Buyer Beware

Chadwick S., Newegg
30 November 2009
  • Summary: I am one of the many people that grew tired of the disappointment with the number 1 sound card maker so I made the switch to this company. I was very excited when I first recieved the Xonar D2 and heard the crystal clear sound.
  • Pros: Outstanding sound quality
  • Cons: Driver support is horrible. The potential of this card is stunted by the lack of attention given to the driver issues.

Well...

  • Summary: I love the audio quality of this card. It has incredibly good output as far as loudness/tone goes. The bass this thing produces is very nice. Just... I wish I never bought it simply because of the issues with their drivers and their complete and utter failure to correct ongoing problems.

19 September 2007
  • Summary: Asus says it is only compatible in Vista with 2 of their models of boards.
  • Pros: If it all worked as stated on the box, this product may rival Creative Soundblaster.
  • Cons: Well, drivers won't work in Vista64 for 7.1 surround, distorted sound at other times as well. Isn't anyone else getting tired of paying to be beta testers?

Rubbish from the start

Neil Tunstall, Amazon
16 November 2007
  • Summary: As soon as it was installed by a computer engineer, it caused problems, looks very bling with the lights, but failed to live up to expectations and sells literature that came with the package before and after receiving.

Mauvais rapport qualité prix, inutilisable en home cinéma

Albert Ohayon "Fletch", Amazon
8 June 2013
  • Summary: J'ai pris cette carte pour ses fonctionnalités dolby digital live/dts connect (jeux en 5.1). Sauf que quand c'est activé toutes les autres sorties sont coupés. Les sorties ne sont pas configurable indépendamment on ne peux pas dire dolby digital live sur spdif, stereo sur sortie casque ou...
