About a year ago, I started using headphones heavily on my PC and became dissatisfied with the noisy onboard audio. I thought the best way to resolve this was to get an external USB DAC/headphone amp. While I got amazing sound, it wasn't quite as convenient as I expected it to be and decided a discrete audio card was probably my best choice. I settled on the Asus Xonar DX PCI Express card.
- Stellar 116 dB SNR for front audio ports (112 dB for rear)
- Front panel header
- Dolby Pro Logic IIx and Dolby Headphone support
- Low profile bracket included in addition to regular height
- Great sound quality via a pair of Cirrus Logic DAC's
- Requires floppy-style Molex 4-pin connector for power
- Does not autodetect headphone insertion
- Software-based EAX 5.0 support
I badly wanted to get an ASUS Xonar Essence STX Card, or comparable card with a built-in headphone amp and very high quality DAC. Unfortunately, I found it hard to justify parting with $200.Read more ›
I already had a Creative X-Fi Titanium Fatal1ty in one system, so I only ordered one of these at first to test and compare. It works perfectly, and sounds incredible! The sound is far better than the X-Fi in the other (otherwise completely identical, including speakers) system.
So, I ordered a second card. The original vendor was out of stock, but another vendor was available. However: This card would not properly stay in the slot when attached to the backplane. I tried bending the back support and everything I could think of, but I simply could not get it to stay properly seated.
Therefore I have taken one star off this review for erratic build quality - the full-height back attachment on the second card simply could not be made to properly seat the card.
I have ordered a third card. The first sounds so good I am trying again. I will update this review when it arrives.
UPDATE: The third card fell in between the other two: I had to bend the full-height back attachment a bit, but it fits and sounds fantastic!
Three notes for anyone planning to buy this card:
1) It requires a separate power connection (note the top back corner), using a standard floppy disk plug. I also had to play with which power supply connection to ensure the card is getting enough power - my initial attempt to "daisy chain" the connection off a strand that had several other devices attached did not work.
2) The best drivers are not on the ASUS website.Read more ›
