ASUS Xonar D1 7.1 soundcard


With the new Asus Xonar D1 7.1 PCI soundcard, users can enjoy the same rich gaming audio effects and extensive Dolby Home Theater features as the PCI express Xonar DX soundcard and free up PCI express slots for other uses at the same time. This iteration of the Xonar provides fine-tuned audio components that reach a clear 116dB SNR (Signal-to-Noise Ratio); while the built-in DS3D GX revives support for DirectSound HW multi-channel gaming audio and the latest EAX (Environment Audio Extension) in important games. The Asus Xonar D1 also comes equipped with the renowned DS3D GX 2.0, which revives EAX HD 5.0 DirectSound HW effects in games for both Windows XP and Vista. DS3D GX 2.0 automatically enables the latest EAX and DirectSound HW after installation, with no additional driver patches, game modifications, or OpenAL required.
Taipei, Taiwan, July 27, 2008 – Following the success of the award-winning PCI express Xonar DX soundcard, ASUS, producer of top-notch audio devices, has responded to audiophile requests for a PCI version with the same exceptional features and value. Today, with the release of the ASUS Xonar D1 PCI soundcard, users can enjoy the same rich gaming audio effects and extensive Dolby Home Theater features as the Xonar DX, and free up PCI express slots for other uses at the same time. This iteration of the Xonar provides fine-tuned audio components that reach a clear 116dB SNR (Signal-to-Noise Ratio); while the built-in DS3D GX revives support for DirectSound HW multi-channel gaming audio and the latest EAX (Environment Audio Extension) in PC games.
35 Times Cleaner Audio Quality over Most Motherboard Audio
Most onboard audio can only provide 80-86 dB SNR. Consequently, background noises are noticeable and can interfere with music and games. By adopting a CirrusLogics CS4398 audio DAC (120dB SNR & 117dB THD+N), noise levels on the Xonar D1 soundcard are only 1/35 (2.8%) of the noise levels when compared to motherboard audio. Additionally, the Xonar D1 also produces as little as 1/32 (-105dB) of the total harmonics distortion present in motherboard audio (-75dB).
Supports the Latest DS3D GX 2.0 for Gaming on Vista & XP
The Xonar D1 also comes equipped with the renowned DS3D GX 2.0, which revives EAX HD 5.0 DirectSound HW effects in games for both Windows XP and Vista. DS3D GX 2.0 automatically enables the latest EAX and DirectSound HW after installation, with no additional driver patches, game modifications, or OpenAL required; while extending MMOG EAX to online chat, allowing users to place their voice into the game's environment with ease. S/PDIF Header Easily Combines Audio and Video through a VGA Card's HDMI Output.

Re: ASUS Xonar D1 7.1 soundcard

Very nice i wud say... i was in need of a good sndcard for my headphone...and had only 2 MID END options..the ASus xonar dx and the creative x-fi xtreme gamer soundcard .

But xonar dx connects via pci express x1 slot, but the x1 slot on my mobo was too near to the x16 slot that it was impossible for the soundcard to be placed properly on the slot, so i had to opt for the Xtreme gamer soundcard which connects via PCI slot . So im sure after this release The demand for xonar DX is gonna be a loot loot more higher

This is an entry level audio card, of course superior to onboard audio chipset. This is not an audiophile card or pro card. Xonar series from Asus are meant for more serious audio enthusiast. The high-end cards are more targeted towards the audiophile. Asus to my knowledge doesnt make Professional cards.

The 7.1 is more targeted towards cinema/gamers, yes it can play 5.1.

You can contact our support team if you need any more information on the same.

We are not registered dealers as yet. Our product list is getting augmented everyday. We are in the midst of relocation too.

As we are not registered dealers here, it will not be appropriate to quote prices. We had some promotion on The Audio Megastore . You may get some good prices in there, as such we have finest prices in our retail website. Hope it helps.
