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...

Sound is incredible for the money. The built-in amp makes it perfect hard-to-drive headphones

good price

setting up the 5.1 to run with a fiber optic home surround system was a bit of a faff
