The road to high-quality audio can take one of two paths: the first being a set of expensive speakers paired to a power-guzzling amplifier, costing upwards of $1,500. This path is littered with the remains of sleep-deprived relationships and angry...80

Asus' Xonar line continues its impressive lineup with the Xonar DG, proving to be an exceptional value at $30. It does a good job providing richer, fuller sound over speakers, but the built-in headphone amp is where this card really excels. With...-

Qua gameprestaties doet deze kaart ook niet onder voor de rest, geen van de kaarten levert immers significant hogere frame rates op. Voor deze prijs krijg je ook een versterker voor je koptelefoon tot 64 Ohm. Dat ligt wat lager dan bij de duurdere...-
