If you want to replace a sound card because company a made a shoddy one or won't support it...

Will you get the replacement from company A or look for a company B?

With the general expectation that this sort of thing would be found out (which after it came out in big way on video cards not too long ago) the idea to do this was clearly not well thought out.
