation rather brief, failing to cover the
intricacies of the driver's features. While it's
doubtful that the experienced user will have any major
questions, the novice will be left with little
documentation to help get their questions answered, or
to just get more familiar with their new audio card.

Optical Audio Cable for connecting to the optical
audio input/outputs of the Aureon 7.1.
The Installation CD
automatically runs, launching an intuitive interface
as a portal to all of the CD's contents. Along
with the necessary drivers, there was a nice
collection of other features to be found. This

of every aspect of the card. Along with a
complete overview of the Prodigy's features, detailed
instructions were provided as well as thorough
coverage of the complimentary software included on the

advertisement than an clean, intuitive menu.
Once it loaded, we selected the card out of the list
and followed the instructions along the left side of
impressions of these two cards show each package has
its pluses and minuses. We were pleased to see
two useful software titles included with the Aureon,
where the Prodigy had one in WinDVD4, and even then,
we feel PowerDVD is the better choice. When you
run the two DVD software packages head-to-head,
PowerDVD utilizes less CPU power and has a more
intuitive interface. On the flip side, the
Prodigy's documentation was quite good (although there
is a typo on page 24 that may make some blush).
The manual covers all of the bases thoroughly,
especially with its advanced capabilities, namely the
Native Sound Processor and DirectWire. The
Aureon documentation, on the other hand, was rather
brief in our opinion. Users looking to explore
the features of the Aureon will need to access
additional documentation on the installation CD to get

at each card and see what these two products bring in
quality and functionality.
