      Product information
      The Asus Xonar DSX 7.1-Channel PCIe Sound Card delivers a 3D world of explosively realistic audio to your game play and home entertainment.

      Envelop yourself in audio

      A GX2.5 allows the Xonar DSX to deliver up to 128 different sound effects simultaneously to treat your ears to an immersive, real-feel sonic experience that will transport you to the heart of the action.

      It also supports the latest version of EAX and restores surround gaming in Windows 7 without requiring extra software.

      Games, movies and music get the hi-fi treatment

      The combination of DTS Neo: PC and DTS Interactive technologies allow DTS Connect to bring the most sought-after hi-fi surround sound to your computer. DTS Neo:PC converts any stereo signal into 7.1 channels, while DTS Interactive achieves 7.1 digital surround via S/PDIF output, giving you premium surround sound.

      This proprietary technology enables your computer to act as a powerful multimedia centre and gaming PC in one, giving you more satisfaction of use. What's more, with true 192KHz/24-bit file conversion, you'll enjoy the highest quality with no sample rate downgrade.

      Tune your own PC sound

      The Asus Xonar DSX 7.1-Channel Sound Card sports a design previously only seen on high-end audio equipment.

      Its swappable OPamp socket gives you the facility to tune and customise your computer audio without needing to solder any parts. Build your perfect listening experience without hassle and get the most out of your entertainment.

      Extra-sensory connection


      Once speakers or headphones are plugged in, the Intel® HDA-compatible front-panel header automatically switches output between the back and the front of the case. This means you won't need to bother with manually changing connection settings again – it's complete gaming convenience.

      Add that third dimension of sonic excellence to your computing and gaming with an Asus Xonar DSX 7.1-Channel PCIe Sound Card.
