This card offer very good sound and work fine in a modern Linux. My only complain is about the power plug. I understand why we need to have extra power on it but the quality of that plug is not there; a bit lousy. Why don't use a better plug? Increase the cost by 10$-20$ and use a solid 12v plug that is not affected by the weight of the cable... I got some issue because the cable was a bit moving so the sound was low. When playing with the cable, sound was back to good...

Other than this plug, this is one excellent card for PCIe and/or Linux users.

Well my X-fi died after using it for 7 years or so. I moved to the high-specs Realtek on my motherboard, but got sick of it.

So I got the DX. Excellent audio to my 5.1 gaming headset, and to my wireless stereo headset. Needing a power cable is a bit lame but it's the fault of pci-e x1 not giving enough juice. But as a benefit, it'll fit in any of my 6 pci-e slots.

The ASUS driver are pretty lame. The interface is poor and tiny, adn the audio samples are very lwo quality.

However, I foudn the custom "UNi Xonar" drivers adn they sound even better,. THey also have a little application taht lets me switch from 5.1 to FP headphones with a Hotkey, which eased the pain of there not being a separate device for the Front Penal audio.

Quite happy with it, overall.
