And again. I was just browsing the web using Opera, clicked some button on an HTML5 website, no sounds were being played by anything on the computer... I had uLilith (ASIO) idling in the background, the noise went away as soon as I clicked play.
I don't think it's got anything to do with ASIO or WASAPI. It never happened when an application held exclusive access to the card, either through ASIO or WASAPI, at least in my case. holden4th might be onto something here. I'm pretty sure that the problems started when I switched from Windows XP to Windows 7 x64.   I've recently rolled back to an older driver version and haven't experienced any noises in a while now (crosses fingers). I'm using the UNi Xonar 1793...

Essence ST.
No, Dolby Headphone is not available with the line-out. You get (IIRC) Dolby Virtual Speaker instead, which works a little bit different but features the exact same amount of terrible.

Some say that there shouldn't be any audible difference between the two. I preferred their sound to that of LME49720s,...
No amp and the onboard sound card is disabled through the bios.   There are at least two threads about this issue on the official ASUS support forums, though, as expected, no actual support has been provided so far.   http://vip.asus.com/forum/view.aspx?SLanguage=en-us&id=20090222084608127&board_id=21&model=Xonar%20Essence%20STX&page=1 http://vip.asus.com/forum/view.aspx?id=20110101010416253&SLanguage=en-us&board_id=21&model=Xonar%20Essence%20ST&page=1
Bump. Any of you still experiencing this? I know it's rare, but it's been a while.   I tried several different driver versions, both unofficial and official, always making sure that the previous installed version's been purged from the system thoroughly. I'm currently using the latest stable official release, Essence ST, Windows 7 64-bit, RCA out. I also went back to my previous opamp setup, 2xLME49720 instead of 2xLME49860s.   And yet, it happened to me again...
I was curious about this so I played it on my portable player with two different sets of earphones, and yeah, it's still there. I don't think there's any pattern to it. It's the recording.
