The X-Meridian hardware installation was straightforward. All you really need is a free pci slot. The motherboard I installed it on
is an AGP, so I had plenty of free pci slots to choose from. It has an FP_AUDIO connector, which allowed me to connect the audio panel on the
front of my case. This was one of the features that was sorely missed on the X-Plosion, and Auzentech corrected it this time around.

The only problem I had with it was that the case I installed in had all the wires individually available instead of a nice 10-pin header.
The X-Meridian manual did not provide the pin diagram for the FP_AUDIO connector. I googled for the pin diagram, and found one pretty quickly.
The software installation was also straightforward. The manual, which is very well written, takes you through the installation step-by-step.
The drivers were easy to configure through the control panel.
