My System Specs

Question ASUS Xonar Essence STX

So Iíve been looking around at high-end sound cards for my computer and this seemed to be the best out there.


My Intend uses are: Music production, gaming and listening to music.


Somewhere I heard that the ST had slightly better audio quality but really considering future compatibility with newer hardware is more important.


I wanted to get the STX instead of the ST because it uses PCI and the STX uses PCI-E.


So if I upgrade my computer I do not want to be stuck with something I cannot use on a newer Motherboard since PCI is almost completely phased out on high-end hardware.


If you have this sound card I would like to know these four things.


How is the sound quality?


What are your personal thoughts about the product? Pros & Cons.


What kind of applications do you use it for?

Should I buy one?




Thank you for your time.
