We had a chance to see Asus Xonar sound card at the games convention. The company claims Ultra fidelity for the card and an impressive 118 decibel signal to noise.
It is a high definition audio processor with 192KHz/24Bit sampling rate card and the card is already available in the German market for less than €200.
This is not as cheap as we would expect for this card but hey what can you do about it. The card also supports Dolby and DTS and we definitely think that it would be good idea to test it.
