Pros - ASUS Xonar Essence STX Sound Cons - Wish had more extension out of box, but thats what opamps are for. Wish I had something to compare to. Had an audigy 2 for years and thought extension was better in treble. But Audigy 2 does not have a headphone amp and cannot push the HD properly. Not even sure it can push the AKG Q The HD with the audigy 2 are fantastic since HD does not need a headphone amp. I am a pretend to be audiophile since I have a limited budget.

Xonar Essence STX Sound Cards ASUS USA

Althought I do have tons of headphones: I ripped all music to wav file using EAC. I feel at times I need a headphone tube amp to improve sound.


Replies 1. Click here to see comfortablejon's full review Pros - Makes good headphones even better, great sound quality, more than doubles my volume.

ASUS Xonar Essence STX - initial driver problems, installation tricky. A mate of mine bought a soundcard and reckons it made a big difference and convinced me to buy one. I read into reviews, and they said that this was a good card for headphones, and they are bang on. It always felt like there ASUS Xonar Essence STX something missing when i first listened to my MDRs, and i kinda felt ripped off after upgrading from MDR XBs but this card truly justifies the upgrade. I have a modern motherboard MSI GD65 8D and the audio quality increase this card gives over my mobo soundcard is staggering.

Max volume increase this card gives is just crazy.

HQ audio is completely flawless; no signs of clipping ASUS Xonar Essence STX at max volumes. First impressions were amazing, and it still continues to amaze me. However, the better the audio equipment you have, the more difference you will notice. Replies 0.
