ASUS Xonar Essence ST 7.1 Channel Sound Card


ASUS have broken the boundaries with the newest sound card on the market, the Xonar Essence ST. This PCI card is the world's first audio card to incorporate precision clock tuning to minimize audio jitter, bringing the user a clearer, crisper listening experience. The Xonar Essence ST card can also be upgraded to 7.1 channel output with the use of the Xonar H6 multi-channel extension board, which will be sold separately in the near future.

    The price was the cheapest on the web, and it came the very next day. That was surprising given that I only paid the standard shipping fee.
