4 out of 5 eggs Good for boards without on board audio 10/13/2012

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

Pros:

Easy to install the card and drivers
Decent sound to headphones
7.1 emulation and amplifier on headphones is nice

Cons:

7.1 emulation on the headphones isn't perfect. Hard to explain but the sound is somewhat distorted. I have tested this with both Bose headphones and Aviators.

Other Thoughts:

Best to add to boards with bad or missing sound integration. I went with this card over the more expensive ones because of the built in headphone amp. The amp does work and improve headphone sound but the card overall is just slightly better than onboard sound.

I use an Asrock z75 pro motherboard.
