    Must have

    “We found that it took a seriously high end system to expose any weaknesses with the STX II, and we doubt that many people spending just over £200 on a dedicated sound card will be disappointed.” more

    Editor's Choice

    Rest assured, the Essence STX II is a well constructed piece of hardware with quality dripping all over its sides. This is definitely the best there is to offer for those looking for a discrete sound card. The daughter card allows for real 7.1 sampling and cinematic surround sound. The drivers work great, I don't think I've EVER had a problem with the Xonar drivers and I've been using these soundcards since they appeared in the market. more

    Recomended

    Buy, do not buy? - Is the question. ASUS Essence STX II did not disappoint me, even though the card is not directed to any consumer. It's actually a real product dedicated enthusiasts who are not terrible cost, wanting to build a computer with the genre media center. Looking objectively, if we can afford meaningful cinema Essence STX purchase thus becomes a mere formality. more

    4/5

    A very tidy DAC/amplifier combo for your desktop. For the price you can get equally good, if not better offerings from 'traditional' brands. But do give the Essence a try, it may surprise you.
