Very nice sound card from Asus Verified OwnerVerified Owner

Pros

Card installed easily and software included from Asus fine tunes it
Cons
None
Summary
The onboard sound on my motherboard decided to quit so I purchased this Asus card in hopes it would step up the onboard experience. The PCI card installed easily and the software that came with it is great. I had to download the latest version update for Windows 10 but it works great. The sound card outputs very nicely to my 5.1 set up in the office and the software controls it nicely as needed.

Would definitely recommend if you are looking to step up from onboard sound on your PC.

Pros

works to make sound
Cons
doesn't auto detect headphones on front case outputs
Summary
this solved my issues with my onboard sound not working after I surged my mobo. the one thing is that you have to manually change to the front inputs and you can only do this in the Asus software as far as I've found so that's another unecessary program added to my startup

Quite better than onboard sound at low price Verified OwnerVerified Owner

Pros

Bought refurbished, works like a charm for now.
A lot better than onboard sound.
Onboard amplifier for high-end headphones.
Cons
Drivers are more than ordinary.
Summary
Would buy again, can't imagine how better my speaker system sounds when playing music

Cheap improvement to audio quality. Verified OwnerVerified Owner

Pros

+ Completely eliminated static sound for audio recording
+ Much more balanced sound output
Cons
- Really gross software interface, and for some reason the Xonar software files aren't digitally signed by Asus so you have to give the software permission to run since Windows sees it as a potentially harmful file.
Summary
Great little upgrade to the audio quality of the system. I'm not making use of the virtual surround sound or anything, I really don't have any interest in it. Primary reason for purchasing this is my on-board audio had issues with static on the microphone and a buzzing sound (in-ear) when my video card ramped up.

As it turns out the overall sound quality is quite a bit better! I'm using a Kingston HyperX Cloud headset, and I always had issues with some frequencies and whatnot seeming too quiet. It's a lot easier to pick out all the sounds now when I'm simultaneously gaming, listening to music, and talking with my friends.

When I first installed it, I was only receiving audio through my left headphone. Tried uninstalling and reinstalling a number of times, tried disabling motherboard audio through BIOS... turned out I just didn't plug in the audio cord enough - the last little bit to snap it in is very snug, okay?!

Overall I'm happy with the purchase. Good $45 solution to drastically improve microphone recording / streaming quality - excellent for content creation. And the music and games sounding a bit better is nice too, but I'm not an audiophile so it's not a huge difference to me.

A nice cheap soundcard, not the best you can have, but considering how cheap it is, the quality to price is worthwhile

Comment: Don't expect the same level of quality as the Essence STX or Xense, but the Xonar DG is without a doubt a great card for those on a budget.

Comment: For around the price of lunch, you can improve the audio in your system and add a discrete headphone amp. Pretty much an impulse buy with great benefits at the recent prices this thing is listed at.

Comment: "Compared to the onboard Realtek ALC889, the only situation where there is a noticeable difference is when listening to music while the Dolby Headphones technology is enabled."
