My System Specs

I really enjoyed that review. It was good to see very thorough testing with a lot of different types of music represented. I would have liked to see more different hardware brands represented though. Only Asus and Sennheiser products mentioned the whole way through.

Overall, good job. Thanks a lot.

There is the Xonar Essence ST and STX (ST being PCI and STX being PCI-E x1) which is the card used in the comparison graphs. As the review mentions, it does lack native 7.1 support without an extra add on card, but it offers on par if not slightly better performance for 2 channel audio. I currently use a STX with my Sennheiser HD555's and I have been very impressed.
