Great value

This sound card is pretty good and is an improvement over my onboard sound on my Sabertooth 990FX motherboard. While the quality of sound has not been increased (that I can notice), in games the 'feel' of the sound has improved. Explosions are a lot more lively and I can hear other sounds that where not present, or noticeable, when using onboard audio, mostly when playing Battlefield 4.

Finally, the positional audio was much better allowing me to pin point the location of in game enemies much easier.

Amazing

I brought a new rig off of overclockers, and it had on board sound, but when playing games it felt it needed and bit more ummpf, so i had a look at sound cards and went with this Asus one, if anyone is looking for a really good card without breaking the bank, then this is the card for you it is brilliant!

Amazing Value.

Received this today, installation was very easy. I installed the latest drivers from the ASUS website and everything was up and running. At first everything sounded strange and distorted, it only took a little bit of messing with the settings and everything sounds amazing now.

Both music and gaming is much, much better thanks to this card. Highly recommended.

Awesome

My motherboard has on-board sound so although I didn't need a sound card I wanted one anyway for better quality.

WOW does the sound from this sound good, Studio quality a must for listening to music, gaming or audio editing.

Best sound card I have ever owned - worth every penny.

Excellent card

A perfect upgrade from onboard sound that matches and bests cards far more expensive.

The headphone amp drives my Grado SR80 headphones nicely and the sound is awesome.

After having tried dozens of them over the last 20 years - this is my soundcard of choice from here on out.

Good hardware, terrible drivers

Ordered these when they were on sale, delivered next day. thx oc!

Installed in my computer (win 7x64) and had the drivers on the cd not recognise there was a sound card even though it showed in the device manager.

Trying to install manually caused some blue screens, but moving to a different PCI slot seemed to fix that.

Tried all 3 of the drivers on the asus site and even the unofficial unified xonar drivers, eventually found that the PCI_DG_7_12_8_1792_Win7 ones installed and worked after numerous uninstall/reboot/reinstalls.

Then had issues with the front panel (antec 300 case) being detected, which somehow sorted itself out.

So after finally getting it working the sound is great - such a difference compared to onboard.

3 stars because of the hassle to get it working though. I'll think again about buying asus after the terrible drivers and support

excellent card

Fantastic card for the money. At this price its well worth a look, especially if you primarily use headphones.
Excellent sound quality. Great 3D effects. Headphone amplifier works really well.
I've used X-fi cards before, and this is easily as good (arguably better sound quality), and for less money too.

Great stuff.

Great card

If you primarily use headphones (or even if you don't), this is an excellent card with a tiny price tag!

I had an X-Fi extreme gamer card in my old rig and I thought it was pretty good.
Recently, I decided to build a new pc and figured I'd give this a go. I liked the look of the built in headphone amplifier, and since I only use headphones (gaming/ventrilo etc), it looked perfect, plus it's a fraction of the price too! Brilliant!

Sound is crisp, clear and punchy, and when used with decent a headset you can crank up the headphone specific settings and it really starts to impress. Gaming is great, and music playback is easily better than the X-Fi.

In my opinion, this card is easily a match for more expensive X-Fi hardware. If you've got a decent headset that can handle the higher amplifier settings, you won't be disappointed.
Dunno what it's like with a 5.1 setup, but I can't see it being terrible.

TLDR version: Only 25 quid and it's awesome, especially if you use a headset.
