Got a ASUS Xonar DX Soundcard


I never had my hands on any sound cards. I do hear some music but it doesn’t mean that I am an audiophile as such.

I had read somewhere in the forums that on-board is about the same as your onboard graphic support with no great performance while Sound card is a beast like the graphic card.

So finally made up my mind to get one for myself . I would like to thank my friend Greeny who liked this card so much that I decided to get one for my PC.

So finally I got one after long wait of 3 weeks. Perhaps I was the first person in India to get this card from ASUS with ASUS India warranty etc.
I was very excited when I got it.

I haven’t used the card to it to its limits. I tried many things with the card. Even the smallest change in settings was audible. I played all Hindi songs on first day. 2nd day was rock. Played all L.P n Metallica songs making my neighbors go deaf!!. Each and every word was clear n soothing to hears.

The quality of sound was not much affected at such volume which was quite amazing! Now I am calling all my friends at my home to show this devil.

Indeed a great card at this price tag I will say.

you are not the first to purchase. My room-mate purchased it long time ago from a shop in hyd. We had to convince asus guys and the asus's dealer in hyd to get it. They took made us wait for 4 months for official launch in Hyd. It had awesome quality but it has so many bugs mainly due to PCI-E to PCI bridge and crap drivers. We were so pissed off with it that we returned and got our money back. Rashi peripherals is selling asus xonar. But they are also pissed with xonar DX due to its incompatibility with large number of motherboards and its drivers. I called cyberstar india and creative singapore and coninced them to launch xfi titanium in hyd by dec 1st week. Waiting for titanium. BTW we got DX for 4700 but then the dollar was 42. I spent rs40 only on phone calls.
