Summary: While I am an avid gamer and would provide a full 5 star to this sound card if it were purely advertised and functioned for gaming, it dosent quite deliver in the music department right out of the box. I am thinking of the consumer here.
Pros: Deep System Audio processing is Modifieable, Easy to Install Software modifications
Summary: I have had this sound card for a couple months now, and have found that the quality of sound is very good for the price.
Labelled as a 'Gaming' soundcard, this unit also boasts 118db Clarity SNR, EMI shielding, 3 headphone gain settings (up to 600ohm), Dolby Home Theater V4,, and an analog sample...
Pros: Excellent sound quality, and many sound setting options
Cons: Driver updates are few and far between, headphone gain settings are reset on reboot
: We offer modification options as ideas; however we do not suggest performing any modifications on your new card. If done improperly you can turn your new Phoebus into a paperweight and any modifications would surely void your warranty.
ASUS RoG Xonar Phoebus 7.1 PCI-E Sound Card Review
25 July 2012
Conclusion: This may be a gross over-simplification, but consumers who are interested in a dedicated soundcard typically fall into two broad categories: gamers and music enthusiasts. Usually soundcards try to cater to only one of these niches as both groups have wildly divergent needs but some manage to bridge...
Pros: :, - Good music reproduction abilities, - Excellent gaming abilities, - Controller Hub, - Elegant good looks, - 3 year warranty
Cons: :, - Price, - Not easily replaceable op-amps, - Controller hub can only control stereo and not 5.1/7.1 outputs, - Drivers are still a work in progress, - Music abilities are not decisively better than previous models
Summary: One of the best sound cards you'll hear, right here
Pros: Exceptional sound quality, Most realistic games, ASUS' Xonar series continues to set the standard for add-in sound cards, and its familiar line up of audio processors, DACs and op amps always impresses. The Phoebus really is the best of the lot, though, and makes games sound incredible.
Cons: Driver concerns, Price, The drawback is, of course, the price. This kind of quality doesn't come cheap and while it is audibly better than its rivals, unless you're dead set on having the best and have the speakers and cans to back it up, you really don't need it.
Excerpt: Embora o mercado das placas de som dedicadas esteja praticamente arruinado devido ao bom desempenho das soluções integradas, a Asus continua a apostar em soluções diferenciadoras para utilizadores mais exigentes no campo sonoro...
Pros: Sistema de cancelamento de ruído eficaz | Potente amplificador para auscultadores
Conclusion: A Xonar Phoebus não é uma revolução no mercado das placas de som internas, mas é uma evolução de alta qualidade dos modelos anteriores. Oferece uma excelente qualidade de som e inúmeros recursos dedicados aos gamers, é uma placa de som que oferece qualidade de som digna do segmento audiófilo, mas...
Conclusion: Softwaren virker rigtig godt, den er simpel, overskuelig og ganske let at finde rundt i. Lydkortet opdager selv hvilke stik der er tilsluttet noget, og kan derfor let sættes op til hvordan højttalere, headset, mikrofon samt digitaludgang skal fungere. Asus’ ROG Command virkede efter hensigten.
