3 out of 5 eggsBeware any rebate

Pros: Followed steps listed in prior posts to install. Works with headphones. Haven't tried it with speakers yet.

Cons: Claimed they never received my rebate; fortunately I have copies of everything. Mailed 3 rebates to Asus and two other rebates at same time at same post office; both other two rebate handlers acknowledged receipt within two weeks; Asus claims they haven't received it and told me to resubmit.

5 out of 5 eggsDriver-

Pros: Nice sound. Nice Linux driver support.

Cons: 3ed party driver for Windows 10. The 3ed party driver works just find, however. No HDMI issues or optical audio issues after the drive. I like Linux- great to know that some companies are trying to dump windows and support Linux.

Other Thoughts: Good buy. Happy after drivers setup.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Sterling sound. The accompanying app to configure the sound is very impressive; lots of configuration options and soundscapes to choose from.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I had been using the mobo's onboard audio but some of the games caused weird motor-sounding audio artifacts. I ultimately determined the frequency of the artifact was tied to the graphics FPS delivery.; somehow the (hi-end) graphics card was introducing interference. The sound card eliminated that annoying artifact and now the audio is clear.

4 out of 5 eggsASUS Xonar DGX

Pros: A good alternative for on-board audio.

Cons: Metal bracket is too short and won't allow for the card to be placed correctly. Before I figured out what was the problem none of PCIe slots recognized the card.

Other Thoughts: This is my second Asus product I purchased recently that gave me a headache. I bought 144hz Asus monitor and DVI-D cable was all messed up. I had to physically bend it in order for it to fit. I won't be buying from Asus anytime soon.

5 out of 5 eggsX-cellent Card

Pros: This card is worth every penny that I spent on. It revived the sound of my old PC audio speaker set that I bought for $25. The sound quality is 10x better on this card compared to on-board sound. Listening to music with on-board and this card is almost like switching from mono to stereo back in the old days.

Cons: No CON yet.....

Other Thoughts: For those that can't tell the difference in sound quality between this card and on-board, they must have been listening to music too loud for too long so they can no longer distinguish the sound quality anymore. Or they must have a super high-end motherboard with super high-end on-board sound which I haven't found one yet.

3 out of 5 eggsDetection Problem Solved

Pros: + Cheap but commendable
+ Comes with a mini-ITX I/O plate just in case
+ Works in PCI-E 2.0 X16 lane

Cons: - Detection failure (read below)

Other Thoughts: Let's cut to the chase. The driver installation of this audio card is extremely non-user-friendly. It refused to install on my Windows 8.1 platform,

saying ASUS Xonar DSX Audio does not exist, the installation program will be terminated now."

Thanks to the internet, I found the solution.

The below steps were made while:
a. On board audio was still active.
b. My audio card already installed but idle.
c. Windows auto driver installation is off.

STEP:
1. Open DEVICE MANAGER
2. DISABLE On-board audio and my graphics card's relevant service
3. Restart PC and ENTER BIOS
4. DISABLE on-board audio in BIOS. My motheboard classifies this under SOUTH BRIDGE ADVANCED SETTINGS.
5.Save & Quit and re-enter Windows.
6..Check DEVICE MANAGER. The previously elusive audio card shows up as UNKNOWN AUDIO CARD.
7. To run the official driver for Windows 8.1, extract it and then ENTER THE WIN81 FOLDER. Use the setup.exe inside.
8. Follow the steps and restart PC when the driver asks so.
9. Plug speakers/ headset to the audio card's jacks just in case you forgot.

I hope this helped and you need not to RMA your audio card.

1 out of 5 eggsSound Card not recognized

Pros: none

Cons: Doesn't work. Pages of support topics to comb through trying to figure out how to fix the "no device detected" error. Solutions involve directly reprogramming the device hardware. What?

4 out of 5 eggsWorks good

Pros: A little over a year ago I bought this soundcard. While I have mainly been using my mobo audio (ALC887) due to setup restrictions, however bar far I prefer this to the ALC887. The control panel software is what makes this card worth it. It allows cool audio features that you simply can't get with a generic sound device.

Cons: That it's 96KHz

Doesn't make too much of a difference but even the ALC887 supports up to 192KHz. Not sure why you have to pay a premium for the extra Hz.
