Nice card, but hard to set up

When you do get this card working, it's great. Unfortunately there are driver or configuration issues with all the platforms I'm using it on; it certainly wasn't "plug and play". In case other people run into the same problems I did (I was after stereo analog output), this is what fixed it for me:

Windows 8.1: get the driver from the Asus Website, and install it in safe mode

Windows 10 Tech Preview: get the Windows 8 (*not* the Windows 8.1) driver from the Asus Website

Debian Linux: this was a toughie. Run alsamixer as a normal user; use F6 to select the Xonar card; use the right-arrow keys until "Analog Out" is highlighted; then use the up/down keys to select between "Multichannel", "Stereo headphones" (this is the socket on the card itself) or "Stereo headphones FP" (the connector for front panel audio).

Amazing

Needed to upgrade from on board sound as mine was failing.At first I had a little trouble with the card working as I didn't disable onboard sound in my bios. Soon as I did that and got the driver installed with the Xonar audio center I must say I am in love with this card.Playing music is awesome but gaming is fantastic.Even with my not so good headphones the surround sound and effects are amazing.Totally worth the buy and as usual fast delivery from OC :D. Thanks again.

Not bad

Great card if you don't care about decoded digital. Great for headphones. Not so good if your trying to get a digital source for your 5.1 desktop spearkers.

Shocked

Upgraded my speakers recently and was pretty happy with the upgrade.

Then started to read into sound cards more, did not want to spend alot so this was a real deal.

Was real shocked on how amazing this has been. Been using onboard for years and never really thought much into how much better a sound card would be.

Hear so much more in music and in games now. Hear people on skype better as well. Really surprised.

Great product

Great kit. Easy install and nice performance. Bought this to up the sound quality of my headphones (Steelseries Siberia) and was not dissapointed.
Worth the price over onboard sound.

Excellent

Swapped out 5 year old XFI Xtreme Gamer for this after i read some reviews and all i can say is wow much better than my old one BF3 sounds completely better sound positioning is superior buy it you need it.

pretty darn good

This is the first soundcard i have ever brough, and I must admit, I'm not dissapointed.
I mainly use it for games and I am hearing things i never knew where there before. And i'm using a set of cretive Fata1ty 800 headphones (so not the best).

I also listen to music and that sounds great too.
When i was first setting up the card, I turned everything up to max and let me say this, there is plenty of volum there! I think my ears are still ringing from it!

What i can say

Received today and what a transformation form on board sound card, however requires some tweaking for the best results, worth every penny.
