Product Description

Product Description

The Xonar DGX audio card combines Dolby® Headphone 5.1 high definition surround with the ASUS-exclusive GX 2.5 gaming audio engine and an on-board headphone amplifier. These result in accurate and deep audio that brings every nuance and sound across fully, making the new Xonar DGX 5.1 an ideal audio card for gamers who want to remain totally aware of their play environments.

The Xonar DGX uses three modes to cater to different usage scenarios: voice, pro-gaming, and exciter modes. Sound positioning helps gamers become better informed of environments and thus more competitive, especially in multiplayer first person shooters.

The exclusive ASUS GX 2.5 gaming audio engine on the Xonar DGX 5.1 allows up to 128 different sound effects simultaneously for a realistic 3D audio environment. It also offers full compatibility with the latest version of EAX®.

The Intel® HDA-compatible front-panel header automatically switches output between the back and the front of the case once speakers/headphones are plugged in. Never again will you be bothered by the need to change connection settings manually!

been on two minds to buy a sound card since I bought a set of bose speakers which did not sound any different to my cheap speakers I had. anyway my sound on my computer did not work and therefore was forced into buying the sound card , looked at the reviews and this one shone out from the rest ,price wise as well. on receiving the card I was sceptical but once installed I couldn't believe the difference the card made compared to my on-board sound , the clarity was superb and crisp clear sound. money well spent. made me realise how poor quality the pcs are from new and I am now looking to upgrade my graphic card.

So I went looking around if i needed a sound card and got a TON of bad feedback about them including some... strong language at why I asked the question, but I got one any way.

Delivery was not a very effective route, First Poland then Germany then to London, The package went around the world but thankful not in 90 days! I did get it in 4 working days but I think there could be a better route it could take.

This device performance was better than what my motherboard did, Not only did it fix the bad quality with my speakers but it also made loud sounds more cleaner!

My motherboard is a cheep ASUS M5A97 R2.0
Headphones both Sony 24ohmz and Skull candy's 32ohmz

So as you can see i have not got a very powerful headphone setup but I did notice the performance difference

Hope this helps.

This is quite a good sound card, they can be buggy as a lot of people including myself have received broken cards. Amazon replaced it and it has been working well since. The sound is great and so is the surround sound, my only problem is when i am gaming I get a buzzing sound through my headset, I have tried it with 3 different types of headphones, moved my graphics card an sound card further away from each other but still no matter what I get a buzzing sound. Anyway i am only using this until I can buy a better one, so yeah it is quite good for its price but not something you would permanently use ( for me anyway).

The product is great, I noticed a difference in sound quality through my headphones and my speakers. Deeper Bass, and better med to high frequencies. This helps when I play things like CoD.

The only problem with the device, is the UI for the driver and card controls is awful, I actually hate it, It keeps switching to FP headphones all the time whenever I turn my PC off. When playing music, it comes out of my speakers and my headphones at the same time. Yet one is Line out and the other is Optical.
It's not picking up the 5.1 from my headphones, I configured it briefly for about an hour and then it went again.
It's un-intuitive, controlling, and it's generally a horrible experience.

As for the actual product, it's amazing, but don't expect to understand the driver straight away, or even after a month or two, It's just a right pain.

I haven't bought a dedicated sound card for years as once they started to be incorporated onto MB I couldn't see the point. I have had PCs since the first 286 IBM machine came out, my first sound card was a sound blaster as they were the best and probably about the only make available at the time. I have bought this Asus card to fit on an Asrock extreme 6 MB to use with my Kingston Hyper cloud MK 1 headphones and not only was it easy to install the difference is significant both hearing and speaking in part due to the card having its own headphone amplifier and also in part due to the software which is actually pretty good. Installing was easy and everything worked first time icluding the front output. The card automatically switches to the headphone when I plug them into the front socket otherwise they run the Altec Lansing 2 speaker system with sub woofer and once again the output and quality is much improved both games and music have greater clarity, no white noise even when the headphones or speakers are put on full volume. Using the headphones and soundcard with gaming is also a marked improvemnent giving you a greater idea in FPS where the enemy is and adding to the immersivness of the games. Driving games are better allowing you to hear your own car and cars close to you a lot clearer and if they are trying to overtake on the inside or outside. All in all I am very impressed with the card, the install and the software. I used the unified drivers and these have been faultless. Next time I build a PC I will without a doubht look at putting in a dedicated sound card Im also pretty sure they will be better than an in-line USB sound card as come with the Hyperx Cloud MK2 headphones.

I bought this to plug into my home theatre system and because it was fairly cheap with good reviews. I am left disappointed however as the spdif port looks to only support 2 channels instead of the 5.1 i was expecting (my home theatre system only has one spdif and one aux input). The sound is still better than my onboard was and for £20 i guess i can live with it until i can afford to upgrade to a higher end card.

After using on board audio for quite some time i decided to upgrade to a dedicated sound card and it was worth it everything sounds much clearer.
