This review is from: ASUS Xonar DX 7.1 Channels 24-bit 192KHz PCI Express x1 Interface Sound Card
Pros: Nice card. But if you have a problem.....
Cons: Customer Service. I have had this card for over a year & it has worked well in that time. I had a recent build & I decided to put another card in my computer that had the DX card & move the DX card to the new build. The new build had been working fine for about 6 months when I moved the card to it. After the installation when I tuned the computer on it popped real loud & shut down. It would not restart for a couple of hours & when I finally got it to turn on it repeated the same sequence.
So I re-installed it in the other computer that it had been working in & now it popped real loud & shut that computer down. So I RMA'd the card & the replacement does the same thing. So I RMA'd that card & now am having the same problem. During all this time I also was installing the new card(different brand) in both computers & it was working fine. So with the last card when I tried it in the first build it killed the motherboard. I talked to ASUS & they said they would be more than happy to RMA the card. I'm not sure what is the fair thing to do here because I would never cosider putting one of their audio in on of my builds again. By the way I have a new Sound Blaster Zx on the way.

Pros: I wanted to add to my earlier review one point.
Cons: I purchased the back plate for this card. The reason I list it as a con is that this is a very heavy card & should have all the strenght that is possible to keep it from flexing, therefore it should come with the back plate. This is also an expensive card & should be of the highest quality.
Other Thoughts: The PCB on my card had a sticky substance on it. I cleaned this off with this mess with 91% Isopropyl alcohol & a soft cloth. This took about an hour before I could install the back plate. Where was QC?READ FULL REVIEW
