Meh..... it's alright 6/25/2019 7:00:03 PM

Pros: Same brand of mainboard I have
It was a deal when I got it, others were noticeably more in price
Clears the second M.2 drive's "cooler" I have underneath it.

Cons: Marginally better sound than the already decent sounding mainboard's audio; and I do mean marginally
Driver can be difficult. Remember to set Windows' Sound Card settings first to 5.1 or 7.1, get the settings to stay, THEN install the drivers.

Overall Review: Can be difficult to configure and as another reviewer said, reverb's on by default and it sounds tinny at times. I go the best sound out of it by installing the drivers, turning everything off, then using the graphic equalizer. I left the Logitech Z5500 5.1 set at flat and middle volume; the dorm where I used to live people would come down to the Rock Club when I let them go full blast.... The sound was okay but I won't lie. I went back to the mainboard's soundcard because it doesn't try to digitally synthesize the heck out of your tonal quality.I won't say look away, just look around.

Strange issues with mine, i would avoid 6/18/2019 5:23:18 PM

Pros: -The Sonic studio software suite had lots of options for tweaking the audio the way you would want it but...(see cons section)
-Positional audio and upmixing of stereo audio was very good, i could track positions of players very easily in fortnite but...(see cons)

Cons: -out of the box, default driver settings, the audio sounds weird because the default settings are set to environment reverb with other options enabled that distort your audio making it sound less clean and tinny at times
-at times the audio would just cut out for several seconds and even worse, when it came back, the input audio from my consoles had the stereo channels reversed. the only way i could fix it was to have reset the default audio playback device in the driver suite or in windows.
-the card has no front panel audio connector headers
-the card does not offer the ability to output your audio stream through 2 different connectors at once despite having dedicated jacks for speakers and headphones, you can only ever output to one at a time and you have to switch the default output device manual to switch between them.
-the spdif connector only works in this same manner

Overall Review: I had a xonar DG that i've been using for years and i've enjoyed the audio quality and the headphone amp espeically since my consoles and PC are all hooked up to the same monitor with the PC handling the audio output for all. During that time i've used it, i've bumped into some driver issues leading to system crashes with that when doing major version updates for windows 10 so i decided to search for a more modern version of that type of card. I thought this would be an upgrade and initially i was pleased with it but then i encountered some truly deal breaking bugs and issues (see above) that uninstalling all drivers, disabling onboard hardware and reinstalling drivers didn't fix and the support knowledge base is barren so i elected to return it within days. I was going to review this on another retail site but it's listing is combined with reviews for the (definitely) superior Xonar DG which i went back to and i didn't want to dissuade anyone from picking up one of those. YMMV but i would avoid this card.

Junk 4/2/2018 2:21:27 PM

Pros: none

Cons: This product was defective. The sound would cut out at random. I downloaded the drivers right from asus and disabled the on board audio manually and nothing helped. The audio sounded no better than the realtek on my motherboard. Now I'm waiting for a marketplace return. I'll never buy another marketplace item.

Overall Review: Not recommended
