post #1 of 205
Thread Starter 

Been Looking around and there is no club for this fantastic series of sound cards
So I thought i'd make one.

To Join just post a speccy screenshot of your Audio device like so

""


Drivers
 

Official Drivers and Firmwares (Click to show) Unofficial Uni Drivers (Click to show)
  • Unified driver for the following cards:
    • Asus Xonar: DG, DGX, DG SI, DS, DSX, D1 , D2, DX, D2X, HDAV, HDAV Slim, ST, STX, Xense.
    • Other C-Media 8788 audio chip based cards (C-Media Panel only): Auzentech X-Meridian & X-Meridian 2G; HT Omega Claro Plus, 2, Halo,  eClaro; Razer Barracuda AC-1.
      The following Asus cards won’t work and will not be supported with UNi Xonar Drivers: Asus Xonar  U1, U3, U7, EssenceOne, Essence STU, ROG Phoebus , D-Kara.
 
UNi Xonar 1816/1821 v1.71 (latest)
UNi Xonar 1814/1815 v1.64  mirror    (proven stable)


 

 

Tools

Xonar Switch

What does this do (Click to show)

XonarSwitch is a new application that allows you to control various Xonar’s audio settings, define them as switchable profiles, and apply them on-the-fly without having to stop the audio playback.

The beta testing of XonarSwitch is taking place on the MaxedTech website, allowing the author of the application to gather user feedback from the UNi Xonar community and give its members the opportunity to try out the application and contribute to its growth and polishing.

 

Dolby Home Theatre

Instructions (Click to show)
Place it in the same folder as the uni-Xonar installer, and it adds Dolby Home Theatre to the install package. Among other things, it gives you a neat adaptive equalizer, some surround effects and voice enhancers. However (unless I'm mistaken) it only works with 2 channels, so it's great for Netflix, stereo movies, music etc, but not so great for games.

+1 XonarSwitch is an upgrade in so many ways. I'll dig up a link for the Dolby Home Theatre mod too, and posts screenshot when I get back to the desktop.

Great new resource. +Rep for OP. No love for the poor beleaguered Phoebus, or are the doors shut here on that sorry episode?

I'm not a Xonar user but maybe somebody could kindly list all the models (and if they have a headphone amp). It's a confusing range; and difficult to work out the old from the relatively new.
