Product information: ROG Xonar Phoebus Solo 7.1 PCI-E Soundcard

Exclusive ROG Command technology for clean, seamless in-game communication

Gamers often face noisy conditions that drown out voices during online multiplayer gaming. This creates lack of clarity and confusion within squads, leading to lower win ratios. Exclusive ROG Command technology offers the world's first design to specifically bring noise cancellation to a gaming soundcard set, as designed by the Xonar team. Intelligent sound detection algorithms and array microphones (two on the dedicated control box) enable up to 50% ambient noise reduction, effectively turning loud locations such as LAN parties into something as quiet as a lab. The technology works equally well whether using an external microphone or the microphones embedded into the ROG Xonar Phoebus control box. Gamers benefit from being able to communicate and coordinate with team members clearly and with greater precision, adding to enjoyment and win ratios.

Finest components and design for superior sound

ROG Xonar Phoebus utilizes a stylish and effective EMI shield and ASUS exclusive Hyper Grounding technology to ensure reduced electromagnetic interference. Based on the experience of Xonar professionals, Hyper Grounding technology brings ASUS motherboard expertise to audio products with a multi-layer PCB that helps block noise from nearby components and the power supply to render more lifelike and extra clear sound. The PCM1796 digital-to-analog converter on ROG Xonar Phoebus delivers clear and crisp 118 dB SNR high fidelity audio. The new soundcard's SNR profile therefore outperforms competing gaming audio products by a factor of four, and onboard audio by an impressive 32 times. It excels in total harmonic distortion (THD) performance, with a miniscule 0.00039% of sound output experiencing distortion.

Power for headphone users

Since many gamers choose headphones to refrain from disturbing others while insisting on the best sound quality and privacy, ROG and Xonar teams integrated the top-flight TPA6120A2 headphone amplifier on ROG Xonar Phoebus, driving up to 600 ohm impedance for genuinely impactful headphone output.

The latest audio technologies

ROG Xonar Phoebus includes one-click activation of Dolby Home Theater V4, helping enhance audio through complete compatibility with new sound processing technologies. The latest standard offers greatly improved surround, with smart sound enhancement and a more user-friendly approach to high end audio. The exclusive ASUS GX 3.0 game audio engine has also been integrated, offering EAX compatibility to ensure boosted game sound, a wider range of simultaneous sound effects, and overall clearer sonic performance in every PC game.

Product crossover benefits consumers

ROG Xonar Phoebus presents the first soundcard set from ROG, the ASUS division entirely devoted to gaming as a lifestyle and branch of pioneering technology. This launch coincides with ROG's fifth anniversary, and delivers the results of cooperation between ROG gaming philosophy and innovative Xonar PC audio experts. As such, ROG Xonar Phoebus offers gamers enhanced sound custom-tailored to improving in-game experiences.

Perfect!

I got this as I had a Creative Zx and after testing out a Phoebus with the same headphones I have, I had to make the switch.
The difference in quality is astounding, I'm usually a Soundblaster man through and through but this completely changed my viewpoint.
Games, Movies and music sound so much more, Well, MORE.
As usual great service from OCUK :)

Awesome

Got this as onboard still can't cut it compared to a dedicated device, A crude way of putting the analogy would be prior to installing this games, music and movies sounded like I was listening through a half opened door, Put this in and wow, Everything sounds fantastic and opened up.
I've found myself re-visiting older games to see what they sound like, In short, Awesome.
And as usual, Great service from OCUK :)

Worth The Money! First Time Buyer For An

Its really worth the money if you have at least 5.1 speakers or above then its worth the money if you have 2.1 this is not for you. the reason I'm saying 2.1 isn't worth it is because with the sound card like this is that you wouldn't notice much of a difference with modern on-board graphics today, this card is built for more surround and putting volume on the back speakers with 5.1 and 7.1. As well with my 5.1 vs on-board i can hear everything around me and the louder your volume is, its a lot clearer vs on-board. As well as bass goes its more controlled and less thumpy but if that's what you prefer the sound card drivers allows you to have that control.

Drivers are good they have features and equalizer settings plus MIC settings and speaker settings.

Very good in general I can not come up with any faults accept the back it's a bit confusing inserting the right cables in but that's just my opinion if your experienced with sound cards this shouldn't be an issue. Just to let you know you can place in green yellow and black sound wire in if you are curious for 5.1 and so on for 7.1. This sound card as a note does need a 6 pin power connector so be aware and make sure your power supply supports it, I came with that issue but lucky i have 6 pin molex lying around plus this sound card comes with one as well. so again i say its a very good sound card and should purchase it if you are looking for surround quality plus just overall sound quality is brilliant you tend to hear more as well vs on-board as well.
