ASUS’ Xonar lineup has received a new addition with the ROG Xonar Phoebus, a gamer-oriented sound card which includes a break out box controller for volume settings, Dolby® Home Theater V4 surround sound and a GX3.0 gaming audio engine.
In-game audio can make or break the gaming experience, and a high-quality sound card is one of the best investments a gamer can make. The ASUS ROG team worked with Xonar audio specialists to develop the ROG Xonar Phoebus gaming soundcard set that includes an internal soundcard and a break out control box. The internal PCI-E card is made from carefully selected components and perfectly shielded to block electronic interferences from other components housed within the computer case. It uses the CMI8788DH Oxygen Express from C-Media, making it a native PCI-E solution instead of using a bridge chip like previous designs. With a signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) of 118dB and a headphone amplifier that can drive 600 ohm audiophile-class headphones, the Phoebus gives a dynamic boost in sound clarity to ensure fully immersive in-game audio.
The Xonar Phoebus control box gives users complete control over volume settings right at their desk; while the latest ROG Command Technology integrates array microphones can effectively reduce up to 50% of environmental noise, helping gamers to command and direct team members with seamless communication. Dolby® Home Theater V4 surround sound and GX3.0 gaming audio engine have been specifically tuned to provide a true-to-life experience for those into racing, flight simulation or FPS games.
