ASUS RoG Xonar Phoebus 7.1 PCI-E Sound Card Review

Hardware Canucks
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 the gap between the two. Gamers want a feature rich audio product which enhances their immersion into big-name titles while retaining high quality sound fidelity.
  • 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

Asus RoG Xonar Phoebus review

TechRadar UK
18 June 2012
  • 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.

  • 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. Jeg kunne sidde og spille Battlefield 3 med højttalere aktiveret og bruge boksens mikrofoner, uden at det på noget tidspunkt blev et problem for dem jeg sad og spillede sammen med.

  • 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 que tem os gamers como público-alvo.

  • Conclusion: Ses kartı konusunda kısa zamanda pazarın önemli markalarından biri haline gelen Asus, R.O.G. serisinde konumlandırdığı yeni modeli Xonar Phoebus ile oyuncuların dikkatini çekmeyi başarıyor. 7.1 ses çıkışını analog veya S/ PDIF üzerinden sağlayan ses kartının en önemli özelliği, hiç şüphesiz kutusundan bir kumanda ünitesiyle beraber gelmesi. Ünitenin üzerinde kulaklık girişi ve mikrofon çıkışı var.

  • Pros: Geweldig gedetaileerd geluid. Goede (in tegenstelling tot Creative) drivers. Volgende aankoop zijn goede speakers :D
  • Cons: het is te overkomen, maar een aansluiting voor 't frontpaneel van je computerkast ontbreekt. Prijs mag voor sommigen nogal hoog zijn, maar je krijgt er wel iets voor terug.

ASUS ROG Xonar Phoebus (+Video)

  • Summary: Mit der ROG Xonar Phoebus liefert ASUS eine gut klingende und leistungsfähige Soundkarte für Spieler und Enthusiasten ab. Nicht nur technisch kann die Karte überzeugen, sondern auch das umfangreiche Softwarepaket gefällt. Vor allem die räumliche Wiedergabe wird ambitionierte Zocker überzeugen. Die Control-Box ist ein nettes Gimmick, welches aber puncto Verarbeitungsqualität nicht so ganz zu dem positiven Gesamtbild der Phoebus passen will.
  • Pros: sehr gute Technik, top Klang, Control-Box, Anschlussmöglichkeiten, sehr gute Raumklangsimulationen, gutes Mikrofon
  • Cons: teuer, unübersichtliche Software, Verarbeitungsqualität Control-Box
