The Essence One is excellent for both newbie and seasoned audiophiles alike, as it is relatively inexpensive, customizable and does not take up too much space on your desk. You can even place it standing up as it comes with a stand that allows you to do ...

The noise issues on the Xonar Essence troubled us at first, but once we'd worked out the source of interference all was well. Do we expect this on audio equipment? No, not really. The issue is that Asus has gone for a smallish device, which is...

Convention dictates that the hi-fi market is in decline and this - in a numbers game at least - is true. Behind this rather depressing factoid are some interesting other elements to consider though. The first is that exactly what constitutes a piece of...

ASUS' navn er inspireret af Pegasus, den bevingede hest i græsk mytologi, der symboliserer klogskab og viden. ASUS er udtryk for styrken, renheden, og den eventyropsøgende ånd, der afspejles i denne fantastiske skabning – og stryger i vejret med hver nyt...

Med en extern digitalomvandlare kan du få ännu bättre ljud från dina digitala signalkällor. Många sådana omvandlare är dyra men ibland snubblar vi över någon billig som trollar fram guldet ur musiken. Asus Xonar Essence STU är en sådan billig...

昨年の夏にUSB-DAC「Xonar Esseence One」を発表し、オーディオ本格参入を果たしたASUS。その後、チューンナップ版の「Xonar Esseence One MUSES Edition」も投入し、改めて本気度を示したが、それに続く新モデルが投入された。今回紹介するUSB-DAC「Xonar Essence STU」だ。想定売価は4万円前後で、Oneよりも手軽な価格帯となる。 「Xonar Essence STU」 付属のスタンドを使って縦置き設置も可能だ...

華碩早先以Xonar Essence One切入外接音效裝置戰場,而後又推出Plus Edition,以及MUSES Edition版本。這3款機型設計基礎相同,小改款著眼點都圍繞著運算放大器,以強化在音響市場的競爭力。甫發表的Xonar Essence STU,有著截然不同外觀設計,加以參考內部用料來看,華碩似乎準備要回頭攻占電腦市場。這幾款產品基本功能相仿,都是USB DAC與耳擴合一架構,不過Essence STU產品定位與目標市場,和一味追高的Essence...

不錯的聲音,又改善了前代產品的小毛病,同時保留了讓DIY玩家自由調音的空間該作保護的地方也毫不手軟的加料,相較於某些隨便作就賣天價的產品,有良心多了整體雖然說不能算多頂級的,但中規中舉且能越作越好,光這點就值得推薦Thanks for reading, if you have any problem, please let me know.上一篇︰[XF] 小型超跑 動力無限 ASRock 華擎 Z87M OC Formula 主機板下一篇︰[XF]可愛電競風 i-rocks IRA05W...

Comparing the Essence STU against Fiio E10 and T-Muso DAC just doesn't make sense and we regret that. Unfortunately we do not own any other DAC & Headphone Amp on the same level as Essence STU. So we would firstly like to apologize before drawing the...

去年採訪華碩 Essence 團隊時,就透露 Essence One 並不孤單,華碩還會推出更多的 USB 音效設備,而先前的 Essence XT 與 STX 也還會進行改版,但萬萬沒想到最後這兩個訊息居然交集了,華碩最終在 Computex 所展出的新一代音效設備 Essence STU 就是延續 Essence ST 神獸卡的外接版本,並且再針對趨勢進行機能的調整。這次也在台灣正式推出前試用到這款小神獸盒 Essence STU ,跳轉開始介紹。Essence STU 並不像 Essence...
