Asus Xonar D2 Sound Card

Filed under: Audio Recording,Home Recording — pelopor @ 1:05 pm

Last sighted a couple of months ago at Computex, the Xonar D2 is Asus’ brazen attempt to take Creative head-on. Asus isn’t pussy-footing around with the Xonar either, this is intended to be a serious contender and as such it’s a card brimming with features and promising a high quality audio experience. Can it deliver?
5096-img7110s.jpg

First impressions are excellent, it’s an impressively heavy card with a large metal shield covering most of the card, to help protect from electronic interference. There’s a range of audio cables including three stereo mini-jack to twin phono for connecting the analogue outs from the card to an amp as well as an optical cable with adapters (as the card combines S/PDIF with optical audio outs). I was pleasantly surprised to find a separate MIDI bracket and MIDI cables. Despite USB now taking over from MIDI interfaces, it’s always gratifying to have it, although you will need to use up a whole rear bracket just for this one connection.

Where some of the higher-end Creative cards come with the functional (and perfectly acceptable) Cubase SE, Asus has provided a generous package that includes ‘lite’ editions of Ableton 6, Sonar and Project 5 together with Cyberlink Power DVD 7. There’s no sample editing program in there, but there are plenty of free ones on the web, such as Audacity. Unfortunately, this review model didn’t include the software so I can’t say how these cut-down versions compare to the full commercial releases.
5096-img7114s.jpg

As is common with even the budget cards now, there’s a wide range of surround options available including up to 7.1 analogue out, Dolby Digital Live, Dolby Pro Logic IIx (for upmixing stereo or even 5.1 to up to seven surround channels), Dolby Headphone, Dolby Virtual Speaker (pseudo-surround from stereo speakers), DTS Connect, DTS Neo:PC and DTS Interactive. The range of surround options and the inclusion of Dolby Digital Live is one area where this card differentiates itself from the X-Fi.

The card also offers ASIO support. Whilst once restricted to cards designed for the audio production market, ASIO is now much more widespread. It’s a low-latency driver intended to provide a high degree of responsiveness for music making applications, where timing is crucial (it’s no good playing a note on a keyboard only to hear it two seconds later).www.trustedreviews.com

Asus Xonar D2

Filed under: Audio Recording,Home Recording — pelopor @ 2:59 pm

Some time ago, ASUS announced their plans to enter the sound card market, with models targeting primarily gamers. This information was received with a solid amount of scepticism, as we could seldom see anyone who thought that a fresh sound card could beat Creative X-Fi models. However, Creative caused quite a deal of controversy recently with some of its decisions (we refer here primarily to Vista drivers & software, which you have to pay the postage for, should you want to have them on a CD; the download is free, naturally) and the displeased customers have set a few forums on fire. This was a crucial moment to enter the market, and ASUS used it to the maximum. Of course, the product itself has to be up to par, and read on to see whether it is.

Xonar was built with truly the best elements. The core of the card is ASUS’ AV200 High Definition sound processor with 192 KHz/24-bit capabilities. There are also four 24-bit BurrBrown PWM1976 DAC converters for the digital input, with a declared Signal-to-Noise ratio of 123 dB, one Cirrus Logic CS5381 DAC for the analog input, declared to 120 dB, six NEC relays and ten Texas Instruments operational amplifiers. Aside from that, the card itself is top-quality, all of the electrolytes are plated, and the black PCB also contributes to the looks. Xonar is for the major part covered with an aluminium body which protects the card from any external interference. The only “naked” surface on the card proudly carries the Dolby Digital and DTS logos.

Xonar was clearly made for gamers. The main thing that leads to that conclusion are the LEDs spread all over the card. Six of these are located inside the analog inputs, each being differently coloured to make connecting easier in dark conditions. This is very useful for anyone who has ever had the need to crawl behind the case with a flashlight in order to simply connect something to the sound card. Beside these ones, there is also an orange “circle” on the EMI shield, lit by two large LEDs located beneath it.
image002m.jpg

Features

As far as support is concerned, Dolby’s technologies certainly aren’t missing. Dolby Headphone, Virtual Speaker, Pro Logic Iix and Digital Live are all present. And so is DTS Connect, which comprises DTS Interactive Encoder and DTS NEO: PC. Gamers will appreciate EAX 2.0 and Aureal3D 1.0 support the most, and Xonar sports ASIO 2.0, DirectSound and OpenAL compatibility as well. Many consider the lack of a newer EAX version a flaw, but as Creative has exclusive rights to EAX version 3.0 and higher, this cannot be considered the manufacturer’s mistake.

To say that the box content is rich would be a tremendous understatement. ASUS is definitely ahead of its competition. Beside the card, we found no less than four 3.5 mm-RCA cables, a Sony optical S/PDIF cable and a couple of adapters for it. Software-wise, the buyer gets the driver disc, full versions of PowerDVD 7.0, CakeWalk Production Plus, and Abletion Live 6 Lite, which really speaks for itself. From this particular aspect, Xonar is really a complete product, no doubts about that.

Asus Xonar D2, Kartu Suara Berkualitas dari ASUS

Filed under: Audio Recording,Home Recording — pelopor @ 12:46 pm

Asus identik sebagai produsen motherboard, namun belakangan, mereka makin memperbanyak lini produknya. Contohnya XOnar, produk kartu suara (sound card) kelas atas. Ada dua varian yang disiapkan. D2X yang berinterface PCI Express x1 dan D2 yang PCI biasa. Keduanya memiliki bentuk dan spesifikasi sama, hanya berbeda di interfacenya.

Adapun yang kami uji kali ini adalah D2. Yang tampak mewah dengan konektor bernuansa gold plated. Bagian depannya dilindungi penutup berbahan aluminium berwarna hitam yang berfungsi untuk mereduksi tingkat interferensi gelombang elektromagnetik (EMI) dari perangkat-perangkat di dalam casing. Ini diklaim dapat meningkatkan Sound-to-Noise Sonar antara 4 sampai 6 db.

Xonar D2 mendukung tata suara 7.1. Tetapi dukungan Dolby Digital Live, Dolby Pro Logic Iix, Dolby Headphone, Dolby Virtual Speaker, DTS Connect, DTS Neo: PC, dan DTS Interaktive membuat soundcard ini sangat spesial.

Asus menyediakan aplikasi Portable Music Processor utility yang memungkinkan penggunaannya melakukan backup terhadap musik digitalnya yang terproteksi ke format MP3 atau WMA secara legal. Tersedia pula utility audio editing Ableton Live Lite, Cakewalk Production Plus Pack, serta PowerDVD 7.0 serta RightMark Audio Analyzer 5.6.

Softwarecable audiomidi
On the software side, ASUS includes a CD of “Lite” software titles such as Ableton Live, Sonar LE, Dimension LE, and Project 5 LE. These titles give the end-user powerful tools for a wide range of audio editing, conversion and mastering functions. Ableton Live Lite and Sonar LE offer a complete package for music creation, production and playback while Dimension LE and Project5 LE deliver software synthesizer capabilities for complete composing and production of custom audio. For more details, we suggest visiting the Cakewalk website for a complete breakdown on each program’s functionality. We were pleased to see a fully functional and current copy of PowerDVD 7 included in the package and it was not of the scaled down 2-Ch flavor that has been appearing in many OEM bundles lately. This version is the 5.1 edition that can be upgraded to full Dolby Digital EX 7.1 Surround Capability.

Rounding out the bundle is a Dolby Headphone Dolby Virtual Speaker Demo DVD and a Drivers CD which includes Windows XP and Vista drivers, Electronic User’s Manual, Portable Music Processor and RightMark Audio Analyzer 5.6.

The ASUS Xonar D2 Ultra Fidelity 7.1 PCI Sound Card itself is built around a 24-bit ASUS AV200 High-Definition Sound Processor that boasts a SNR (Signal-to-Noise Ratio) of 118dB, which is the best SNR we could find, scouring the market for comparable solutions. The card supports 44.1, 48, 96 and 192KHz sampling with floating point filters claiming near lossless conversion. The card is also equipped with four Burr-Brown PCM1796 24-bit D-A Converters for digital sources while a single Cirrus-Logic CS5381 24-bit A-D Converter handles analog signal. The card is encased with an EMI (Electronic Magnetic Interference) shield to ensure surrounding components do not have a negative effect on audio quality. For added aesthetics, ASUS added illumination to the shield while the rear port collection is also illuminated, making finding the right port a bit easier to locate.

ASUS Xonar D2 Ultra Fidelity 7.1 Sound Card

Filed under: Audio Recording,Home Recording — pelopor @ 9:52 am

Claiming to be the best at anything is bold. From professional athletes to product manufacturers, stating you or your product is the best out there opens things up for closer scrutiny. Being the best at what you do, or what you make, means near flawless execution. Regardless of the context, one thing is certain, if you claim you are the best at what you do, you better be prepared to back those statements up. This is the position ASUS has put themselves in, stating that their latest product is the best of its kind, period.

In this HotHardware showcase we’re going to take a look at a new sound card from ASUS called the Xonar D2 Ultra Fidelity 7.1 PCI Surround card. Although this is the first sound card ASUS has delivered to market, they’ve come right out stating they feel this is the best sound card currently available. That’s a confident statement, especially considering this is their first sound card release, not to mention the current state of integrated solutions that can rival the performance of some of the best add-in cards out there from the likes of Creative and others. With that said, we’re going to take a complete look at the Xonar D2 Ultra Fidelity 7.1 PCI Surround Card to see if it really is the best of its kind or if ASUS’ claims falls short.
