How to enable DTS Neo: On the ALC motherboard, mouse movements can be heard through the earphones at higher listening levels. By continuing to use this website, you agree to their use. Or if someone has trouble with their own audio and just keep it in our LAN parts bin. It meets all of my goals perfectly with noise-free audio and bit, kHz playback.

Bug # “No support for Asus Xonar DSX” : Bugs : alsa-driver package : Ubuntu

The packaging is good. By changing these values, we can force PulseAudio to use a specific bit depth and rate for everything. Though if I buy a sound card and opt to go with the SoundBlaster line, I think I’ll like go with the the SB-Z if the Linux drivers seems mature enough the previous Emu chips seem to be very well supported though.

At normal listening levels, hiss and noise are nonexistent most of the time, but careful listening at certain levels do reveal hiss and noise during music playback. No need to go with internal unless you really really want surround sound analog-out. To find out more, including how to control cookies, see here: I only do one about once every quarter but definitely want working audio when I do: No music or sound played when listening for noise, hiss, and silence, which was important!


The noise is slight, but it is noticeable and irritating over time. I wanted plain line-out stereo, so I used Analog Output with the 4. You cannot exceed the quality of the source. So, I tried a different testing method: The amplifier did not introduce any noise into the audio signal. You can tell by the price.

Asus Xonar DSX and Linux | Delightly Linux

Looks like that driver actually still works with the Audigy, although no idea of what features work I assume just a subset. Looks like the latest SoundBlaster chipsets now work in Linux: The Asus Xonar DX is the definite winner.

With all volume and amplifier volume turned up to max, all I could hear was silence. That disappoints me that they’d use a RealTek on an SB-branded card.

Top violations of this rule are trolling, starting a flamewar, or not “remembering the human” aka being hostile or incredibly impolite.


This unresolved debate continues today, and it depends upon who you ask. The Xonar DX has been around for a few years, but it xxonar to reign as a champion middle-range sound card.

Lacking extra op-amps, I was unable to test this feature. One of my goals was to play a music file directly in the format that it was encoded in without resampling. They are treated as separate playback devices. If using cheapie headphones, then no.

Linux doesn’t notice any audio device on my video card a GTX though Windows does. On an inexpensive, low-end motherboard utilizing an ALC audio system, these are the analog sounds heard through headphones when moving the mouse. It IS Xinar as well, so dunno what you are gaining there.

By default, everything is commented out ; or comments a line. I did not test this. When connecting a computer to an external audio amplifier or other audio gear, use an audio isolator between the computer and the first input of your audio equipment.
