I didn't want to spend a zillion dollars for a great sound card.
Broken
The DGX does not amplify the front panel header, only the rear which completely defeated the purpose for me.
Bigddybn
This is a great card to upgrade from integrated. the sound quality is much better.

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.

This PCI-Express Asus sound card is absolutely great. There is not a lot to say other than that this card does everything that is advertised to do and does it outstanding. Great sound threw all 4.1 of my Klipsch THX speakers. This card gave this old speaker system new life and the headphone amp is also excellent. It's a great gammer card for anyone that plays first person shooters and would like an edge against the enemy. Really nice surrond effects in headphones or with a surround speaker system. Makes you forget about that lame Realtec on-board sound that's been the main stay for too many years on all boards. This Asus card uses the O2 C-Media chipset that is found on the much more expensive Asus cards.

People are complaining about the software and having issues getting the microphone to work. Well no such troubles for me, it works just perfect with the latest drivers and software available at Asus's web page.

If your looking for a really nice sounding card, that won't make you pay for a name then this is the one. I have been working in I.T. since 1994 and am a Level 3 Tech. This is the most bang for the buck that you will find in a nice slender, PCI-Express 1 sloted sound card, bar none.

Note after working more with the card:

Don't expect the built in amp to work effectivly with the HD front port. It does work however if your using high end headphones similar to my Sennheiser 598's with a rated impedence of 50 ohms you will need to plug into the back of the card and use the software E.Q. to boost your Headphones by 20 D.B.

I tryed various settings with the card and my Klipsch Promedia 4.1's sound fantastic with this card.

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!
