ASUS Xonar Essence STX

ASUS Xonar Essence STX

“ Note: I'm from Sweden so if the wording or sentence structure is a bit off, I blame the Swedish educational system!!    Introduction The ASUS Xonar Essence STX is a two channel soundcard with a built in amplifier and it is a great entry into hi-fi and head-fi, it has a good set of features and handles most games very well, at least with the newer drivers. The card has a good DAC-chip...” --Mr_Owlow

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

Asus XONAR DG CMI8786 Sound Card

“I had this card for a while and it did a decent job powering my AKG K550's and my Ultrasone 650Pros. I could always tell there was more to be had from them though. The sound was good but a tad muddy on the bass end and a tad clipped on the high end.    After 6 months I got static output from the front panel and had to unplug it. After 10 months of ownership the card would output...” --killeraxemannic

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

“Picked up these speakers today,overall I'm satisfied with my purchase. There not the most visually appealing speakers but love the 2 way mid tweeter. If you love bass! The huge sub woofer could be just what you looking for or it could be your worst nightmare as it is just that "HUGE!" Overall they sound pretty good  my only complaint would be a lack of mid bass kinda leaves them...” --Honkytime

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
