The CMI8787 and CMI8788 is a high quality PCI 32-bit multi-channel audio processor that can be built into home audio electronics or personal computers to provide high fidelity sound playback and processing for high-end audio applications. It supports up to 8 output channels which enables 7.1-channel suround sound with High-Definition 192k / 24bit audio joyfulness from only personal computers. Besides, the CMI8787 also provide diverse audio I/O such as S/PDIF (32 bits, 2 channels, 192K), front panel (16 bits, 2 channels, 48K) and MIDI (MPU-401) port. The 8-input-channels architecture of recording is a unique point of the CMI8787 that enables very flexible recording options for users.
