My computer hasn't been upgraded much since I built it a few years ago. When I built it, I decided to go with integrated network adapters and audio. My aBit motherboard's onboard audio was a reasonably good Realtek HD audio chip so I was content to stick with it rather than buying a discrete audio card, like I'd done in all of my previous builds. I decided the convenience of having integrated components was worth the small sacrifice in quality.

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.

PROS:
- 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

CONS:
- 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.

Works great,very easy to install. I have Windows 7 (64 bit), so I needed to install the Vista 64 divers (The driver/utility disc that came with the card). Please read the manual before installing, because it has the words "need to connect the power for card to work" on the second page...of course I didn't read the manual when I made my first attempt to install the card...so I learn about that later after reading the manual.

The gauntlet has been thrown down! The Xonar DX literately kicks the snot out of Creative and the X-Fi chip. I bought this card as an Upgrade from my X-Fi Extreme Audio <exactly the same as the fatality but minus the on board ram, which is why i think they discontinued it> For my HTPC after reading the sound room reviews on several websites. I paired these up with my Gigaworks S750's and the heavens opened!!!! I could not believe the dynamic range difference and the depth and clarity of the audio! First up was Era, The Mass <a DTS album> and i heard nuances in the music i had never heard before and the sound was pure as gold. To be fair i tossed in a Mannheim Steamroller Christmas cd <standard audio> and again, dynamic crystal clear sound digitally reprocessed by the on board Dolby pro logic II. Now I have been Playing all of my Nightwish DTS albums and The Metallica Black DVD-A album rediscovering my whole library. I tossed in my old card again just for an on the spot comparison and it sounded flat and stale. Hands down i would say that Asus is the new ruler in PC audio and Creative is going to have to get off its fat butt and try to keep up. If you can afford it i would go with the Xonar D2X it has the DDA and well as the DTS on the fly encoding for piping out to your Home Theater Speakers if you so desire, as well as a higher quality DAC, a bunch of extra cabling and an EM shield over the card. I hope to buy a D2X in the next year and put this Bad boy in my gaming PC, forever retiring Creative. Hail to the New King, Baby!!

I have built two identical gaming systems for my wife and myself. I purchased this card because I wanted to use PCI-E slots on the motherboards (a card in the PCI slot partially blocks the power supply ventilation intake in my Antec 900 cases).

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.
