Summary: This card was a replacement for a Sandblaster card that finally gave out after many years of use. At first I had a grerat expriance with it easy to install and the drives worked flawlessly. Listing to music with the card was incredible. This all stop when I played any game or watched a movie.
Summary: I really did try to like this card, it has a lot of potential. Sound quality was better than the Sound Blaster Z it was to replace and its EAX implementation worked better in most older games than Creative's own EAX! Main issue is with the drivers.
Summary: Purchased the card on Sept 4th 2012...Loved the card till it died Sept 6 2013. Asus is not responding to any support requests. Asus ...You need to work on your support system. I'm afraid to buy your products even if i prefer them due to you support system.
I am not impressed with its performance. Also, it's dead within 10 days. High end pricing and less than average everything else.

Summary: First: I ordered this product January 8 through Amazon's Warehouse Deals as a used product. I paid $127.47 total. I had it delivered overnight and received my package on the 9th. I am writing this review at 6pm on January 19th. My card is no longer detecting my headphones or microphone.
Summary: I bought this primarily for the noise cancellation feature, to be used while gaming. The headphone output is very good; clear and powerful. Unfortunately, it turns out the card has a major problem with electrical interference, and the interference is directly related to the load on your machine.
Summary: sound card nice product pitty it wasnt broken still under garintee but cant get it to take affect getting passed about from amazon to asus. 2 ports broken on it. Dont think much point of asus 3 year garintee. very disapointed with asus.
Nice looking soundcard but driver issues are a serious flaw.

Summary: Have been an avid PC gamer for some years and have changed my PC spec time and time again. Was looking for a good gaming soundcard as my older soundcard gave up the ghost, Did alot of investigation into the latest tech and came across the Asus Phoebus.
Excerpt: Если Вы зритель / слушатель - это Ваш выбор, но если хотите использовать ее при написании музыки - просто замучаетесь, причем мучения эти будут безрезультатны. По ошибке она у Яндекса в "профессиональные" попала.
Pros: Действительно мощный, богатый звук. Есть инструменты, что позволяют настроить звучание "под себя".
Cons: Для меня было разочарованием в том плане, что общали дать возможность не только слушать, но и творить. ASIO там просто нет! EAX... Не знаю, может оно и включается где-то в игрушках... Такой желанной вещи, как EAX Control Panel, и в помине нет. В общем, работать с секвенсорами с ней нереально, и п...
