  • Summary: Agree with other poster - secondary power connector is broken by design. And if you think you have 3-year warranty - good luck!
  • Pros: Great sound
  • Cons: Not the best driver, secondary power connector is broken out of the box, terrible support - 3 year warranty is a lie

Massive audio lag

sky_HALud, Amazon

  • Summary: I had the card for 2 months and tried various options to set it up correctly. I upgraded from onboard audio to get better sound in a game (Rocksmith). Sound quality is better, sure, but the audio lag is just awfully high. My favorite game is a guitar game and when I strum a string I'd expect to hear the amplified and processed sound as soon as possible. Well, with this card it takes a while. Initially it sounds like a small echo but as you play more notes, it gets worse.

  • Summary: I had problems installing the drivers. I grabbed the latest drivers from the Asus website and the install would always freeze. I was about to give up when I decided to try the second latest drivers (from 2010). They seemed to install. The sound I got from the card was pretty good. No complaints with the sound. The Mic in, however, was very unsatisfactory. I happen to have a headset with a sensitive Mic on it. When I use the Mic with this card it picks up EVERYTHING ...
  • Pros: Sounds pretty good
  • Cons: Mic in., Drivers.

Good Gamer, but not for Recording

  • Excerpt: The Xonar DX has very good sound quality but is not useful for multitrack recording. While recording vocals or instruments, it is not possible to eliminate a perceptible delay in the performance and the monitored playback. With its audio interface features, gamers will have a ball with the card's effects and flexibility of signal routing. But recording musicians should not buy this card.
  • Pros: Easy To Install, Easy To Use

  • Summary: I bought this card to install instead of my onboard sound. While the sound is great, especially for the price, I am not satisfied with the software, usage and compatibility of this card. My front panel doesnt kick in automatically, which is a small turn-off, doesnt read my mic and is simply frustrating to adjust in the software given with the card. I dont think its a great buy. Lots of hassle for sound, not worth it.
  • Pros: Good Sound, Good Price
  • Cons: No auto-detection for the front panel, Bad compatibility with Win7 64bit

  • Excerpt: смысл брать ? именно эту не вижу. в встроенной звуковухе на компе, гораздо больше настроек.
  • Pros: работает от обычного псй слота )
  • Cons: нет настройка микрофона, как не пробовал так и не смог нормально настроить шумоподавление и подобные фишки микрофона, так же нет нормального усиления, нет нормальной настройки 5.1, короче я не понимаю в чем смысл этой платы. звук да идет. и не более. убрал плату из компа. подключил к встроенной звуковухе на компе 7,1 , сразу есть настройка 5.1 нормальная. с кучей настроек, нормально настроил микрофон, усиление, шумоподавление и подобное.

ASUS Xonar DX

  • Summary: 5/5 i betyg på hårdvara, ljudet från detta kort är asbra 0.5/5 i betyg på mjuvara, mjukvaran till detta ljudkort är helt horribel och inget fungerar som det ska. Det uppstår problem som inte går att lösa så fort man försöker ändra något. Asus support har vägrat hjälpa folk som har problem i över 4år. Med saker som att ingång för mic inte fungerar, ljudkortet krashar program med DX-mode igång, loopande ljud och fronpanel/bakpanel är helt fuckedup.

  • Excerpt: Чесно говоря разочарован ... сначала тем что была распакована, потом звуком ,раньше была SB Live! 5.1 , думал уж после древней звуковухи Audio-Technica ATH-A700 должны волшебно заиграть ! но чуда не произошло . Да конечно кошмарный фон как в креатив исчез , звук стал поярче (чуть) но разнос какойто слабый тойсть вроде стерео а вроде и не особо ...назову это узкой сценой. самый главный минус что вообще пропал бас !
  • Pros: детализация в роковых композициях
  • Cons: звук резкий просто бьющий в уши , если вам это чтонибуть говорит скажу что ни один ! трек не смог дослушать до конца , на следующий день снял , не смог привыкнуть и здал .
