  • Summary: I purchased this card used. I didn't get to open the package and install it for several weeks, so when I finally did, I was disappointed. The card was packed in an anti-static bag (a good thing) but was not protected from damage in shipping by any bubble wrap or anything else.

  • Summary: I have built two identical gaming systems for my wife and myself. I purchased this card because I wanted to use PCI-E slots on the motherboards (a card in the PCI slot partially blocks the power supply ventilation intake in my Antec 900 cases).

  • Summary: I originally tried to install under Win8. What a nightmare. Then I realized that Win8 was most of my problem. I reverted to Win7, and have not had the same difficulties. The differences between onboard sound and a sound card are significant.

  • Summary: I will just say what I think. I have always used creative x-fi. The last few years the support and drivers haven't been that good so I switched to asus Xonar. I can't hear the difference at all. The drivers and software still seem like an afterthought. So after saying that.
  • Pros: Price, size
  • Cons: Not any better then any other sound card I've used

  • Summary: This is a fairy decent card, and a huge upgrade from onboard audio. The average PC user will be more than happy with this card. It is a shame that the Xonar DX does not include a headphone amp though. That is the only downfall with this sound card.
  • Pros: Good sound, quality components
  • Cons: No headphone amp

  • Summary: When I slapped this on my PC, I found a good improvement compared to my on board audio (Gigabyte z77x ud5h). This card uses a floppy connector to help power the card, which is a bit harder to keep that clean look, but Asus was saying how it uses that power for a cleaner signal than the one coming...
  • Pros: Black PCB, Easy to install, Good software
  • Cons: floppy connector

Great card. One star deduction for convoluted home theater integration.

  • Summary: New pc build. Wanted to use my pc in my home theater setup so figured I could just use the integrated audio on my mb thru optical and get surround just like my consoles. Found out that Realtek audio through optical only outputs 2ch stereo.
