OVERVIEW
Enter a new world of home theater entertainment with the MAYA 7.1 surround sound audio
card. MAYA 7.1 provides two high-fidelity analog inputs and eight discrete analog multi-channel
outputs for Dolby Digital 5.1, EX, and DTS 5.1, ES for true surround sound and virtual surround
sound for 5.1, 6.1 and 7.1 speaker configurations.
When watching a DVD movie, MAYA 7.1 can supply a multi-channel surround sound environment
with a digital audio connection to a home theater system or from the multiple analog audio
outputs and a surround speaker system, resulting in audio reproduction the way the movie was
originally intended. For serious gamers, MAYA 7.1 offers the Sensaura 3D sound engine, which
supports of all the major game sound formats including DirectSound 3D, A3D 1.0, EAX 1.0, EAX
2.0, Macro FX, Environment FX, Multi Drive, Zoom FX, I3DL2, and more! Sounds will come from
every corner of the room with this enveloping audio technology.
Listening to and composing music will never be the same. With MAYA 7.1’s optical S/PDIF
output, 48 kHz digital audio data is sent directly to external devices such as Mini Discs. You can
even listen to MP3s and other stereo music in a 7.1 channel, virtual surround sound
environment using the included player software.
Compatibility isn’t an issue since MAYA 7.1's WDM driver supports all versions of Windows
including 98SE, ME, 2000, and XP, ensuring the same functionality under all operating systems.
MAYA 7.1 is the ideal solution for transforming your computer into a complete, multi-channel
Desktop Home Theater (DTHT) system.

HARDWARE INSTALLATION
Before you begin the installation, please consult the manual of your computer for detailed
instructions on installing a PCI card in your computer.
1. Shut down the computer and all other hardware devices connected to your computer.
Leave the power cable attached to your computer, if you will be using the computer’s
power supply as the grounding outlet. Otherwise, unplug the power cord too.
2. Remove the computer’s main cover to expose the available PCI slot.
3. Ground yourself by touching a grounded metal surface (such as the power supply of the
computer). Ground yourself as often as necessary, especially after you’ve been
walking around a carpeted room. Read and follow the instructions on “Handling
Electronic Devices” if you haven’t already done so.

4. Choose an available PCI slot and remove the cover plate (and the screw that holds it in
place) from the slot on the back of the computer.
5. Before handling the MAYA 7.1 PCI card, make sure once again that you are properly
grounded then remove the card from its protective envelope.
6. Align the MAYA 7.1 PCI card with the selected PCI slot.
7. Press the card gently but firmly into the slot until the connector is fully inserted. Don’t
force the card into the slot and never bend it in any way. If the card isn’t snugly fit,
pull the card out and try it again.
8. Using the screw removed from Step 4, screw it back onto the card to keep it from
moving. It must be tightly and firmly screwed on.
9. After the card is installed, replace the computer’s main cover.
10. With the card installed, you may proceed with the speaker and software installation.
