With that said I LOVE the sound this card produces

Adam, Amazon
29 May 2015
  • Summary: So I have only had this card for a day, And I have used it and will only use it for gaming. With that said I LOVE the sound this card produces. I pared it with the Razer Tiamat 7.1 headphones and it is night and day better than the Creative Labs Audigy RX i had.

  • Summary: Awesome sound whether they come through my speakers or my headphones. There's a very clear difference between these and my built in sound card. In game sound really comes to life. I didn't realize what I was missing.

Makes music sound great! As already noted

machuni, Amazon
18 March 2015
  • Summary: Makes music sound great! As already noted, the drivers suck, so search the internet for 3rd party drivers: http://maxedtech.com/asus-xonar-unified-drivers/. Also, if your motherboard has an HDMI output, don't worry about buying this. Your receiver will do all of the processing.

Didn't Install Correctly

Michael Roth, Amazon
11 February 2015
  • Summary: I'd give this a better rating if it installed correctly. Despite following every direction to the dot, I still can't get this thing to work. I guess I got a bad one, but I'll give this one a 3 star since I probally messed up somewhere.

Good product but needs better instructions

J. M. F., Amazon
10 December 2014
  • Summary: Purchased for a desktop upgrade that I am using with my stereo as a music server. Installation was a snap and it works well providing me with an Optical output to my external DAC. However, the instructions for accessing the program and the drop down menus is non-existent.

  • Summary: I really like this sound card ! I was using Via vinyl onboard audio which was pretty decent for an onboard solution but I wanted something better and I found this Asus dsx .The Dsx blows the VIa away so much cleaner more detailed but audio is a subjective thing so yea MY ears like it .

I'm quite happy with my Asus Xonar DSX card and its easy to use management interface.

Great sound card for the price

adam, Amazon
19 November 2014
  • Summary: Great sound card for the price. I have it paired with klipishce promedia 2.1 speaker set. Sound is clear and its able to power its bass. Sounds MUCH better than my realtec audio in my motherboard. Asus audio control panel isn't full of bloat and can be ignored and closed once settings are set.
