I have no money, but I really like the idea. The EMU 8000 finally gets a quality card design it deserves. 😸

Extensive testing, some minor bugs (or features - we haven't decided yet) are still present.

This is a sound card that I was looking for many years.
Please make it “buy it now”, I am ready to purchase.

Like he said, he's working out the kinks. If you've really been waiting all this time, you'll have patience to wait a few more months.

Btw, I'd like to see a distinctive box design for this project. If possible, something that stands out from the crowd with 90's feel. Box arts in these days are all awfully minimalistic tbh.

Please don't waste time/effort/money designing and producing boxes.

Suppose you just bought a lamborghini and it's towed to you like it is a 96 honda civic.

I'm pretty sure you will not be very pleased.

This card ain't going to be just another cheap noname clone you can pick it off ebay.

Trust me. This will command a decent sum, and you will want a proper box.

I would throw the box away just like I've done with every box for every expansion card I've ever purchased. Why would I keep a box for an expansion card installed in my computer?

This again seems like a really cool project. A good sound card design, for ... an mid to late Pentium I, possibly with MMX, right? Good for Windows 95 OSR2? This is a very cool card. I will add it to the two other cards I am looking at.

Following this as well, cool project!

I don't really care about a box for hardware, modern or retro and I don't think it's really reasonable to invest resources in that for such a "niche" project (no offense, I love projects like this one!).
I only keep boxes for stuff I may store for longer periods of time, when proper protection makes sense or if I know I'll probably be reselling it at some point.

Game boxes, that's another story 😀 but hey, to each his own anyways.
