The Xonar DG sound card combines Dolby Headphone 5.1 high definition surround sound with ASUS’ own GX2.5 gaming audio engine and an on-board headset amplifier. These result in accurate and deep audio that brings every nuance and sound across fully, making the new Xonar DG an ideal sound card for gamers who want to remain totally aware of their game environments.

ASUS designed GX2.5 to simulate EAX game effects and makes them available on Windows Vista/7 PCs. GX2.5 will automatically emulate the latest EAX technologies without additional software.

For a low price card, this thing is just great!

Pros: -Makes great recordings using the line in.
- The Dolby Headphone feature was a surprise - didn't know it was there before I installed it. What a great feature. It truly enhances the headphone listening experience greatly! You have to hear it to believe it - movies and music listening are greatly enhanced on my Audio-Technica Pro Studio Monitor headphones. And on such an inexpensive card too...

Cons: Once in a blue moon the card gets in a funky state and puts out static and the PC needs to be reset. But this has only happened a few times over the years.

Best sound card I've ever used.

Pros: A necessary compliment to hifi speakers or headphones. Cleanest, fullest, most consistent performance I've ever experienced.

Cons: No problems at all.

Other Thoughts: Asus has a permanent customer for audio boards.

Worked perfectly for over 6 years

Pros: Worked perfectly for me from 2011 to 2017 in my i5-2500k build, until I decided to upgrade. Sold this sound card and it still works with the new owner!

Cons: None.

Works

Pros: For some reason my on-board sound went crazy and I had to disable the Azalia driver in the bios.
Works on Windows 10 x64 Pro if you go to the Asus site and download the latest driver. I had to use the Google route because navigating the Asus website left a lot to be desired.

Cons: The provided CD didn't even try to install the driver after launching the setup.exe and clicking through.

Other Thoughts: I'm not sure if this is any better than standardized on-board sound since this card is 8 years old but it's better than finding a new motherboard. I'm leaving this review to contrast the ones that say this doesn't work on Windows 10. This card is meant to be put in and then have the drivers installed. It won't show up in the device manager without the driver. If you want to get the optical out to work you will have to enable it in the bloatware that comes with the driver install.

Does Not Have Specific Windows 10 Drivers

Pros: It does still currently work in Windows 10.
It does provide good sound over my old large Logitech speakers (deeper rather than tinny).

Cons: Actual drivers for this card (included in the provided software disk) are for Windows XP, Vista, and Windows 7 and you must use Windows compatibility mode for Windows 10 installs..

Windows 10 had shut down the Realtek drivers for my ASUS motherboard on-board sound.

Other Thoughts: Windows 10 updates just make everything a guessing game. Microsoft wants you to buy their sound drivers. So, I only averted a Microsoft con by purchasing this sound card - for how long remains to be seen.
