I got the Asus xonar dx today
Connected via optical digital to my amp.
I might be thinking of getting a DX or a D1
im trying to find one less that £50!
I think a UK member or someone might be selling a Creative Titanium Pro or the Fatality Pro model somewhere in the FS section, Might be worth a look.
The Xonar DX sounds a lot better then the creative, but older/newer EAX games might suffer compatibility issues with Xonars emulated EAX.
I use modded/custom drivers so I pretty much have all the bugs ironed out. but my old EAX games (like guildwars) used to crash like a motherfucker when i enabled EAX in game.
Its always good to have the hacked version of Creative Alchemy around as that really helps some games when Xonars emulation fails.
On the plus side, not many games use EAX anymore. but you might be able to get the Titanium card for around the same price or less. XFi cards are still bad ass.
Maybe i should have made it more clear, i wasn't been literal
What driver for the dx are you using?, i will have a try of it.
It's in my Sig
I'm using the Unified ones too. The official ones don't even install for me
Any install instructions? or just uninstall and delete official ones and install from scratch?
Uninstall the old/official ones, run the latest version of driver sweeper and select the 'asus -sound' option. click ok. restart and just install the ones downloaded from brainbit. those drivers should work no matter which Xonar soundcard you have.
afaik there are some teething issues with the new driver pack installing on a 64bit O/S - driver signing and whatnot but there are instructions on how to get around that located on their website. If not then the previous driver pack which is what im running now still works great for me and i havent had any problems with any game since I started using brainbit drivers.
Didnt have to do anything aside from reboot after uninstall official Asus drivers, F8 disable signed driver thingy, install modded drivers and reboot as normal, works fine, though have only tested with the start up sound lol phones will be coming out in a bit
well thats just me - whenever i need to do a new driver install, I ALWAYS run driversweeper
Ah, I was referring more to the unsigned driver method as opposed to the driver sweeper part, but yea I didn't run it couldn't be bothered tbh hope it don't bite me in the ass. TBH I generally only run driver sweeper if I have a specific driver issue I am trying to fix, touch wood Win7 seems to handle driver updates incredibly well compared to previous versions and the "delete all driver software" option helps too. I also really don't update drivers a lot as I typically reinstall Windows every other month for one reason or another (sometimes my own fault being a tinkerer) so always have the latest drivers installed.
too many ASUS users!!!
I need to buy one really soon
I wouldnt, the Audigy 2 ZS still an amazing card. I still have one, but my dads using it in his rig.
Happy with my Elite pro TBH..... Merry Xmas all!
im getting some popping with it. It is on the way out...
Mines been going strong for over 10years. I think i bought it in 2000, - I can barely remember that far back but it was definitely the time i was started college because that was the time i really started putting my own rig together,
I remember i bought one from C.E.X. first, but it was a dead card. they offered to swap it for another they had instock but i just demanded a refund. After that I went and bought it brand new and its been working great for me all through to i think it musta been 2005 or 2006 when I got myself an XFi Xtreme Music.
Have you tried using the D.K drivers with it??
Merry Christmas peeps!

+ we make the good bacon, who dont like bacon, its bo$$
Merry christmas guys, HF
Merry Christmas guys
I've come to the conclusion that with bacon it's how it's cooked that makes the most difference, good cooking can make even the worst Bacon taste excellent
Hope everyone has had a great day, Merry Xmas UK TPUers
Do any of you guys know much about surround sound?
