Whether you are a music buff, gamer, or into multimedia, upgrading your notebook sound to the ASUS U3 is going to be a huge jump in audio quality. Frankly, for the price, the ASUS U3 offers far more quality and performance than one could possible...

Overall, the ASUS Xonar U3 is not really impressive by any means, but it has its uses. It can add an optical audio output to a system that doesn't have one, such as a laptop. It has some features not normally found on integrated audio too; Dolby...

It really is quite impressive what the small stature of the ASUS Xonar U3 is able to pull off. The size was quite misleading, but after you plug it in and slip on your favorite headphones you'll see what all the fuss is about. It offers quite a lineup...

A USB sound card can be a convenient and effective way to improve sound quality for a laptop or netbook, which might have less than impressive audio capabilities. The ASUS Xonar U3 USB sound card is a perfect example of this, and it just works...

Asus sells the Xonar U3 for Rs. 1,800, exclusive of taxes. At that price, it’s way cheaper than some of the more serious sound cards such as the Xonar DX and the Xonar Essense STX. Those cards are made for a completely different set of users with...

If your system has a free PCI or PCI Express slot, you'd do well to populate it with a Xonar sound card rather than filling one of your USB ports with the U3. The USB Xonar's signal quality simply isn't good enough, and its lack of high-definition audio...

My experience with the Xonar U3 really showed how far average sound card technology has progressed. The fact that one piece of the chain toward very good sound quality can be had for under $100 and in such a small package is absolutely brilliant....

De ASUS Xonar U3 is het minst van alle geteste kaarten een 'echte geluidskaart'. Hij ondersteunt geen 24-bit audio en heeft een matige signaal/ruisverhouding. Voor de echte audiofiel is het dus geen aanrader, maar vooral als de ingebouwde geluidskaart...

Geliştirdiği taşınabilir bilgisayarla kendinden söz ettiren Asus, Xonar U3 sayesinde notebooklar kişisel bir Hi-Fi merkezine dönüşüyor. USB bağlantısına takılan Xonar U3 ile müzik dinlerken, film seyrederken ve oyun oynarken daha temiz bir ses, bas ve...

International Review By Fragbite on 60

Vi ska göra en liten titt på ASUS Xonar-serie här på Fragbite. Xonar är deras serie av olika typer av ljudkort. Då vi normalt håller oss till gamingutrustning, kringutrustning och ibland någon skärm eller dator så är detta inte direkt vårt område. Så...

Der er port til hovedtelefoner og mikrofon, og minijack-udgangen giver også optisk signal. Kortet understøtter lydformater på 16 bit og 48 kilohertz, men ikke mere.Ret usædvanligt var der problemer med at installere driverne. Først efter et par...

Странный девайс попал мне в руки. По габаритам он сравним с распухшей флэшкой или MP3-плеером. С одной стороны у него имеется USB-разъем под снимающимся колпачком, а с другой есть два отверстия под мини-джек 3,5 мм. По заявлениям на красочной коробке, я...

Jedním z častých nedostatků většiny notebooků je kvalita a také hlasitost vestavěných reproduktorů a není se ani čemu divit. Primárním úkolem notebooku je být přenosný a nabídnout především dostatečný výkon pro práci či hry. Zvuk je v takovém případě až...

International Review By PC for Alla Extreme on 81

har skett med en enorm fart de senaste åren. Går vi tillbaka 5-10 år så passade bärbara främst som arbetsdatorer och både grafik och ljud låg långt bakom vad vi kunde få på en stationär dator. Idag så ser det lite annorlunda ut. Fler och fler...

International Review By gelezki.info on

Asus сделала огромный шаг навстречу владельцам мобильных компьютерных систем. Как мы видели, в качестве замены стационарной Xonar DG новая U3 не подходит, ибо воспроизводит звук явно хуже. Впрочем, в системах с занятыми PCI слотами новая звуковая карта с...

隨著筆電USER越來越多,很多筆電族應該都有想要享受好聲音,但是內建的音訊輸出表現總是不怎麼樣的經驗, 或許有些人會隨身帶個小型耳擴或是USB DAC來解決音效表現不佳的問題,但一來耳擴體型雖然可以有效小型化, 但來源還是得靠內建輸出。USBDAC雖解決了質的問題,但可能又有外接電力,或是體型較大不方便隨身攜帶的麻煩。 而現在ASUS Xonar 家族的新成員U3的出現或許可以提供一個新的解答。 Xonar U3外盒: 特色一覽:對我而言,最主要主要亮點應該算是內建耳擴 ...
