  • $199.99 
  • Free Shipping (restrictions apply)

Pros:

Great sound, swappable opamps.

Advantages over the Asus Xonar Essence ST:
* no extra power connector required
* has dedicated optical port (no adapter required)
* DTS encoding sounds better than Dolby Digital Live

Cons:

Died after 23 months of admittedly heavy use.

Other Thoughts:

The Asus does have a longer warranty, but Asus is such a shady company, they would not honor it. Instead they sent me 2 replacement cards, both of which had the same defect. They refused to refund it.

Get the extended warranty. And pray.
