  • Conclusion: 内容导航: 总体而言,这款华硕Xonar HDAV1.3是一款很优秀的声卡。其强大的全频解析能力和对双D的支持令其成为了高清音频用户最得力的助手,它无论是在乐器众多的交响乐,还是高清影视中都有出色的表现。 从应用性性来说这款声卡的确是非常值得购买,无论是对高清音频发烧友,还是欲组建高清家庭影院的朋友来说,Xonar HDAV1.3的确是不可多得的声卡,至少目前只有它才能够满足您挑剔的耳朵。 不过从更加的实际的实用角度来说,它的报价将成为影响大家选择的重要因素,另外,它还有一款带有子卡的豪华版,官方定价2199元,普通版则为1699元。这样的价格对音频发烧友来说虽然比较昂贵,但非常值得期待。
