  • 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.

  • 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 .
