ASUS Xonar Essence One Muse Edition 24-bit 192KHz USB Interface USB DAC and Headphone Amplifier
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs This is audio bliss. AMAZING DAC! 04/21/2013

This review is from: ASUS Xonar Essence One Muse Edition 24-bit 192KHz USB Interface USB DAC and Headphone Amplifier

Pros: One of the best DACs on the market in this price range and out performs others that cost a lot more. I've heard quite a few DACs and internal computer sound cards and the Muse Edition is in a league of its own. It produces a very realistic sound that is very three dimensional, you will hear music in a way you have never heard before. It has a very life like sound and you will be able to hear every detail (instruments, vocals, effects) in a very musical way that just makes you smile while listening to it. It has a very smooth sound that is non-fatiguing and is very lush. This is an amazing DAC and will compete with the best in the market.

Cons: It is not cheap. But you get what you pay for.

Other Thoughts: This is as good as it gets for a DAC when it comes to sound production. There are much higher priced DACs out there that but you are not paying because they sound better. You will be paying for their boutique looks and you would also get diminishing returns.

ASUS Xonar Essence STX Virtual 7.1 Channels 24-bit 192KHz PCI Express x1 Interface 124 dB SNR / Headphone AMP Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: I have owned quite a few sound cards including the Auzentech Prelude and have returned them all due to being unsatisfied. I have finally found a sound card that actually delivers. Xonar Essence STX sounds so beautiful; it is the most realistic sound I have ever heard on a computer sound card. It's hard to believe that a computer sound card on a consumer level actually delivers audiophile sound. Hopefully, other companies can take notes and bring us quality products. I am enjoying listening to my music collection all over again. Just hearing the instruments and vocals it sounds like it's live. You have to play high quality files to take advantage of this sound card. Movies sound absolutely stunning. I installed the latest drivers from the Asus website and it works flawlessly with Windows Vista Ultimate 64bit. I didn't bother installing the ones that came with the CD. I am extremely happy so far.

Cons: I just wish they had support for 5.1/7.1 analog and this sound card would the ultimate computer sound card (not that it isn't already). If you have a 5.1 or 7.1 system and if it doesn't support digital then you may want to look elsewhere.
