Asus Xonar DX 7.1 W/ Klipsch 2.1 ProMedia

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
What can I expect from that setup?

I got a killer deal on the sound card cause my friend gave me a gift card for newegg which he does not use.

The speakers were given to me as a gift for some CAD work I did for a restaurant I used to work at. ya know little inside bonus wink.gif

But anyway, will the sound card make the speakers sound better? or even clearer and crisper?

p.s. I also have a pair of Sennheiser HD 280 PRO's. Will I see a nice boost in quality while using these?

Good, legitimate information will be noted!

Compared to motherboard audio, yes it will sound much much better. From what I have gathered so far, the Asus AV100 chip is a re branded CMI 8788 Oxygen chip (which do sound incredible).

Those Klipsch are regarded as one of the better out of the box 2.1 speakers so you should see a nice improvement in audio quality with it paired on the Xonar DX
