    Thank you for continuing to help answers those with questions.

    I bought a Xonar DG in attempts to alleviate the white noise present from my onboard via audio. The problem I am having is that when analog out is set to Headphone mode - immediately white noise begins to be heard. However, other mode such as 2-speakers, etc dont experience white noise. Is this possibly a a faulty amp or is it just very sensitive to the pc internal environment?

      When you switch to headphone mode you are using the front panel connection?
      You should take a look at FAQ Q&A:21.

        I'm actually using the rear headphone/front speaker supplied by the xonar DG. The white noise automatically starts right when the relay switches to headphone mode and disappears when it switches to any other analog out modes. I'm guessing that it may just be a GPU coil whine that is resonating through all the components because I exchanged the sound card but the same issue occurs. So I'll likely have to make an aluminum shield. thanks!


        • CarvedInside21 Dec 2016 @ 01:31

          The white noise could be related to headphone amp gain that could be different than when using the jack output as front speakers. If your headphones aren't build for a specific amp gain you should try with the amp gain set to VO-IP or Pro-gaming mode. If that does not work you could use them with the jack configured as front speakers.

    I Feel like I can have my volume even higher now with your latest driver than the latest one from ASUS. I never liked getting like 3rd party drivers or programs, Always thought they were going to make everything weird and sound shitty but this is working smooth so I should calm the fuck down.

    Hey, awesome project. Thanks for doing this. I can see that you are hosting this website on digital ocean. I'd recommend you to enable ssl for your website. You can just use Let's Encrypt, which is free.

      Thank you for the tip. For this kind of website I don't see a reason for using https at the moment. Https is kinda of enabled through CloudFlare if you want to use it, but the internal links redirect on http version atm.

    Thx CarvedInside you are diamond for the work you have done donation incoming …if it was not for you we would be stuck with non supported Asus old drivers …
    Take care and again thank you

    Also quick question is there a way to use the H6 daughter board as a extra 3 channel stereo output so basically with one card and the daughter board have 4 stereo outs or 8 mono out .....


    • CarvedInside04 Jan 2017 @ 23:39

      I don't understand the question. By any chance you want 4 different stereo outputs (each output with its own audio file)? Which audio card do you have?


  5. Cedric01 Jan 2017 @ 21:58

    In the mixer, what is the best Output Volume? Standard value is 76, but some say that the output should be around 0dB which would be around 50. Is there clipping if it goes over 0dB?

    Thanks for the driver anyway, i've been using it since 4 years and never had problems.


    • CarvedInside04 Jan 2017 @ 23:35

      I'm not familiar with clipping problems with the standard output value. Until I see some evidence or experience that clipping manifesting itself somehow, I am inclined to think the standard value if fine. If you have some links to those comments/pages where it was recommended that you set the output volume to 50 then please share them with us.

    Any idea when xonar switch development will start back up again. Ta.

    Hello, I have an Omega Claro II
    I try playing 192khz file, all settings in c-media and AIMP3 set to 192khz and no sound. 96khz works perfectly. Why is that?
    I have my speakers connected through optic cable. Is it maybe not capable of producing 192khz?
    Any suggestions?
    My speakers are Edifier studio 8.


    • CarvedInside05 Jan 2017 @ 00:21

      Hello. According to the specs of the card and speakers 192KHz playback is supported. There are multiple reasons why this would not work: driver bug, Windows bug, audio API bug, audio player bug,a configuration issue or a card defect. I will give you some pointers maybe you can sort it out:
      Which audio API are you using (ASIO, WASAPI, DirectSound) and have you tried with the other ones?
      Try with a different audio player as well.
      Try to see if it works with the onboard card (if that one supports 192KHz optical output).
      Try different driver versions, try with 1.80a, 1.80b, 1.75a and 1.64 drivers.

      FYI From a audio quality standpoint using the card's optical output you are bypassing the card's DAC and op-amps and use those in the speakers instead, so it makes your Claro II card kind of useless. Depending on the quality of the DAC in your speakers it might be better or worse that in your sound card. If you want to use the audio card for the sound processing you will need to use the analog connections.

    Hi I have a question related to the C-media panel.

    Asus own sound program has different dolby headphone presets for movies, gaming etc. What is the C-media equivalent of that?


  9. wiiliam05 Jan 2017 @ 15:23

    may i know what is the best drivers for asus xonar dg on windows 10 64bit with latest anniversary patch?


    • Kahbrohn06 Jan 2017 @ 16:05

      Try the "latest" (1.80a r3). If this does not work for you for whatever reason, try the "recommended". I use the latest on a DGX just fine. Make sure you CLEAN ALL traces of previous drivers as per instructions.


  10. Oliver06 Jan 2017 @ 10:19

    Any plans on supporting the SOAR?
    Or is it already, since its a "strix"??


    • CarvedInside06 Jan 2017 @ 19:17

      Don’t have any plans to make modded drivers for the Asus STRIX soundcards. Asus STRIX soundcards have a different audio chip and audio driver than Asus Xonar cards.


      • Oliver06 Jan 2017 @ 21:56

        Oh, ok.
        Besides the drivers, would a strix be a real "upgrade" over a DSX?
        running modded HD558 and 3-way speaker sys....


        • CarvedInside08 Jan 2017 @ 02:33

          Hardware wise Strix Soar should offer better sound quality but I can't recommend buying it because of the crappy out-of-the box drivers and non-existing long-term support that ASUS/C-Media offer. Maybe a card like Sennheiser GSX 1000 or GSX 1200 PRO is a better investment.

    Hi, I'm using Asus Essence STX II sound card. Does UNi Xonar driver support this card ?

    If yes then which version of driver should I use?



    • CarvedInside08 Jan 2017 @ 00:37

      Hi. As it is written in the post above the STX II card is supported. The "UNi Xonar STXII 11.5 v1.80b r3" drivers are just right for STX II cards.


  12. Hung D10 Jan 2017 @ 16:07

    I have the STX 1 what is the right driver for it?


  13. Pisti12 Jan 2017 @ 23:16

    I have the asus xonar d1 what is the right driver for it?


    • CarvedInside14 Jan 2017 @ 04:52

      All drivers will work only the STXII drivers require additional steps to be installed on non-STXII cards.
      As I've replied in the comment above, go with 1.80a or 1.75a. If you have Win10 you may want to try 1.80a first.


  14. Sam13 Jan 2017 @ 06:30

    Has anyone run into the loud static problem recently? It's been ages since I've had it and I haven't had a chance to try out my headphone amp to see if it'll help with the static's volume. I know I'll run into it one day but I'm getting antsy here.


    • Aran14 Jan 2017 @ 13:37

      Today I was watching a Youtube video when suddenly a very loud high pitch noise blew my ears. Changing settings in the xonar driver did not help, had to restart the PC. This was the second time I ran into this issue. No idea what causes it though.


  15. Nucleoprotein13 Jan 2017 @ 14:35

    Hello. Long time passed I have been here (as Virus) - I sold my Xonar DX but here are 1825 drivers:
