Rated 5 out of 5 by brianthesnail One of the best soundcards around
There are more soundcards than ever these days however asus seemed to have taken the lead in producing dedicated audio hardware and the Asus Xonar DGX is one of the best
granted its not the most expensive soundcard but it has everything any non audiophile would need and is especially aimed at gamers who use headphones
the Asus Xonar DGX has a intergrated headphone amp and within 5 minutes using this soundcard ( playing battlefield 3 ) the results were impressive
you can hear sounds coming from all around you ... even commands shouted by a seargent 100m away are audible and bullet richochets are clearly heard
i replaced a ageing soundblaster x-fi extreme pci-e which still works ok but isnt as good as the Asus Xonar DGX,and its been demoted to my spare gaming rig
one note : this is the pci-express x1 version allthough you can also get a pci 32bit version ( see below ) ... both versions ship with the same specifications
overall i was extremely happy with the Asus Xonar DGX pci-e and highly recommend it over any onboard sound device ...
buy it today if you after superior audio for your games
top proudct !

Rated 5 out of 5 by JoshHarris24 Amazing for the value!
I have used this card for 3 weeks now coupled with my Sennheiser 598's and I can confirm that for around £30 this card is well worth the money. The surround sound emulation is wonderful and the software has a variety of options. My only qualm is that the software can be a little bit awkward dealing with microphone input.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Alistair1312312 A worthwhile purchase
I bought the Asus Xonar DGX to replace the on-board sound of a Gigabyte H87M-HD3 motherboard. I can't tell the difference between the sound quality of the motherboard and dedicated sound card while listening through a Hi-Fi, although the Asus Xonar DGX can reach higher volumes, which was my main reason for buying it. Since I wasn't expecting much of an improvement from such a cheap card, i'm happy with my purchase.
Scan's delivery was very quick, as per usual.

Rated 5 out of 5 by HST125Scorton Works Perfect
Pros: Installed into gaming system and used the updated drivers from ASUS, no trouble installing them, restarted sent the panel up as. 7.1 and it works a dream
Cons; None at all

Rated 4 out of 5 by germjames Works well now (but be careful with motherboard compatibility)
When I first installed this card the computer refused to post. 5 minutes on google and I found I had to update the bios to get this to work with my motherboard.
Once it was working I find it to be a good deal better than the on board sound through some 50 quid creative 2.0 speakers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by dragonsword Worth it over my onboard audio.
Been using onboard audio since i started PC gaming, always been happy with onboard audio. Read about this sound card, thought it was good value. Decided to give it a try over onboard audio, worth every penny. Sounds far better than my onboard audio, didn't know know what I'd been missing.
