The Xonar DG sound card combines Dolby Headphone 5.1 high definition surround sound with ASUS’ own GX2.5 gaming audio engine and an on-board headset amplifier. These result in accurate and deep audio that brings every nuance and sound across fully, making the new Xonar DG an ideal sound card for gamers who want to remain totally aware of their game environments.
ASUS designed GX2.5 to simulate EAX game effects and makes them available on Windows Vista/7 PCs. GX2.5 will automatically emulate the latest EAX technologies without additional software.
HIGH SIGNAL-TO-NOISE RATIO (SNR)
A high SNR rating means less unwanted noise. Therefore the audio is cleaner which translates to better sound quality. The Xonar DG achieves a 105 dB SNR rating for clear audio in games, movies, and music.
Dolby Headphone enables up to 7.1 channel surround sound from any set of headphones for an immersive experience.
