5 out of 5 eggs This card sounds "sweet as good honey.". 07/07/2012

This review is from: ASUS Xonar Essence ST 24-bit 192KHz PCI Interface Audio Card

Pros:

Doesn't overburden your cpu with its power cord input. Wonderful hassle-free setup. I was pleasantly surprised with the controlled crisp sound quality with both active bookshelf speakers and good headphones.

Cons:

Sound has a little short pop sound that comes out of speakers or headphones when Win 7 64 boots up. I think it's due to my overclocking. However it's not that loud at all, and I'm used to it. It's not really a con to me, but may be for some that boot up everyday.

Other Thoughts:

I really didn't expect it to be worthy to be herald in the "hifi" territory because for the price when compared to other options that I have tried I find this card to be a downright bargain.
