ASUS Xonar DG PCI Sound Card - Final Thoughts

With 177 different awards to date for the Xonar line-up, it's time to find out if that figure is going any higher today as we welcome the Xonar DG into our war room.

Final Thoughts

 

Over the last couple of years we have seen ASUS take an innocent sound card market and tear the rule books to shreds. They've left competition with their collective heads spinning atop shoulders, not knowing what to do next, and we only see this continuing into the future as ASUS assure that the Xonar is the only choice for serious enthusiasts, whether as a gamer, movie lover or music listener. Why look further than a Xonar?

 

The DG is a well built and easy to install and setup card that should be up and running in moments. Software support is typical Xonar, which is similar across the range of cards, but not updated quite as often as perhaps some users might enjoy. Clearly, though, software has always been an accompaniment to what the hardware itself can do, which is exactly as it should be, we feel.

 

Testing with games and movies sounded great with plenty of detail and clarity when the effects took over. Some special tuning has been done to make this board a real winner for lovers of action and it's here that we found it to be the most at home. In fact, we think this board should be called the 'Xonar FX'; a sound card for lovers of action!
