This almost seems like a product that Apple would release, like a gag product from the marketing department. "Alright guys, we need to come up with a really stupid name for an otherwise good product. No, Cameron, we can't call it "the new xonar.""

It looks kind of tacky, but I suppose Asus is competing against Creative's gamer brand with this product.
