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

Brilliant value for money. Oem card but everything there install cd and instructions. Massive improvement through powered speakers for very little money.

For a Small, Cheap Sound Card This Thing Packs a Great Punch, Optical Surround sound Is Crisp And Clear.

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.

worth the upgrade
