ASUS Essence STX II 7.1 Review
ASUS Essence STX II 7.1 soundcard features a multichannel daughterboard which delivers true 7.1-channel surround having high-fidelity SNR outputs of 120dB. This Audio card incorporates meticulous design, profound musicality and remarkable performance in attaining a user-friendly device.
The Essence STX II 7.1 is a premium TCXO clock source and top-notch headphone amplifier, whose high-quality audio quality incorporates the renowned Xonar Essence ST/STX technology. Look forward to enjoying ultra-low jitter when utilizing the premium TCXO clock source. As well, the audio card offers consistent and clean power supply, courtesy of low-dropout (LDO), high-fidelity regulators along with WIMA® capacitors that generate satisfying sound levels. The headphone amplifier supports a maximum of 600ohm-headphone impedance, having extra gain for in-ear monitors (IEMs).
The op-amp exclusive swap kit incorporates three op-amps that provide easy tone tuning, whereas the celebrated MUSES 8920 as well as MUSES 8820 op-amps offer spacious sound imaging and true-to-life musicality. The sound quality delivered by the STX sound card is significantly better than what is produced by regular onboard audio hardware.
It is critical for audiophiles to have a clock of high precision. Integrated circuits are easily affected by changes in temperature and heat. It is why this gadget includes premium crystal oscillator clock source that is temperature compensated. This highly-accurate timing technology ascertains that you experience ultra-low jitter. Essence STX II employs a four-pin, dedicated Molex power connection as opposed to drawing power from expansion slot, which leads to cleaner electricity supply.
The easily fitting daughterboard slides into slot adjacent to the Essence STX II 7.1, which enables installation to be more convenient. Every particular channel is customizable in full, having nine op-amp sockets which can be swapped. This offers audiophiles complete freedom of creating the ideal experience of Dolby® Digital Live surround sound for their listening environment and ears. Users can create distinct tonal combinations and timbres using these op-amp sockets available.
The audio card will enable you to utilize earpieces which channel audio output directly to ear canal, therefore isolating ambient noise. All this furnishes you with quiet listening without disturbance. One MUSES 8820 and two Texas Instruments, along with a clamp tool, render it easy removing the op-amp microchips. Essence STX II gains greatly from Dolby® Home Theater technologies, turning your PC into an impressive system for home theatre. This boosts all entertainment audio functions. Dolby® Virtual Speaker refines 5.1-channel and two-channel stereo content into superb virtual surround sound, even when only using two speakers. This leads to dynamic and enveloping sound being produced.
Dolby® headphone simulates flawless quality of surround for use with personal audio via powerful processing of digital signal. It delivers a maximum of 7.1-channel surround, which is better than traditional headphones. Overall, ASUS Essence STX II 7.1 is a versatile product which should suit the intricate needs of audio card users.
