Very nice sound card from Asus Verified OwnerVerified Owner


Card installed easily and software included from Asus fine tunes it
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.

Experience: 2 weeks


works to make sound
doesn't auto detect headphones on front case outputs
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

Experience: 5 Days

Quite better than onboard sound at low price Verified OwnerVerified Owner


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

Experience: 1 Days

Cheap improvement to audio quality. Verified OwnerVerified Owner


+ Completely eliminated static sound for audio recording
+ Much more balanced sound output
- 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.
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.

Experience: 1 Years

Grewat for the price


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

Experience: 30 Days


works as should
none so far
i use it connect my 5.1 sound system
I would buy again if needed

Experience: 2 Months


Great Audio
Easy to use
This is a great sound card for a cheap price

Experience: 4 Months


- N/A
- Not PCI-E.. but that's my mistake
Accidentally bought this when I was looking for a PCI-E sound card - fortunately, a friend was looking for a PCI card...according to them, it's a great sound card.

Experience: 1 Weeks


Excellent software features, great sound quality - superior to the on-board realtec chip.
A good upgrade if your on-board chip chip is either not working or just sounds crappy.

Experience: 4 Months


~Fantastic Audio
~Surround Sound
~Easy to use and assemble
If you want a cheap reliable sound card. I would recommend getting this! Be sure the audio isn't 7.1 when it comes to gaming though.

Reviews from the Web

Below are reviews found on other web sites for this product submitted by customers.

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.
Posted by: BernardP @04/05/12
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.
Posted by: FirewireX @07/03/11
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."
Posted by: BigChowder @05/02/11
Comment: Bit tech review
Posted by: spraynpray @10/26/10
Comment: "Truly another standout audio board from Asus, as well as being worthy or that now all too familiar Xonar livery."
Posted by: dsjlee @10/19/10
Comment: "Xonar DG costs less than a new PC game, but adds a lot of long term enjoyment"
Posted by: dsjlee @10/19/10
Comment: "the ability of the Xonar DG to support up to 150 Ohm headphones is a boon because you can really use some very high-quality headphones indeed."
