post #91 of 1781
I guess we won't be sure about that until they release the ST, although I might go for a STX, can't wait that much. would it be THAT much? because "before xmas" is way too much for me :P

1)whenever I'll have the ST, I will run DBT/ABX w/ several other ppl and synchronized foobar's....some other ppl in this thread do have the ST and STX but refuse to do so, for political reasons I'd guess

2)the best indication you will ever get is "soon"

They have announced the card and they are shipping to the reviewers first. They ship to store shortly after that point.

If you think the ST might have something to offer you, wait for the reviews. This will put you in a better position to make a informed decision on which is the best match for you.

Not much difference to head Fi listeners this card?

The only thing I am sure about now is that ST is about 1500TWD more than STX, that's about 40USD more
Hope it really gives us something special...
post #97 of 1781
arghhhhhhhhh, how do you know it's US $40 more expensive?

I think I'll pass if that's the case, I haven't updated my brain w/ cyborg parts yet...so the 1ppm clock would -most likely- make no audible difference to my only human auditory cortex

New cards are priced by region using the MSRP. Usually all you can get is a guess until the card actually hit the shelves in the various area.

The information I have is that cards are price in a similar fashion, I guess we will wait and see.

yes, I know, but it really sucks.. we don't know if it would be 2 weeks soon or 2 months soon .. anyway.. I have to import it from US to Argentina so I'll have to wait at least 2 months or so

well, for what it's worth they've added it to the Asus forum....but still not a word on their Xonar website.

Well, it's the price of Taiwan actually
The STX is sold at 6400 there while ST is sold at 7900
That's about 40 USD by simple calculation...
