Chose this rather than the PCIe version as the PCIe version is exactly the same but requires an additional power connector because they didn't bother updating the architecture to run it from the PCIe connection.

For some reason Win 7 64 bit does not recognise the card as installed when you first put it in. This was resolved by starting the driver install from disc, which then hangs as it can't see the card, then just reboot and it magically appears, then reinstall the driver.

First impressions were good, much, MUCH, better for headphones. Bass was actually noticeable and music is clearer across the board (not just louder, but much better depth). A real improvement for your headphones.

However, I did have some issues with some occasional noise/crackling when listening to music.

This was resolved by using the Xonar Unified Drivers, which are basically optimised and up to date drivers which have the bugs removed. The unified drivers are made by some talented bloke for free. Search google to find them. If you are wary of downloading stuff off the internet (as you should be) search the asus forums where these drivers are mentioned and highly recommeded by the community there.

Hoenstly, with the unified drivers the sound is noticeably improved over the latest drivers that Asus offers online, so please do get them.

Without the unified drivers this soundcard would get 3 or 4 stars, with the driver it is a clear 5 star winner.

I have a pair of AKG K550 headphones and these sound great with this card. Not as good as when connected directly to my Marantz CD player, but much better than I would expect from a PC with a 25 quid soundcard.

Only had this product a week so possible edit's to this review as time goes on.

I wanted a Sound Card to accompany some headphonesDenon AHD510 Over Ear Headphones - Black I received as a Father's Day present I settled upon this one due to cost and overall reviews on Amazon and other websites....I am very happy with my choice.

Package arrived after 2 days of me placing the order it is an OEM product so no box just the card with a manual and driver discs

Installation was easy enough....open computer case find a empty PCI slot remove back panel push card in and screw in (this took a little bit of fiddling as it didn't line up exactly but with a few tweaks it screwed in, then you need to locate the front panel audio cable for my motherboard this was easy if unsure check the manual that came with your Mobo.

After install I rebooted my computer and go nothing didn't automatically detect BUT I didn't expect it to after I popped in the driver CD loaded up and away we go..to go from this to onboard sound is a big leap the sound difference when music is being played through my monitor's speakers isn't that different 10-15% louder on 100 volume but plug the headphones in and it opens up another level of sound quality I am currently at 60 volume and at a a quarter to half on Youtube depending on the song and that is plenty.

Using the Audio Centre is also easy and the 7.1 surround sound is a great feature especially when watching films using the headphones...Overall a very good entry level,cheap but powerful soundcard to the point I am thinking of getting some decent speakers to really do it justice.

Happy giving my music collection a new lease on life.

I am shocked at the difference between having a sound card and onboard sound. This may only be an entry level cheap end of the market but it definately does the job well.

I've been using a pair of AX 720s on my onboard Formula V sound and i kept getting a cracking/popping noise which was driving me nuts. The sound quality was good, or atleast I thought it was good...

I've been listening to my favourite music for the best part of an hour now as if it were the first time I'd heard the songs. I feel ashamed to have spent so much money on my other pc components and headset while overlooking such a valuable piece.

A definite must have and for the price it's amazing.

Bought this for our ageing MESH PC to upgrade the internal sound as it was showing signs of degrading.

Originally went for a SoundBlaster Audigy SE but this just locked up the PC (even though its only running Windows Vista) and after hours of updating drivers and playing with the BIOS I had to give up and return the card for a refund. Creative's website was less than helpful as it regards this card as legacy and out-of-support! Needless to say I will never buy a Creative product again.

So when I received this card it was with some trepidation that I went to install it. However, no problem! In went the card, installed the drivers from the Asus website (easilly located) and we had a card up and running after a reboot. Fabulous!!!! Only one small issue was that the microphone input had been disabled beacuse the installation had defaulted the input to the "front mic". Once this was corrected by unticking the box in the Custom tab of the microphone properties window everything was fine.

Blown away by the sound quality for gaming and music. The difference between this and the onboard sound is just incredible! The headphone settings are awesome and I love the xonar audio panel where you can customise all your sound settings.

This card is an amazing buy for under £25.
