Xonar U3

The Xonar U3

The spritely Xonar U3 might be small in size, but it’s big in sound, as The Tech Report recently discovered. Following on from the team’s appreciation of the Xonar DG, the U3 was given the ‘recommended’ stamp of approval, while editor Geoff Gasier had this to say on its merits;

“If your system has a free PCI or PCI Express slot, you’d do well to populate it with a Xonar sound card rather than filling one of your USB ports with the U3. The USB Xonar’s signal quality simply isn’t good enough, and its lack of high-definition audio support is difficult to ignore. Asus didn’t intend for the U3 to end up attached to desktop systems, though. On its native turf in the notebook world, the newest addition to the Xonar family truly shines.”
