ASUS Xonar Essence STX

ASUS Xonar Essence STX

“ I wanted to upgrade my computer sound card in preparation for higher impedance phones and eventually a desktop amp. This more than does the trick and improved onboard sound more than I'd expected.   The con about it needing a good power source isn't an argument against it. It turned out that my computer (Vostro 420, 2009) didn't have an extra power connection for the card so I ended...” --rroseperry

ASUS Xonar Essence ST Headphone 7.1-Channel Audio Card for Audiophiles

ASUS Xonar Essence ST Headphone 7.1-Channel Audio Card for Audiophiles

“ So first of all, for people who are saying that they are hearing noise from outputs. The only noise I hear from the card is from HP out, when sample rate is set to 44.1 Khz.  What can be the reason of the noise and how to prevent it:  1. Don't use video cards. Use only integrated video. 2. Before buying a PSU read some reviews about ripple and noise tests, voltage regulator...” --Vartan

“Overall a great little card. Dolby headphone is amazing I preferred this card to my Sound Blaster Z, I sold that card when I needed a bit of money and bought this one to replace it for cheap and I actually liked the sound on this one more for gaming.  It has a decent amp built in but if you want to plug another in for using dolby headphone it does not have a standard line out option, so I...” --TsukiNick

Corsair Gaming Audio Series SP2500 High-Power 2.1 PC Speaker System (CA-SP211NA)

“Purchased this system off of Ebay. Overall very good sound, impressive sound output with powerful bass response, at its price point ($250} I think it is the system to beat, the satellites sound nice and bright and do not get drowned out by the subwoofer's bass output at any volume level, this system will definitely get loud and I did not notice any distortion, I mainly listen to music but it...” --Croozer

Asus XONAR DG CMI8786 Sound Card

“ I bought this because i needed an AMP for my superlux hd681 headphones, so I bought this card because it was on my budget. I am really happy with it and with it's sound, and i could not switch back to my old onboard sound, which was best on the market, but pathetic in comparison with this. It is driving my headphones very well, and very loud. I never played my headphones on something...” --spookymulder84

ASUS Xonar Phoebus ROG Gaming Soundcard Set Sound Cards

“While I am an avid gamer and would provide a full 5 star to this sound card if it were purely advertised and functioned for gaming, it dosent quite deliver in the music department right out of the box. I am thinking of the consumer here. It took me a good week of deep tweaking and numerous mods I finally got it to the point of near perfection, in my eyes. Then again everyone is different...” --wem97

Asus Xonar D1 Sound Card (Black)

Asus Xonar D1 Sound Card (Black)

“ This review focuses mainly on the performance of the card from a technical point of view. It most likely also applies to the Xonar DX, which is basically the same card, but with PCIe interface instead of PCI.   The strongest point of these cards is the (CS4398 based) DAC, which supports sample rates up to 192 kHz, and 24 bit resolution (I tested mainly at 44.1 to 96 kHz). The specs...” --stv014

ASUS Essence STX II

“After being a creative fanboy for ever since,decided to try the asus STX II after reading some good reviews about the first one,from users over the net. compared to my previous creative ZXR which the STX II replaces,the sound is more natural,laid back,and forgiving.   Users can talior the sound to their preference with swappable opamp sockets. Stock opamps are MUSES8920 for the I\V...” --raymond555
