Asus Xonar Phoebus PCI-E Soundcard Review
Patrick "MACMAC" MacMillan
Hardwarecanucks have just posted a review of the gaming orientated ASUS Xonar Phoebus sound card.
Let's see what they had to say:
"In most ways the Phoebus is what weve come to expect from a gaming-grade audio device. It boasts good SNR, amazing background noise reduction abilities, an excellent headphone circuit, and a bevy of software improvements that have the potential to impress hardcore PC gaming enthusiasts. The end result is actually quite impressive when compared against many other audio devices that were supposedly geared towards gamers.
In these situations the enhanced software abilities of the Phoebus can indeed net tangible benefits via improved sound quality over previous models. These software improvements coupled with the included, microphone-equipped controller hub will allow consumers to purchase a good pair of headphones rather than a mediocre headset and get overall better sound quality without going over their budget."
The Xonar Phoebus is a top-notch sound card that should greatly appeal to gaming enthusiasts. However, audiophiles would be wise to opt for the unparalleled Asus Xonar Essence STX.
