Something that will grind the Titanium HD into the dust.

The Asus Xonar Phoebus is yet another atempt from Asus to make a gaming capable sound card, yet such card has lower specs and measurements than their current Essence ST/STX flagship products. The only good thing I see about the Xonar Phoebus is that it is actually a sound card rather than the laughable Recon3D series from Creative, unlike the X-Fi Titanium HD that outperforms every single sound card in existence when it comes to gaming audio, and is basically the best consumer sound card, just like the Essence ST/STX are, albeit with different signatures.

For all that, the Xonar Phoebus is fated to fail. Asus should continually improve over past products, even if it's about hardware available on the market for some time.

Only reason I wrote that was just to see how long it took you to reply.

Here's a friendly advice: get a life.

 

Shame on you for not knowing what to do with your time.

I forgot all about this thread.

Let the questions begin.

post #49 of 51

Well, I'm glad this thread still exists.  Just did a full new build on a computer and trying to remember how to best set this up for gaming performance and music.

 

Mostly I'm wondering if anyone could tell me what dolby, dolby pro logic IIx, and 7.1 virtual boxes to check if any.  Also if there are any other settings I should be using.

 

I'm using 32 ohm Beyerdynamic MMX 300,

 

My current settings are:

2 channel

PCM 44.1

headphone

check in the pcm box

 

If I check the HF box towards the right, it unchecks all of the dolby settings, but do I need them for 3d positional sound while gaming?

 

I'm constantly either listening to assorted music, playing 3d sound dependent games like Battlefield 4 or World of Tanks, or both simultaneously (more WoT for that).

 

Thanks for any help all.

I'm happy that this thread has been rezzed.... Head-Fi needs one like this (after all we've got a very active Sound Blaster Z thread), so a bit of love for all the Xonars (I'm sure we can include them here too) wouldn't go amiss.

Hi,

Can I use this PCI-X sound card to output to my Oritek OMZ DAC v4.1 using TOS link cable (SPDIF) digital ?
