In the corresponding press release the manufacturer reminds that the first Sound Blaster sound card was released in 1989, "permanently changing the sound of the PC". Since then, more than 400 million Sound Blaster cards have been sold, and the name itself has become synonymous with high quality sound cards.

The Sound Blaster AE-9 is the new flagship of the line. It uses the ESS 9038 SABRE-class DAC, which provides a dynamic range of 129 dB, digitization using PCM with 32-bit data representation and a sampling rate of 384 kHz, and stream reproduction in DSD64 format. The card is designed with Nichicon Fine-Gold and WIMA capacitors and operating amplifiers in connectors.

According to the manufacturer, the key difference between Sound Blaster AE-9 and competitors is CleanLine technology - "a new breakthrough in microphone channel filtering for uncompromising voice quality. This technology eliminates power noise problems by eliminating the need for an external mixer.
