Probably called "VIA DXS", i've four of them on my mixer... Here the
soundcard works, but the audio is far from high quality, seems the
bass are completely missing. =)
More strange, the first DXS control the volume of the first audio
source, but if i run another audio application, the volume of the
second DXS control the second source...
