For the longest time I had been a Creative user, up until my Audigy 2, which I compared to my onboard sound and was actually impressed with the onboard, not to mention the terrible support for Creative in the last few years, but I'll skip that.

The Xonar D1 is an extremely well performing card. This is especially true for music. I have a very broad taste in music, from classical, jazz, rockabilly, ska, hip-hop, indie, whatever (no country) and everything sounds amazing. It's indescribable, but it's just like this card is able to convey just that much more that my Audigy, and the onboard couldn't. Not to mention the Dolby headphone setting. It's sometimes very easy to forget I have my cans on. It handles video and gaming well too, but music is its biggest highlight. The control center has a lot of features, a great sampling rate, and SNR. My only complaint is the I/O panel. There is an optical out, and a line in, shared jack. Other than that, I'm 100% satisfied with the card.

I use it in Win 7, but with the Vista x64 drivers, works no problem. It also works fine in Fedora 12 x86_64. Alsa picks it right up. It would be nice if there were more software support, but it works well enough as is.

This sound card does work well with the included driver. I was very happy that I finally got hassle free 5.1 through the fiber optic port. Before this card I was only getting stereo through SPDIF. This is a nice improvement for video games and movies. I really like that the equalizer works even on the digital output.

There are two significant problems with this sound card that you should know about.

1. The ports are close together on this card, so if you're like me and use big fat high quality connectors they won't fit next to each other. With such a high signal to noise ratio I expected them to expect me to use these cables! If you are using the digital output you won't need to worry about this problem.

2. None of the Asus drivers support vista and 7's enhancements. The card does have it's own enhancements that are probably better than what windows offers except for room correction. Room correction allows you to correct the frequency response automatically using microphone calibration. It works very well to balance all the channels in your system. I would not have complained about this if asus had included an equalizer for EACH channel but that is not the case.

I understand that most people do not use room correction or high end 3.5mm connectors but that was a big deal for me.

I debated for a while between getting this sound card or a desktop unit like th schiit bifrost. Having a LYR on order already and deciding that it would go on my desktop I decided to get a soundcard instead of the bifrost, it doesn't hurt that sound-cards are WAY cheaper then desktop units as well, as even the most expensive ASUS card is around $200 bills.

1. First off if you're going to but this unit, DO NOT use the asus drivers, use this: [...]
It's a modded driver that works much better than the asus one. I had plugged in the D1 and spent the better part of an hour trying to get it to work. Then when finally I had the driver installed sound wasn't coming out of all the ports, just one of them. To fix this I tried to go into the asus sound manager which didn't open because it said the card wasn't properly installed...which it was. By using the sound manager from UNI it fixed all these problems in a matter of seconds after it's installation.

SOUND

Yes this is why we buy these things...

This card gives GREAT sound. And after to doing a lot of research the reason I got this card is because I use external headphone amps and have powered M-Audio DSM speakers. So I didn't need the extra juice of the Xonar essence. So if you are like me and use either a receiever/amp or have powered speakers (as most computer speakers are), there's no reason to get the extra juice and headphone amp that the essence has. This is rated with a 116db signal to noise ratio where-as the essence has a 120 rating. If you can tell the difference then god bless you but I certainly can't as my friend has the same card and the sound is just as good on both.

The sound quality compared to my asus P67 motherboard is night and day.

I'M TYPING IN ALL CAPS SO YOU CAN HEAR ME OVER THE BRAVEHEART SOUNDTRACK I AM PLAYING.

This is an absolutely amazing sound card. Unlike the Creative sound card I used to have, there's absolutely no sound coming out of the speakers when there's no sound playing. None. There's just no noise. It's all pure audio goodness.

Also, the Dolby Pro Logic II sound decoding is perfect. It directs all the right Dolby audio channels to the correct speakers, unlike most sound cards which have a "surround effect" feature that either replicates the front 2 channels to all the other speakers or tries to fake it. This is real, Dolby patented surround sound.

I've used a number of audiophile grade sound devices and none of them have reproduced music as well as this card. The highs are crisp, the mids are center stage and the lows are punchy and significant.

I've heard some complaints about problems with Windows 7 drivers. My only problem was that I had to re-install the drivers once. After I did that everything worked perfectly.

The only problem I have experienced with this card is when you're using it in Ubuntu, your computer hangs for a few seconds with each notch you adjust the volume.

Note: If you want Dolby Pro Logic II Surround you have to turn it on and turn off the EAX. Dolby decoding is not on by default.

Use these settings in the Xonar DX Audio Center application:
* Audio Channel: 2 Channels
* Sample Rate: PCM 192KHz
* Analog Out: 5.1 Speakers (or 7.1 if you have 8 channel speakers)
* SPDIF Out: Off
* Check the box for Dolby Pro Logic IIx
* Uncheck the box for 7.1 Virtual Speaker Shifter

This gives you Dolby decoding for your music and movies without needing a separate tuner.
