Running the Xonar Essence ST on PCI-e board

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
I am trying this, I am using the same bridge chipset as used on the STX, this is actually different to the one used in the D2X.

I contacted the manufactuar of the bridge board(not the chipset) and they gave me a place that ships internationally.





Board manufactuar website


Chipset manufactuar website


Proof its the same chipset as on the STX


I will report back in a couple weeks on how this goes.

Looks like it will work ok. You may have to mod something to fully mount the Xonar, and the added height may well block some of the audio ports.

Yea I am thinking of using a PCI extension ribbon, I can only find PCIE ribbons at the moment though.

Why not just trade with someone who has an STX?

I want the anti jitter, I know it's neglible and reviews concluded otherwise, this was supposedly due to proximity with the graphics card though, but I also want multi channel analogue output.

Adapter arrived today, built in a sweat shop for sure.

The power cables arnt even sleaved properly, not sure if the wiring is suppose to be copper.

I am probably gonna insulate it myself with some silicon.

When it arrived it was just carelessly wrapped in foam wrap and put into an envelope, so the part where it screws in to the case was bent in transit.

Just glad it was QC passed twice, I hope thats indicating shiftworker for 3am/pm and not a score of 3/12.

Just ordered this:

So it doesnt exacly work properly, there is constant crackling whenever sound is played, not sure what is causing this and not even 100% sure its due to the bridge but I am going to assume so, going to eliminate the ribbon and see if thats the cause.

The plot thickens, raising the sampling rate lowers the speed sound plays.

Gonna try STX drivers.

Tricked STX drivers into installing and same thing.

Got it working, just had to not use that ribbon. biggrin.gif

Sounds nice.

Although not sure 192Khz is gonna work, it slows down the music but the other 3 rates work okay.

Trying to get the Ribbon to work.

I tried shielding it with alfoil but it made things worse, the computer wouldnt POST with a PCIE out of resources error, or the card wouldnt be detected at all in windows.

I might rewire the bridge and sleeve each tiny cable individually but it doesnt solve the 192Khz incompatibility.
