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

Creative Labs X-Fi Titanium HD PCI-E

Creative Labs X-Fi Titanium HD PCI-E

“Ingame shotgun sound from behind actually freaked me out first time I heard it and had to check my back!   If you want a sound card, then go high-end or not at all. The motherboard inbuilt ones can do sometimes better than cheap soundcards. This one is a bit more expensive, but very high-end and will make a huge difference! You will be left to wonder how you lived without. Crystal clear...” --Validus

Onkyo Japan SE-300PCIE Wavio PCI Express Sound Card

Onkyo Japan SE-300PCIE Wavio PCI Express Sound Card

“This is a great sound card, full featured for gamers, home recording, and home theater, as well as traditional high-end audio.   I am only interested in it as a source for high-end audio (2 channel) and my review only considers this one aspect of its functionality.   Notes in passing,   1. Drivers install without a hitch on Win 8.1(64 bit) and seem stable, so hopefully...” --rjm003

Creative 70SB150000000 Sound Card

Creative 70SB150000000 Sound Card

“I got this sound card to replace my Asus Xonar DG which died on me. The difference in sound quality between this card and the Asus is quite noticeable. Much more clarity and crispness in the high end. Bass seems punchier and more detailed. Power output seems like it is much better as well as I don't have to turn my headphones up as much as before.    The software that comes with it...” --killeraxemannic

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

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

“ I owned the HT Omega Claro Halo card a week before this, mostly for the headphone amp. I RMA'd it for this one and WOW am I glad I did. Even though they use the same hardware, the headphone amp on this one is at least twice as loud. It powers my cans almost as loud as I would want them too, it does a amazing job. This is a extremely good choice for headphones and replaces the need for more...” --RushNerd

Asus XONAR DG CMI8786 Sound Card

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

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
