ASUS Xonar DG 5.1 Channel PCI Sound Card Review

 

The inclusion of integrated audio solutions on every motherboard pushed discrete audio solutions into the luxury purchase market. So why do people still purchase them? Today, we are going to look at the Asus Xonar…

Clear, Full Body Audio on All Channels ; Built-in Headphone AMP Supports Headphones with up to 150 Ohms of impedance ; Includes Low Profile Brace for low profile HTPC cases ; Well written User's Manual

Included Quick Start Guide is almost useless ; Audio Quality not Noticeable with Low Bit-rate Audio Sources

One of the first things you should do is read the full Xonar DG 5.1 User’s Manual from driver CD. It provides not only descriptions and pictures, but also provided details about what each feature does in very easy to understand language. This is a plus...

Great improvement over on board audio.

 

This board is such an improvement on the 7.1 on board audio of my Gigabyte motherboard (GA-MA785GMT-UD2H) running Windows 7 (64bit). My only regret is that I didn't buy it sooner.

Top value sound card

 

I bought this sound card recently because I was looking for one that was more low profile so it wouldn't cause obstruction with the cables in my case, like my Creative X-FI Extreme Music card did.

A Creative Beater

 

Agree with all the comments regarding excellent sound, but for me one great feature is the on-board front panel connector - no more grovelling around the back of my PC to plug my headphones in, but seems strange you need to access the control panel and...

Absolutely worth it

 

I'm not really an audiophile, and I've made do with onboard motherboard soundcards. My P5QL Pro has a realtek ALC1200 onboard soundprocessor, and it was quite adequate.
