ASUS Xonar Phoebus 7.1 Gaming Soundcard Review @ HardwareHeaven
Posted By: Dennis - Source: Email
Discrete sound cards have fallen out of popularity lately, so much in fact that it is next to impossable to find one to replace the onboard crap most motherboard vendors give us. That's not to say "all" boards come with a crap sound processor, I can name a few, but rather the boards the majority of you buy who opt against affording something good.
Lucky for us Asus still makes a good sound board complete with 7.1 channel audio.
Aimed very much at providing a fantastic gaming experience whether it be 2.0 via the headphone amp or 7.1 through the multi-channel outputs the Xonar Phoebus is, at least on paper, the latest in a line of impressive audio products from ASUS. Today we will be taking a look at the card in detail to find out if it can live up to some very high expectations.
I did get a chance to listen to one of these at Computex and the overall quality is amazing. They also come with a pretty good amplifier which is important when you want to hear bass while running Corsair headsets.
