  • The Asus Xonar DGX 5.1-Channel PCIe Sound Card brings out the best in your gaming rig audio, offering gorgeous surround sound and multiple amp gain modes.

    Get the audio edge and dominate the competition

    This Asus Xonar sound card has been optimised to provide immersive sound for more intense gaming action. Its precision design combines Dolby Headphone 5.1 high-definition surround sound with an Asus-exclusive GX 2.5 gaming audio engine and on-board headphone amplifier.

    You'll experience accurate, rich audio that gets every sonic detail to you in crystal clear definition. This will really open up your perception of the playing environment, allowing you to hear adversaries before they know you're there and swiftly gain the upper hand.

    Built-in headphone amp for versatility

    Incorporating its own headphone amplifier, the Asus Xonar DGX Sound Card offers three gain settings to use across different situations. Voice, pro-gaming and exciter modes take care of different aspects of your play for a more satisfying experience.

    VOIP mode is assigned to chat and headsets, giving you clear voice reception. With Pro-gaming mode you'll enjoy additional high-frequency sound dynamics that work to enhance your perception of audio positioning. Exciter mode delivers solid, deep bass that fills the sound field and allows you to become more immersed in your gameplay.

    Stay more aware of your environment with sound positioning, particularly advantageous when you're playing first-person shooters.

    Incredible surround sound technology

    The Asus Xonar DGX 5.1-Channel Sound Card takes your stereo headphones up a level with Dolby Headphone technology, which creates a brilliant 5.1 surround sound experience.

    3D audio effects attain incredible realism thanks to the GX2.5 gaming audio engine, which allows up to 128 different sound effects to work simultaneously. It's also completely compatible with the latest version of EAX.

    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.

    Install the Asus Xonar DGX 5.1-Channel PCIe Sound Card and hear your games expand.
