is that the sub which is an additional $400 >.<

( do you really need a sub with these anyway? I heard if in a small room the range of bass is exceptional; so many just for larger more open area)

What would have been funny if there was a button / link to "listen / compare" the audio quality online.

Like watching those HIDEF TV commercials on my old tube tv with dial knobs .

No the STX is the flagship xonar card... Meant for audiophiles... And no I don't have the sub and will not get it. It's simply not necessary IMO
