Welcome to the ARGUS DIY EU region page!


What is it?

ARGUS is an advanced clone of the classic GRAVIS ULTRASOUND PnP soundcard that is made
by user shock__ and distributed now as a DIY project for the EU region from this page.

You can read more on the ARGUS project on this lenghty VOGONS thread.



What do I get with this DIY kit?

You will get a high quality PCB with an original AMD INTERWAVE chip that is the brains of the UltraSound PnP card.
You have the option to have the INTERWAVE chip pre-soldered on your PCB - or not.
There is no extra soldering fee, the option is there for the people that want to do all soldering by themselves.

In order to have a complete card you will need to acquire all other needed parts, everything is detailed in
the "ARGUS_final_doc.zip" file that is found in this post.
The .zip file contains all needed documentation such as partlist, component map, BOM, installation notes and useful
programs to make an operational ARGUS soundcard.

You will basically get the a PCB with the Interwave chip just like in the above photo, nothing less
nothing more. The PCB will be of the last revision of the ARGUS design - so there could be some
differences due to improvements.
