  • Shipping charges: Excluded. At actuals.
  • Manufacturer page URL: Asus Xonar Essence STX
  • Description: The sound card is in perfect working condition. My PC is well ventilated and cleaned properly. Listened to plenty of FLACS and HQ mp3s with a Beyerdynamic DT990 Pro 250ohm headphones (open back). While I'm no audiophile the difference between the audio from this sound card vs the onboard one was night and day. Especially Battlefield 4 with 'Hi-Fi' sound option or 7.1 sound option both were stellar gaming audio experience even without choosing the 'Dolby Headphone' option for surround sound. PC usage is usual - general browsing/music/videos/games (mostly CSGO, TF2, Battlefield 3/4 with Asus GTX 670 graphics card). Never had any problem with the stock Asus drivers. Though some people prefer the unixonar drivers I have never installed them.
