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.

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.

Great sound card. Improved my sound quality allot. Definitely allot more bass in this sound card. Its totally true about 3D surround sound threw headset/headphones. This sound card is allot better quality than my old one. 5 star (Brilliant Product and Seller). Arrived way earlier than the estimated time. Easy to install. Comes with driver installation CD. Slotted in as easy as eating pie. Nice fit and looks great inside my PC.

This was advertised as a 5.1 sound card with a spdif optical output, but what they don't tell you is that asus do not support digital 5.1 output, so the obvious question is: why the hell does the driver NOT support digital 5.1 output?

The card itself does what it says on the tin - it gives me halfway decent surround sound that's no different in quality to my previous (and much older) card, but with a far smaller footprint. However, getting the thing to work in Windows 10 is a colossal pain: the drivers are OS-locked, so you can't install the Win 8.1 drivers (which should actually work) in Win 10, and you can't use any of the surround sound settings without them so your wonderfully-balanced Dolby 5.1 or 7.1 system becomes a not-terribly-clever stereo. Asus show no obvious sign of providing the software in a usable form, so if you aren't fairly tech-savvy then I'd avoid this card.

Functioning drivers are available from http://maxedtech.com/asus-xonar-unified-drivers/#Win10 - once I'd put them on, it all worked a treat. Not great service by Asus, though.

I had huge problems when I tried to fit the creative audigy FX card as it would not play correctly so I returned it. I ordered this as a replacement and I am very pleased that I did. Very easy to fit and the drivers were easy to find on the disk supplied. It plays music clearly and has good bass. Watching video's on you tube is a joy. A good sound card that is a step up from on board sound chips that fizz and pop to much for me. Yes there are better out there but they will cost at least double what this is.

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).

I've been looking for a sound card to replace my ageing Creative X-Fi Music card. I was on a budget so after research on the Internet I came across the Xonar DGX a while back and was interested in it due to the Headphone AMP and the fact that you can plug your front panel audio connectors into this card. I read about many people complaining that the output from the front panel header was quieter than if you had to plug directly into the soundcard, I found this to be completely true, it's not a massive problem but it is something to take into consideration.

There are a few people on the Internet saying that the software and drivers for this card are shocking, once again this is true. The software that controls the card is not good enough, unfortunately the driver is even worse than the software, I wouldn't mind if the software is bad but the driver needs to be good, this is not the case with this card.

The reason I wanted to replace my Creative card is due to it crackling and popping in BF3. After installing the Xonar DGX I found that the sound in BF3 was mediocre and bad compared to my Creative X-fi, after about half an hour of playing I found that I started having echoing problems in BF3, all the gunfire was echoed and extremely annoying. I tried applying alternative drivers that you can find on the Internet, however it involved making fundamental Windows system changes just to get the driver installed which was a bit of a headache.

After a lot of research on the Internet turns out the cracking and popping noises I was hearing using my Creative X-Fi and the echoing on the Asus XONAR DGX is due to dpc latency.
