By Albert Alpha on July 2, 2011
After much procrastination, I finally decided to upgrade to Windows 7 - 64 bit. My sound card was the Creative Sound Blaster Audigy SE. The upgrade went reasonably well, the sound card worked, but I could no longer find the Creative Audio Console (with the sound effect, equalizer etc.) It seems that Creative doesn't support the Audio Console for Windows 7 64 bit. I am not a gamer but I use my PC to feed my living room Sony receiver with streaming music and, of course, the music stored on the PC. I needed a good card with minimal effects but good sound and was resigned to pay up to 100 dollars for a replacement to my Creative card. Not being a techie type, I went to Micro Center for a little education.

The sales assistant recommended the ASUS Xonar DG at close to 30 dollars. They also had a more expensive Xonar model (close to 90$). I explained to the sales assistant that I only have two speakers attached to the sound card, plus a line-out connection to my receiver. Surprisingly, he discouraged me from buying the more expensive model.

The card installation went smoothly (I followed the instructions.) No driver problems. The most pleasant surprise was the sound - just great.
The ASUS Audio Center is OK. I set the number of channels to 2, selected the maximum sampling rate (PCM 96 kHz), analog out to 2 speakers. The number of preset effects is limited but adequate and I programmed a couple more by adjusting the equalizer. I did not bother with any of the other selections on the Audio Console. The sound was very good across all music styles (I don't know about games, I don't game). I read a more exhaustive review of the card (after I bought it) here: [...]

I'm glad I had problems with my Creative card software, otherwise I wouldn't have discovered this inexpensive little gem. Highly recommended.

I bought this card when it was above the $20 range... and I considered it a steal. Having built a DIY tower recently and working on another for fun, I can honestly say this is the best,smartest purchase to upgrade your desktop.

Firstly, its relatively small and doesn't require a lot of power unless you use the headphone amp (which I haven't found any need to use... ever). So if you bought a retail desktop, if it has a PCI slot, I cannot emphasize how much of a no brainer this is.

Features & Software:

Before I say anything else, this card will *only* work on windows. I used it for windows 7. There is no linux support whatsoever, anywhere. Unfortunate, but if you own a computer you can put this in, you're likely using windows anyways.

Audio quality is outstanding. Unless you've spent $300+ on headphones or $400+ on "audiophile" marketed speakers, this has a full featured Digital to Analog Converter (DAC) with coverting abilities higher than many consumer USB DAC's. If all you want, or mostly want, is high fidelity music using your desktop as the source, this is high enough quality for most people that spending 5x as much for a music streamer II is flushing money down the drain.

The software's utility is great. Intuitive and easy to use. The surround sound software is great. It can't hold a candle to Dolby Headphone technology (which is hard to find even in sub $200 video cards). What it can do is let you is turn on the 5.1+7.1 features (I advise not stopping at the 5.1 setting, a friend who wanted to try it out agreed there was a noticeable upgrade in sound).

It works too. Lots of claims fall flat, but watching a movie I've turned around before thinking a sound behind me was from my apartment, not the film.

For only Thirty one dollars I spent here on Amazon which included shipping for this Xonar DG I must say that I am am happy that ASUS decided to make a cheap card with a headphone amp. I owned a Xonar D2X and Xonar DX. Also owned creative sound cards and I will never buy another create crap. They don't even update their drivers for their older cards.

After hearing the Xonar D2X and DX I could safely say this Xonar DG sounds near identical. I honestly cannot tell the difference between any of them.
I currently run this card with a Sennheiser HD555 and Denon D2000 headphones and it does power the Denons better than the much more expensive Xonar d2x etc.
It is definitely powerful I have it set on 64 ohms aka pro gaming as they call it.
Its definitely light years improvement from onboard sound. Especially if you use good quality headphones the difference really will be night and day.
If you are using powered studio monitors like the M-Audio and stuff then you want this. Because the quality of audiophile headphones and speakers are so great they reveal the distortion in onboard. You won't notice it until you hear these, when you hear it through this sound card you will wonder how did you listen to onboard all these years.

EDIT UPDATE:

I have decided to give some feedback on the music experience some more. After some burn in and letting my ears become adjusted to it, I have noticed this card sounds warm. It has a warm and lively upfront presentation of music I guess you can also say its bright. I believe the Xonar DX and D2X was a but more laid back, with that said this thing rocks with rock music.

I am listening to the AC/DC albums in FLAC loseless audio and my god are these babies great.
