Great sound, not so great install procedure

Andrew J., Amazon
26 December 2014
  • Summary: The sound performance of this product is great especially for the price, but be prepared to spend a while installing it. I had some issues with the drivers for this card, be careful to install correctly and make sure to create a restore point before you install this.

Great sound card, trouble with driver install

Jordan Sparks, Amazon
29 June 2014
  • Summary: Very good card. I would say that it is a noticeable upgrade from my old Sound Blaster Audigy 2. I did have some trouble with the installation, though. Uninstalling the Sound Blaster drivers was not enough - the Asus installer still kept insisting that it could not find the card.

Excellent sound card

Timothy Chase, Amazon
7 May 2014
  • Summary: Has decent connectivity for the price point, and full 192khz for output. Great high end card for non-recording oriented users. With a micro ATX mobo, I had already used my single PCIx1 slot for a wireless card, so finding a high quality PCI standard sound card was a huge plus.

  • Summary: I use an Asus motherboard and Win 7 64. Removed original Realtek driver via uninstall program, shut down and installed card, installed latest Asus driver from web site and voila worked perfectly. The sound quality upgrade was amazing to say the least.

This a very high profile sound card from Asus

Jennlo, Amazon
1 February 2014
  • Summary: I owned 3 devices from Asus and this sound card is very good at delivering high fidelity sounds, sometimes I get the feeling someone is my room when I am watching a movie or a you tube video; that is how good this sound card is, and the software offers many adjustments and choices to tune the sounds...

Nice sound, be wary of the Asus software

Jeremy, Amazon
27 December 2013
  • Summary: Good quality sound card for the $$ however after the drivers and Asus software installed, my PC would hang during startup. I found that the issue was with the fact that the software installed both the 32bit and 64bit software which was causing a conflict.

Beware, rebates have ended long ago

Adan, Amazon
26 November 2013
  • Summary: The drivers were installed on Win 7-64bit without any problems. The card sounds fine -- not much audible difference from Realtek HD though. Asus control panel is OK, switching between quantization frequencies is sweet and handy if you have both CD's and HD audio sources in your collection.
