  • Summary: I originally planned on buying a Creative Soundblaster card for gaming and music as I have known CMSS-3D to be a joy in gaming, but after a great deal of research I was swayed by not only the high quality chips used or even the countless testimonials from audio gurus, but also by the fact that this...

Excellent audio card

  • Summary: Been using HT Claro+ for 3 years, it is a great card. Tried other Asus audio cards in the past, they weren't as good and fresh sounding as the HT.

2nd ASUS Card EPIC FAIL

DVD Expert, Amazon
17 February 2014
  • Summary: I bought the ASUS Xonar Essence ST audio card to replace a faulty ASUS Xonar D2 card. It seems, after a mere eight months, that this card is faulty, too. It was working fine just last week. Then, when I booted up today, the card was no longer recognized by my computer.
