Hi there,

seems like all of you are using your soundcards only for music.. I´m looking forward buying a SE200, but I need to know, if the card does well also in movies / games. Games are on a last position, but I need to know, if its okay too. The other question is about the CPU - how is the CPU speed consumption by this card?
And the last question is on the software coming in with the soundcard - are there lots of settings for the sound? I mean like equalizers (pop, rock, trance, room, hall, hangar,..).
If you have some other solution for a soundcard for myself, please let me know.
I don´t know much about soundcards and graphs, and opamps,....but I know I love beautiful sound - that´s why I was thinking about the SE200
Thanks a lot for your answers & advices..

Or, just a general point of wiev. Thanks.

The modded version is this?
GeekStuff4U.com - ONKYO SE-200PCI LTD

I'd like to know also if there are 64-bit Vista drivers available for this. Everything I find in Google is Japanese...

i'm selling Onkyo soundcards.
you can use VIA drivers for Onkyo (actually better than Onkyo drivers)
VIA Arena - Display Drivers

yes the via drivers support even Vista 64 bit or linux

Sorry I haven't been able to type up a review yet but this is a wonderful sounding sound card, I haven't spent enough time with this. At this point I don't really have any sound card to compare this to other than a Audigy X-Fi Platinum and a basic Via Envy24 sound card, both of which it easily beats. I did compare the line outs connected to a Go-vibe V6 verses a Go-Vibe petite and it smashed the petite!

I like the look of this card and the good choice of quality filtering caps.
After looking at the specificaiton I figured the SNR etc would be higher with the higher quality filtering Caps.
Just for comparison a Xonar D2/D2X will have about a 118 SNR and the new HDAV 1.3 has a 120 SNR for analog mode.
That being said, I would like to have a listen and see how this card compares to others I have heard. This card has a very wide frequency response...

It's interesting that how X-FI Titanium and Onkyo SE200 limited edition adopted the EMI shield idea like what Xonar did..... It like a copycat to me. :P

However, the idea must have helped improve audio quality, so it's still good to see people learning from each other.

Aslong as the industry is improving that is what counts.

I would be very interested in an in-depth review/comparison between a high-end sound card such as this one (or the soon-to-be-released Xonar Essence) and a good dedicated-DAC like the MDHT Havana or the Lavry DA10.

I bought a SE200PCI LTD about 1-2 months ago and I wonder if I can use it directly to a 7.1 amplifier.

Does it support DTS, Dolby Surround and Dolby Pro Logic??? For gaming and movie... Or do I need a 7.1 receiver??? I need to know that!

Thanks

well... hooking it to a 7.1 should be no problem.

But with all due repect, for DTS/Dolby/ and gaming and movie, and even just for music... I suggest change to a Xonar.
Xonar can do real-time Dolby Digital Live, and Dolby Virutal Speaker, Dolby Headphone, and Dolby ProLogicIIx....which are not found on Onkyo cards...

Plus, based on component difference and my own experience of Xonar UI/Functionality/and many other online reviews, I think Xonar has gain its ground in highend sound card market already.

Has anyone made an in-depth review of this soundcard ? The Onkyo SE200 seems a great soundcard but there's still no professional comparing up to now.
