With the U7 ASUS has made wonderful strides in improving their USB-based Xonar offerings. What was once a source of derision in the audiophile community may not become an overnight success with it, but there’s proof here that USB and audio fidelity can walk hand in hand. More importantly, for the average consumer who needs a fast, pain-free, affordable external upgrade to their existing system’s soundcard abilities, the Xonar U7 is hard to beat. It certainly will never replace dedicated PCIe solutions, but for anyone using an SFF or mobile systems this is one of the best options available
The Xonar U7 is truly an incredible audio component at this price point, and would be an excellent piece at substantially more. The versatility of the U7 makes it a perfect choice for a variety of applications, from gaming to strict audio. However, the Xonar U7 seems to fall most naturally into a setting where it would be used for all of these scenarios, and makes a perfect center for a multimedia/gaming/entertainment PC where its incredible staging and versatility can truly be appreciated. For this, along with excellent sound quality, the ASUS Xonar U7 takes our Editor’s Choice Award, and receives our highest recommendation.
This compact device is capable of a number of connections ranging from headphones to home theater systems. Windows volume controls for both speaker and microphone are placed for convenient access. Lastly the USB connectivity opens up this sound card as an option for laptop users. With an planned retail pricing of $89.99 plus shipping, the Xonar U7 is set for the midrange market competing against ASUS’s other older desktop Xonar DX card and Creative’s offerings such as the Sound Blaster X-Fi USB sound cards. We’re awarding the Xonar U7 USB sound card our Editor’s Choice Award since we not only had a very enjoyable time listening to whatever was thrown at it, but for exceeding expectations for how much it is set to cost.
