High quality 7.1 channel sound card designed for PCI interface. The card excels with a very nice price, and boasts a high signal-to-noise ratio of 107dB SNR, which is equivalent to 12 times more pure reproduction than most motherboard-based sound solutions offer.The card removes 91% of background noise, so players with the Xonar DS card can even hear the slightest detail in the game. Thanks to this, they have a great advantage in games because they can find enemies for a long distance. Removing noise increases the enjoyment of watching movies and listening to music, as users, thanks to the faithful reproduction of the Xonar DS, will also hear sounds that were previously hidden in the noise.

Computer game gamers will delight that the card supports the GX 2.5 engine for surround sound in games. This sound engine lets you enjoy the latest EAX technology, DirectSound effects and full surround sound in Windows Vista without any additional software. The card also supports VocalFX technology that allows users to put voices into realistic game scenes, include surround sounds in on-line chat and change the height of your voice and hide your true identity (Magic Voice). The card comes with a front panel containing a jack with a jack detection feature that automatically switches the signals from the rear panel to the front panel whenever the headphones are plugged into the front panel output. The S / PDIF output combines with the less-used rear analogue surround audio output connector and the optical digital output adapter is also included. The Xonar DS supports playback at 192 kHz at 24 bits.

Lets you listen from the speaker system 4, 5.1 or even 7.1 as well as simulating 3D sound while listening to headphones. Due to its low profile it does not take up much space.

Although vlastnim card in versions DSX and I must say that the sound is very pleasant beautifully detailed. I got a par and backrest / impressed me LM4562 and OPA 2134 / and though some say it with this card is not worth verte he has but also on factory-installed backrest / JRC 5532 / audio is in stereo, and especially nice card umi asio 2 and in conjunction with Foobar without error;) ...... just add that it is clear from the effect of operational amplifier is of course not so big as to be at the Xonar Essence etc;)
high quality stereo listening exchanger backrest price they are also far better quality cards, but at this price really is nothing to criticize
