Summary: First of all the other reviewers may have had issues with drivers for this card, but I had 0 problems. It was as easy to install as pressing "Install". It required nothing more and at the moment, UNi drivers are of the highest quality, offering Low-Latency installation and very accurate Dolby...
Pros: Excellent sound quality; Most awesome positional sound through Dolby Headphone; Low-Price; Stable and Low-latency UNi drivers with accurate 7.1 sound
Cons: Difficult to make it fit into PCI-E slot while keeping it fully attached to case
Summary: Overall a great little card. Dolby headphone is amazing I preferred this card to my Sound Blaster Z, I sold that card when I needed a bit of money and bought this one to replace it for cheap and I actually liked the sound on this one more for gaming.
Pros: Dolby Headphone, Adjustable Impedance, Cheap, Optical Out
Cons: Fit in case is funky, jacks seem a bit cheap, EAX support not very good
Summary: This card is really great if you're looking to power higher impedance cans at a bargain price. Another really great thing about this is that it's microphone input is vastly superior to that of most onboard solutions.
Pros: Great sound quality, good microphone input quality, built-in headphone amplifier, compact size, surround sound simulation
Cons: High output impedance, drivers can be annoying
Summary: Ok I bought this card just for my Schiit Gungnir because my optical output on my motherboard broke off. So I went to microcenter and picked up this guy, the associate tried to sale me and crappy recon3d I knew this guy had no idea what he was talking about because creative cards are mostly codec...
Pros: better than your on board soundcard , crisp clear sound better than creative codecs, 24 bit dac, TOSLINK optical outpu pass through, budget card
Cons: hard to install, drivers suck (get uni xonar drivers and they are still hard to install),
Asus' budget Xonar DGX and DSX sound cards reviewed
8 August 2012
Summary: Despite their many similarities, the Xonar DGX and DSX are different sound cards designed for different markets. The DGX has headphone users in its sights, offering them universal surround sound with slightly hollow-sounding Dolby Headphone support.
Excerpt: Recently there has been a debate about whether modern motherboards are able to produce audio quality that matches dedicated sound cards for gaming and listening to music. This can be largely subjective, as some users report hearing no difference whatsoever, whilst others swear by dedicated audio...
Pros: +Ik heb dit product gekocht als vervanging voor de integrated-soundcard in mijn moederbord. Dit komt omdat er veel achtergrondsruis te horen was als ik aan het praten was met mijn vrienden op skype., Met deze soundcard is alle achtergrondruis weg en kunnen mensen mij eindelijk weer goed horen op ...
Cons: - Ik luister zelf vaak naar muziek, maar het verschil tussen de integrated soundcard en deze soundcard is niet erg groot, tenminste naar mijn mening. Ik gebruik zelf de HyperX Cloud.
