My motherboard and his may differ, but I have not had a single lockup or problem related to sound playback.
Hmm. Well, I typically encounter an issue when I switch audio modes in the middle of audio playback. I don't think I'm supposed to do that anyway. The "sound corruption" does happen for me in that case, Titanium HD or XtremeMusic. However, only my Xonar D1 has thrown a BSOD because I switched from my X-Fi to it in the middle of music playback.

Asus is generally much better for music than gaming, but still does a good job for gaming.

The Titanium HD is great for gaming and 5.1 movie and can still hold it's own in the music department, just not as great as Asus.

For that reason I would say grab the Titanium HD. It suits your needs the best unless you're trying to save money. If so, then just grab a DX or something. Asus product, great for music, cheaper, still good for gaming.

If you don't care about saving the...50 dollars or whatever, then go with the Titanium HD. Better for gaming, still good for music.
Asus makes decent cards but Creative did up the game a bit with the Ti HD. Even though I have the Titanium HD, I still go back to the Xonar D1 for music in most cases. It has a warmer sound that's genuinely more comfortable to listen to. The Titanium HD is a detail and subsequent treble monster. The bass is light (compared to my D1) on my JVC HA-DX3, even when using the parametric EQ in Audio Creation mode.

In terms of gaming...hmm. It's actually a tough call which one I like more because when it comes to racing games and other non-positioning-critical games, I would rather use the Xonar D1. It just sounds more powerful using the same headphones. However, Battlefield Bad Company 2 (my most played FPS as of late) is chock full of different sounds from all around you. The Xonar just can't keep up with that. While it provides better sounds, the positioning is kind of a crapshoot. The X-Fi can actually keep up with BC2 in my experience and that alone is good enough to make me keep it.

Well, that's one school of thought. From experience, I don't agree with it. PC161 plus essence stx will sound pretty good for average user. Also the HD isn't specifically used for 5.1 sound. Its 5.0 is similar to how the STX's audio processor works.

Thanks for all of the input. It has been very helpful

This was the initial impression I had when I first started looking. I've found a lot of reviews saying that HD does not suffer from these issues.

How long is a long time? Glitches of any kind are a huge deal breaker for me

This is about the conclusion that I have come to- that either will be overkill for my needs and sound quality will be tremendously improved either way. I may get new headphones eventually but most of sound will be coming from speakers (RCA outputs), so headphone amp will be mostly unused / overkill. (although purchasing high quality phones in the next few months is not off the table). Since I place more importance on gaming, I am leaning toward HD. (and I don't mind paying more now to be able to accomodate better speakers / headphones later)

This was very helpful and one of the subjective things I've been wondering about. The general consensus is xonar better for music and xfi better for games, but none of those opinions have put much weight to how much better one of the other is. Overall SQ vs positional SQ is something I'll have to think about. Does the x-fi doing better at positional SQ apply to speakers too?





Can anybody provide any opinions on mic input. I've read the mic input on HD isn't that good. I could use my USB mic if I had to, but it's kind of meh. I could always get a better one I suppose. (Just trying to look at this from all angles)

I think I'm just going to order an HD and try both of them for a couple weeks to see if I have one preference from one to the other. Judging the overkill for my hardware, unless I have a major preference for one sound signature or the other, it'll probably come down to software preference, like for software features, and whether I run into any issues. Any additional input is appreciated!

Speaker positioning is about level IMO. If you're using speakers, in general details are going to be left out anyway and you don't have the advantage of a large soundstage to pinpoint different sounds.

Both cards will be a massive step up from your onboard sound.

Like i said, i only have experience with the older generation X-Fis but i found the Essence to sound better in comparison. From what i remember, going to the Xonar i felt like music sounded more pure if that makes any sense. Could have been placebo though.

If you're planning on getting a pair of good headphones in the near future, the Essence will be great because of its built in headphone amp and software switch. If not, it might be better for you to pick up a Xonar D2 since it has a newer Asus AV200 chip.

Gaming wise, i love the Xonar. When i switched over, i was anticipating a huge hit in directional audio because of the lack of newer EAX support but i have nothing but good things to say about the Xonar. I like to play my games (mostly BC2) with the sound loud for the immersion, and almost every time i play i find myself using the positional audio to my advantage. Of course the X-Fi sounded good, but with the Xonar i notice the quality of game audio much more frequently and have had many "wow" moments.

I would say that either card will be good for you since you're going to be buying the top dog of either side, but my recommendation goes for the Xonar. The Xonar sounds much better overall than the X-Fi, and the lack of obscene creative driver problems makes it an easy decision for me.

I suppose to end this thread it's best to say that Asus products have better sound quality, but the Titanium HD will give you the advantage in positioning and in games because of it's treble setup. So you personally have to decide what's more important to you? Accurate beautiful sound or that advantage in gaming you get from the Titan HD.

That's completely personal and we can't tell you which to get aside from that.
