5 out of 5 eggs Awesome Card 10/11/2011

This review is from: ASUS Xonar DG 5.1 Channels 24-bit 96KHz PCI Interface Sound Card

Pros:

Inexpensive
Very inexpensive
Popped it right in and instantly noticed the difference
Low profile
This is the first time I have ever decided to spend money on a sound card, I just never thought that I would see a difference. Boy was I wrong, I wish I had done this years ago! It is defiantly like night and day when playing Battlefield 3 Beta! Had to tweak with the settings a little bit in order to get the best sound but I didn't mind.

Cons:

The manual that it comes with is worthless. The driver for some reason took forever to install and then when they reached the end it stated that it could not find my sound card. After a reboot it was fine. Win 7 Ultimate

Other Thoughts:

Some advice for Windows 7 users. I was having problems with the card not picking up my microphone. I went into windows sound panel and into the microphone properties. Under the custom tab I unchecked the box for "front mic." As well in the Xonar audio center, on the bottom tabs go to the VocalFX tab and make sure "VoiceEX" is checked. My mic was working fine after that.

If your hearing a low buzzing in the background click on the Listen tab in windows microphone properties and uncheck "listen to this device." See if that works.
