We are truly amazed at how good this sound card is. It even includes Dolby Digital Live (DDL) and DTS Connect which is very important when a Home Theatre PC is connected to hi-fi equipment. Without DDL or DTS Connect you would not hear any sound when you leave Windows Media Centre, because hi-fi equipment only understands Dolby Digital or DTS encoded sound. Both DDL and DTS Connect convert the sound coming from your Home Theatre PC to either Dolby Digital or DTS respectively, in real time!
The ASUS Xonar is also the only sound card in the world to support the high definition sound found on Blu-ray DVD movies. Without it, the sound on Blu-ray DVD movies is down sampled to standard DVD sound quality.
