4.0 out of 5 stars Sounds good so far..., 24 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: ASUS Xonar D2X/XDT - Sound card - 118 dB SNR - 7.1 - PCI Express x1 [PC] (Personal Computers)
Ordered the Xonar D2x/DT sound card as like everyone else I was sick of the onboard supplied sound that is really terrible, especially when gaming.

Arrived nice and promptly and layered in packaging - so everything was in top shape when I unpacked it.

Once removed from the box I plugged it into the floppy power connector and found a spare molex and the plugging in was complete.

Slotted into the PCI-E slot and screwed down - power on and installed the drivers I had downloaded from ASUS website and it worked straight off the bat.

I have ordered a cheap 5.1 speaker system as I dont want to always be wearing headphones when gaming and I watch a lot of movies on my PC so I thought a mid range speaker system will run nicely on this card.. I will add my comments once the speakers arrive and I have chance to hook everything up..TBC...

It looks great in my case and I have a blue theme going on in my windowed Fractal R4 case and I know a lot of people have taken the cards shroud off and unplugged the orange light. Not me.. It is not a big deal for me having a variety of colors as long as it's not red and it is a pretty looking card so visually thumbs up 5/5 score.
I also like the fact that the rear sockets/ports for the RCA and SPDIF connectors light up the color assigned to that input. BRILLIANT got a nice rainbow light show going on behind my PC - you can never have too much color ..lol

Once I have used this card some and see how it works with a set of £70, 5.1 speakers I will add to my review.
