All time best on-board upgrade
Posted by: Yano from: Cincinnati, OH on
Do not hesitate to upgrade your on-board audio to this ASUS Xonar DG. Even with a $300+ mother boards, you are still stuck with Realtek or Cirrus Logic audio chipsets which can not outdo a good quality ASUS Xonar or Creative X-Fi card.
If you have a good 2.1 channel system or just use headphones, this card will provide near-audiophile quality sound clarity and details. If you are considering the optical 5.1 out, go for a better card. The SPDIF out controls from the software interface can sometimes be non-responsive and will provide you with no digital output.
For $30, this is the most affordable quality audio upgrade you can purchase. Creative Labs have not been doing too well in recent years and their low end cards generate average sound crispness and they are leaned towards gaming audio development which makes their product lines such as the new Recon3D unsuitable for music listeners.

PCI express sound card

Card works well with Windows 7 and 10, has optical jack.
Setup is difficult, you need to cancel the widows drivers or remove them.

The card specifies PCI compatible, but doesn't state the exact PCI required. My computer has a PCI Express x16 slot and the card would not fit. Had to return for credit.

I had to replace my old sound card on my computer. The gentleman at geek squad recommend this one for my computer, because my computer was an older model. They installed it for me and as soon as I got it home I noticed a big difference. It sounded more clearer and it made my base speaker work better. I have had no problem with it and have been very satisfied with it's performance.
