  • Summary: Asus is known for having completely trash drivers. I took a risk and still pruchased the card as it uses a good chip and components, has good specs, and had everything I neeed out of a sound card.
  • Pros: * Good sound quality when it works. * Swappable headphone amp. * Legacy PCI.
  • Cons: * Horrendous drivers. * "Crashes" which requires a device reset and/or reboot. * Shares spdf/mic port, not an issue for me. * Legacy PCI. * Extremely rare driver updates.

What a shame

Hermes H., Newegg
9 July 2012
  • Summary: I don't trust the popping sound, and what's the point of having a device that doesn't generate sound when plugging in the front panel audio? I suppose i'll stick with my on-board sound for now.
  • Pros: When it works right, it works right.
  • Cons: Whenever the operating system tries to access the card i hear what i can only describe as a static-electrical popping sound coming from the card itself (not my speakers) every time! I plugged in my front panel audio to the card and all of a sudden i could hear nothing but static noise from my spe...

Nice sound, poor drivers

Samuel K., Newegg
25 June 2012
  • Summary: Some better driver + forum support would go a long way.
  • Pros: * Good feature set * Nice price * Sounds great
  • Cons: Terrible drivers. Under Win7 I routinely have to switch between telling Windows to use SPDIF out rather than the 'Xonar Speakers' in the sound control panel because anything other than music (e.g. games) can crash or refuse to start. I appreciate that the Windows audio stack has some responsibili...

figures

Christopher B., Newegg

  • Summary: my only guess would be, 192Khz is too much for it? whats also weird is that to this sound card, 5.1 sound does not have REAR speakers, the NORMAL 5.1 layout says they are REAR speakers behind you, but this card places them as SIDE speakers and outputs audio accordingly, when i tried plugging them...
  • Pros: it tried its best.
  • Cons: Darn thing, last night it took a dump. something pooped out, idk what happened, i did notice it would make clicking noises upon boot up. but then last night, sound quality went to junk, and the center channel was nearly non existent.

Combined Line-in/Mic input jack

Anonymous, Newegg
15 September 2011
  • Summary: I had high hopes for this card because of its perceived quality and high S/N ratio. My goal was to replace my on-board sound with this card for the primary purpose of digitizing my old vinyl record collection, as my on-board sound is a bit too noisy.
  • Pros: Well constructed with good quality components. Low profile design might be a bonus for some. Has features good for gamers which I am not.
  • Cons: Like a lot of sound cards manufactured currently, it doesn't have SEPARATE input jacks for line-in and microphone respectively. As well as never being able to mix line-in and mic sources together, see my "other thoughts".

ASUS Xonar D1 Sound Card

Giovanni, pricebat.ca
28 September 2012
  • Excerpt: Audio WAS way better when using Windows Vista x64/ Windows 7 x64 RC compared to onboard Realtek HD Audio on the 680i. The menu is extremely CLUNKY, the built in presets for audio isn't very good and to fine tune the audio calls for somebody who knows a bit of how to function the equalizer.

ASUS Xonar D1 Sound Card

Edie, pricebat.ca
3 December 2011
  • Excerpt: Overall has a small better sound excellent (in my opinion) than onboard. The key reason I purchased the card was to play video games, and even with the really latest drivers and patches from ASUS, Globe of Warcraft sounds horrible. Lots of popping and cracking and "static".

A disappointment

Susan Mellor, Amazon
16 April 2010
  • Summary: Where do I start? After much researching and seeing the reviews, I bought this sound card to go with my Aego M speakers which I have plugged into my Realtek on-board sound ,which I have to say sounds pretty good.
