ASUS Phoebus

Anonymous, Newegg
12 October 2015
  • Summary: I would buy this again as long as the control box is working and recommend it to anyone who do not have any quality audio on their MB.
  • Pros: The sound quality is amazing, and the LEDs on the control box are a very handy feature when playing in a dark room when trying to plug in a headset. The LEDs on the card look amazing inside the case and give it an extra customized look.
  • Cons: After having the card for only a month the volume control on the control box quit working. I've updated all the drivers and have even tried uninstalling and reinstalling but nothing seems to work. I took off two eggs for this because the control box was a main feature for purchasing it. It's can ...

just okay

  • Summary: the reason I bought this card is I like the Dolby home theater 4 application, which gives me much more option to adjust tonality and equalize to my preference. With that said I feel the card is overpriced for what you receive it seems that my sound quality actually went down from what I received...

  • Summary: The quality of the sound card is fantastic, better than any Creative I've seen. The software settings and dolby manager are great additions to what should be a fantastic product.

Not as good as I thought

  • Summary: If you have a Xonar DX2 or Xonar Xense go ahead and stick with it.
  • Pros: I currently have the Asus Xonar Xense which is totally awsome. I decided it was time for an upgrade to the Phoebus; unfortunately, I was not impressed. This card is aestheticly pleasing but as for the sound quality it almost sounds like a downgrade (see cons)
  • Cons: There are no presets on this card (e.g. soft rock, rap, classical, ect...) Also, after setting up the equalizer to the way I liked it the actual quality of the sound sounded more "digital" than normal, like there was some kind of audio affect enabled but could not find one

Like having a Lexus, without the tail-lights!

  • Summary: Bought it, to power a 7.1 Razer Tiamat. Didn't like the Tiamat. So figured why am I spending $200 on a soundcard I'll never use. No fault of the card, it worked well enough. Although, one glaring thing that the engineers at ASUS missed is color coding the ports in the card!
  • Pros: Bleeding edge technology.
  • Cons: C'mon, are you kidding me with the color coding?

  • Summary: Very nice looking card and the sound from movies is brilliant. However I am very upset that there is no software support for playing games in full surround from the digital optical out, it only works for movies.

Now for the "BUT" ,it seems to have a driver issue that stops you playing some games on line (bf3 being one).This is a total shame gived that is basicly...

  • Excerpt: Звук хоть и в разы лучше встроенного, но уступает более топовым моделям, цена которых приближается к цене этой карты.
  • Pros: Звук лучше встроенного, подсветка разъемов, хороший внешний вид, качество ASUS цена на момент покупки (4,300р)
  • Cons: Подскочившая в последнее время цена, на которую можно купить гораздо более качественный аналог. Необходимость доп питания. Звук во многом уступает аналогам за меньшую цену.

  • Summary: на днях купил эту звуковуху, подключил под 5.1, первые впечатления не очень, звучание музыки порадовало ,но с позиционированием возникли проблемы,т.е задние каналы при тесте играют вместе с передними, с единственной разницей в громкости, т.е если я тестирую правый задний динамик играют оба задние и...
  • Pros: хорошее звучание
  • Cons: щелчки в динамиках, при тесте каналов , тыл проблемный. Хотелось бы думать, что сырой драйвер.
