  • Summary: If you're after a new sound card, the Xonar U1 is a decent choice -- it'll even work on computers that have ancient USB 1.1 ports. However, its sound quality wasn't always perfect during our tests, and longer cables would've been beneficial.
  • Pros: It works on USB 1.1 and USB 2.0 computers, the physical volume knob and mute button is very convenient, it supports EAX and DirectSound APIs for gaming
  • Cons: Its USB and microphone cables are too short, no visual volume indicator, microphone produced a lot of echo, some distortion was evident during low frequencies

Asus Xonar U1 USB Audio Station Review

  • Conclusion: To put this conclusion in a nutshell, I have to say that I am extremely impressed with this little external soundcard. This approach has been tried before but with the Xonar U1, Asus has finally got the external sound card formula down to a science. Not only is this unit extremely compact and stylish, but it also comes at a very fair price of under $90 USD. For the price, it represents an amazing value for the quality of sound it can output.

  • Summary: Новинка представляет собой металлический усеченный конус с белым лаковым покрытием. Да, это куда круче, чем квадратик или прямоугольник - привычный форм-фактор для подобного класса устройств. Вид не только оригинальный, но и "дорогой", неуловимо напоминающий продукцию Apple. Верхняя часть конуса отвечает за управление громкостью - поворотом регулируется уровень, а нажатием звук отключается или включается.

  • Summary: Всегда приятно, когда качественный звук можно получить и на мобильном компьютере. Однако компания ASUS не слишком озабочена вопросами мобильности. Внешняя аудиокарта ASUS Xonar U1 была смонтирована во внешнем корпусе по иной причине. Дело в том, что производитель таким образом добивается снижения электромагнитных наводок и, как следствие, повышения качества звучания.
