Pros
Good sound quality with speakers or phones way better and way louder than my on board Realtec sound .
Good alternative to moderately priced outboard DAC and separate headphone amp or amp/dac combo with low impedance phones .

****The DGX PCIe card has some issues and fixes that I've outlined in detail below resulting in a lot of bang for the buck ! *****

The provided built in headphone amp is powerful used with low impedance probably 64 ohm or less phones as specified .
You might be able to get away with 150-300 ohms just fine but volume **may** be reduced I have not confirmed that.YMMV.
If you have 600 Ohm phones you may want to get an amp of some sort.

This card uses the same **or nearly equivalent** DAC chip that is found in many moderately priced but more expensive consumer outboard Dacs and amp/dac combos.
Decent DAC chips have been commodities for many Years contrary to what some would like you to believe this one is no exception and is fine for consumer use. Chip data sheets are freely avail on line .

I bought it at here at Amazon refurb/used and discounted , it came in OE packaging like new or new condition.

I installed with downloaded latest drivers and features for win 7x64 version PCI-DGX-120312-7.12.8.1800(W7-FR-01) (recommended) from ASUS web site . Their web site is a little wonky but once you get signed in the various drivers are there .
Maybe they need to hire some Google ,Apple or Amazon coders.

It works and sounds very good plays nice with windows 7x64hp.The CD included that I did not use is the same file version I downloaded YMMV.

Major improvement for not much money . No brainer if you have been using on board for phones or speakers.

I purchased a pair of corsair vengeance 1300's, just to find out that it needed an amp to run the 50mm drivers correctly. Built in sound from my motherboard was alright, the highs and mids were fine, but there was no bass at all (not flat, but not enjoyable). This card provided the right amperage for the headphones, the neat little equalizer works great for fine-tuning everything in a simple way. I selected the "Pro-gaming mode", which is for 32-64ohms speakers. Normal headphones are under that, and do not need the extra boost.

Pros: Easy installation, great sound, good price, a lot better than mobo sound.

Cons: Didn't know how to get mic working (You need to go in your microphone preferences and disable front-mic)

I would recommend this to anyone who wants to get better sound out of their computer (didn't know it was possible until I got this) and anyone with audiophile headphones. The back plate even matches my XFX 7750 card, which is a plus.

(This is a PCIe x1 card, the smallest slot on your mobo)

I purchased this card for a upgrade from onboard sound. The sound quality improvement was awesome. I have noted several reviewers having volume issues with front panel audio. The solution is very simple: I purchased a headphone/speaker switching unit and it works fine.

I recently built a new computer and was on the fence about getting a seperate soundcard, but when I read so many good reviews on Asus' Xonar card, I thought for the price, why not? The difference is huge! Asus hit the nail on the head when it came to making a card that would suit my needs, a guy who games and who listens to I-Tunes. I am truly pleased with the sound quality that I get with this card. Asus includes a software with different sound mode settings to get the most out of your system. It has to be one of the most bang for your buck things you can buy for your computer. I am so pleased at the difference in sound on the inexpensive 2.1 set up that I have, that I have opted to replace the set that I had with better speakers which should be in this week.
Now gaming and listening to music is much more enjoyable with the new sound card. I HIGHLY recommend these to anyone who is thinking about getting a soundcard. This card will not disappoint!

In case anyone was wondering if this card would work under Linux - I'm running Ubuntu 12.04 on a newer ASUS motherboard. I'm using the optical S/PDIF and all is working well out of the box. No additional driver installs needed. It also looks like it has recognized the headphone jacks as well. I hope this helps if you were wondering.

I got this card to see if an external audio card would actually help with mid/high end headphones such as the Audiotechnica ATH M50s. The headphones sound good without this card, once setup, IT SOUNDS AMAAAAAZING! I cannot say how happy I am with this. Not trying audio with at least so much equipment is an insult to your ears. I'm sold, going to start spending on better and better equipment now haha.

One little problem which is due to my setup is a tiny bit of digital interference, its barely audible and thats only without any sound playing. Its not even worth 0.000001 stars because it doesn't matter.

BUY IT!

When I got the card it worked ok. But in a few days it didn't produce any sound and I had to go back to onboard chip. This is the 2nd card I have bought with the same results.
