    ASUS DG reviews

    Xonar DG Sound Card is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 29.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Front panel headphones connector. Installation: The card is pretty simple to install - just make sure to download the most updated driver from the ASUS support site - drivers provided in the box didn't work for me. Pros: Most importantly it has a connector for the front pannel headphones (supports both AC97 and HD Audio). The headphone amp can easily drive professional headhones - it has 3 headphone modes: 1) less than 32ohms; 2)32-64ohms; 3) more than 64ohms. Sound is pretty good if you don't turn on any of the DSP/Effects/Equalizer nonsence. Cons: I don't like switching from the Headphones to Speakers through the ASUS app.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from WAYYY Better than Realtek Onboard I was scared at first because I thought $ for a sound card? This will be bad. I was really interested in the Dolby Headphone technology, and I thought that it won't be that surround.Now that I got it, I actually changed my mind. Yes, a true 5.1 speaker set-up will still be better, but WOWW. Pairing it up with my Turtle Beach X12, these sounded GREAT.For the BEST Sound Quality, install it as far from your Graphics Card. EMI from the graphics card causes buzzing/white noise that is ONLY noticeable when you mute a graphics heavy game. Other than that, IT'S GREAT! BUY IT IF YOU ARE STILL USING ONBOARD AND A PAIR OF HEADPHONES.It's really good...Don't know how to summarize it better. I've had a true 5.1 usb headset before, and I could say this plus my X12 is better.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Xonar DG Sound Card by Asus Review The mother board sound went out on my computer so I needed a sound card. The Xonar DG isa great product. It seems to work well, installation was just OK. For some reason installation failed the first time. Had to uninstall and try again. It worked the second time. The Analog output has several choices and it kept defaulting to FP headphones which was frustrating since I have 2 speakers. It was not obvious at all how to get the Xonar DG to default to 2 speakers but alas, now it does and I have no clue as to why but glad that it is. Over all nice board and control panels and options

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good low end card. I needed something a notch up from onboard quality for speech recognition, so my concern is the mic input quality, which is perfect for my app. I could not get it to run on Linux with the ALSA driver. This is not ASUS's fault, since they make no Linux compatibility claim. Works perfectly on Windows 7. The driver software was somewhat confusing. I wound up letting Windows search the CD. In Sound>Recording, Aux and Stereo Mix show Currently Unavailable. I am able to record what I hear with Audacity, a major requirement for me. I probably would not pay the regular price for this piece. If you need to have a new card for testing your PC or connected equipment, and then be left with a decent card, this is the one--on sale.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works with Win7 64 Bit !!! I needed a sound card which works with Windows 7 64-Bit; this one does. I had a Turtle Beach Montego and it is not supported. I looked all around and read many reviews. I was surprised to read incompatibility issues between sound cards and Win7 64Bit. But, finally a review like this one explained that the ASUS Xonar DG does work with Win7 64 Bit and sounds great. It's true. It does. And, it is supported on ASUS website. And, the price at B&H cannot be beat! B&H Photo always comes through!-Note: The Xonar DG install did not go in on the first try. For whatever reason, it did not like the first PCI slot I put it in. I moved to another and voila! All's good.Asus M5A88- V EVO AM3+AMD FX-4100 Zambezi8GB G.Skill Ripjaws SeriesEVGA GeForce Gt 430WD 1TB Caviar Black 7200 RPM

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent value For those with headphones that would appreciate the little extra driving power, nothing can beat the value of this card.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Product, software necessary Installed in an older computer that has a fresh Windows 7 install, and the old audio hardware is not compatible with the new OS. Asus software is necessary for Windows 7 intallation; Windows 7 does not have a built-in driver. It appears that to mute or unmute, the software must be opened; there is no right-click solution as there is with hardware recognized by Windows.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from does the job ...and nicely too. With the rebate, it's virtually free. Was altogether skeptical reading user reviews that stated a clear and significant improvement in audio quality over the motherboard audio. Well, tis so. Wonderfully obvious. Cant say enough about B&H also. Fast shipping and got it here in one piece. Would certainly purchase from them again...
