Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi HD USB Audio System with THX SB1240

Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi HD USB Audio System with THX SB1240

“ Decided to write this review to hopefully answer any queries anyone may have.    The creative X-fi back last year, was one of the best DACs out there with very good value for its performance, conducting some tests with RMAA, I found that it has good 18 bit performance and true 16 bit performance that was pretty much unmatched by any DACs at that price back then (there is now the...” --firev1

Asus Xonar DGX

Asus Xonar DGX

“This card is really great if you're looking to power higher impedance cans at a bargain price. Another really great thing about this is that it's microphone input is vastly superior to that of most onboard solutions. The drivers work well most of the time, but sometimes mess around during installation. Also, like most dedicated sound cards, it has a high output impedance so it might not be well...” --SSSN

M-Audio Audiophile 2496 MIDI Digital Recording Interface

“ Thought it great until I recently comparered its analog out to the DAC on my Onkyo TX-SR876 receiver...   Although good to a point, it failed in highly complex loud music passages like the Choral movement of Beethoven's 9th Symphony..... where as the volume and the number of instruments and voices increased, the 2496 could not keep the sounds seperate.... they become muddled/mixed a...” --dlaloum

Creative Sound Blaster Z Series ZXR (70SB151000000) Sound Card

“I built my first ever PC with this sound card, I had already brought a Asus board that has SupremeFX and well the ZxR dethroned the Asus immediately. I have not heard any of the Asus Xonar PCIe cards but anything is better than integrated onboard sound.    The sound cards look beautiful to me except for the cable that connects the main card to the daughter board, they could have...” --Nada190

It features adjustable "THX...” --Evshrug

Onkyo Japan SE-300PCIE Wavio PCI Express Sound Card

“Don't get me wrong - it's an amazing soundcard. I've had an Asus Xonar Essence ST w/OPA627AU, but SE300 are simply on another level of this. so, some facts about SE300: -) There is no front_panel output (HD_audio) -) 7.1 output sounds ok, better then Creative Titanium. -) Headphone_output are really good. Headphone_amp of Essence ST, for example, have much more power, but drives low-impedance...” --Ilya--s

Audiophilleo 2

“ Never have I found an audio component that costs $1000 with benefits as big as that shown by the Audiophilleo. I have not tried using it without the PurePower upgrade (as it is an irreversible upgrade), but the combination of an AP2+PP results in detail I never thought my system had the capability to expose.  ” --absolutk
