ASUS debuts sub-$50 Xonar DG 5.1 sound card

Posted on Monday, August 23 2010 @ 21:27:31 CEST by

ASUS rolls out the Xonar DG 5.1, a new basic sound card for gamers on a small budget. The low-profile card features the C-Media CMI8786 Oxygen HD chipset, it offers 5.1 channel sound and supports HD (24-bit/96kHz) output with HDCP compliance. Pricing in the UK is under £30, so pricing in the US is expected to be well under $50.
part from the four 3.5 mm jacks for 5.1 channel output plus one 2-channel analog input, there's one TOSLINK-type optical SPDIF output. The card gives out standard HDA front-panel connections, along with internal analog and SPDIF inputs.

Despite its lean feature set, the card features an on board headphone amplifier circuit that lets you tune impedance to suit your headset, it lets you select between VOIP, Gaming, and "Exciter" modes. The CMI8786 chipset is aided by a Cirrus-Logic made DAC that has a signal-noise ratio of 105 dBA, with a frequency response 10 Hz to 48 kHz, supporting 24-bit sample resolution.
