    Will this driver work with an ASUS XONAR AE 7.1 in Windows 10? If so, which one do I have to download?


    • CarvedInside12 Oct 2019 @ 01:52

      No. As I have stated here, it won't and will not be supported.

      In 7.1 and 5.1 mode, when using flexi bass, the stx II chops off the bass and sends it to the bass output on the daugterboard. But in 2 channel and 4 channel it chops off the bass and gets rid off it i cannot find the bass anywhere. Is there a solution for this, to keep the bass in 2 and 4 channel mode.

    I have Windows10, version 1903, and OS-Build 18362.418. My personal computer is in a test mode.

    I have just installed the audio card "XONAR HDAV 1.3 slim". When I tried to install its driver, I underwent the phenomenon "BSOD".
    Why? What should I do? I want to install a driver without digital signature. How can I disable driver signature verification? Though I tried it, I underwent BSOD. What UNI driver do I need?


    • CarvedInside13 Oct 2019 @ 19:54

      You don't get a BSOD when installing drivers that don't have a valid digital signature, unless that happens because of a Windows 10 bug. Maybe the driver version you tried has a problem with Xonar HDAV cards. Which drivers have you tried? Try different versions (1.80a, 1.75a, 1.71.1).

    I can confirm that the Asus Xonar DSX works properly with my MSI B450 Tomahawk. One issue though I have run into (I've only tried 3 drives so far 1.75, 1.81a R3, and the official asus drivers) is whenever I have some other audio playing in the background like music. If I switch the input to stereo mix in windows or discord the soundcard causes my headphones to make a pop noise. This also occurs whenever I open discord while listening to music. I assume the audio buffer is being overflown.


    • CarvedInside18 Oct 2019 @ 21:59

      Thank you for the info.
      The pop noise when switching through the recording devices is normal behavior for the Xonar cards. I haven't found a way to eliminate that.

    Salve. With x570 tuf wi-fi xonar d2x instant reboot in youtube video. Driver UNi Xonar W10 1825 v1.81a r2. error kernel 41 (63).


    • CarvedInside22 Oct 2019 @ 00:21

      The board is ASUS TUF GAMING X570-PLUS (WI-FI) right?


      • tiz22 Oct 2019 @ 21:06

        Yes. Thanks.


      • tiz24 Oct 2019 @ 01:26

        any solution? csm in bios enable or disable?

    Is there a solution for this, to keep the bass in 2 and 4 channel mode and hopefully send it to the bass output on the daughtercard.

    My hardware:
    Msi b350 tomahawk
    AMD Ryzen 1300x
    asus xonar dx
    not work upmix stereo song
    not create any dolby registry ( regedit )


    • CarvedInside31 Oct 2019 @ 06:00

      Read FAQ Q&A 4 about stereo upmix configuration.
      I do not understand what are you trying to do and what problem you have with Dolby.


      • Alok01 Nov 2019 @ 12:13

        if i play any song (dx setting 2 channel & 5.1)
        that setting upmix working but if dx setting 6 channel & 5.1 not work upmix & dolby

    I was looking into the Essence STX II 7.1. I have Win 10 latest version and an intel PC system. I have 2 front passive speakers, 2 powered subs, and a stereo amp for the two front passive speakers. I want to run 2.2 setup (just need 2.1 compatibility and I'll split sub out). I like the STX II 7.1 because of the analogue sub out. Can you setup a 2.1 system with this card/software? Does the Xonar software offer some type of crossover? There seems to be a lot of nuances to making this card work with new versions of Win 10. Is the sound/amp/hardware/software of this card worth the extra effort (rather than buying a new turn-key AE-7 or EVGA Nu Audio)? Any thoughts or input is appreciated.

    Hello! Thanks for all your work on these drivers-- they really have saved me a lot in the past.

    I've just moved house and I'm reinstalling my audio setup, Windows 10 x64 with a DSX. I'm outputting via DTS S/PDIF to an Onkyo TX-NR509. I'm setup in standard 5.1 configuration with the output device set to 24/96.

    I'm getting a bit of an odd problem, though: my center channel is working, as when I test it with Windows, it comes through loud and clear. Unfortunately, whenever I try to use a native 5.1 application (Battlefield V has been one of my main test beds but this occurs in all games; BFV just has had known-good 5.1 for me in the past), I get audio from every surround and the subwoofer, but never the center channel. The only content where I have gotten any audio at all from my center channel is the Windows test, or when I force upmixing with Surround Max in XonarSwitch.

    Any suggestions for things to try here? I realize this may not be an issue with your drivers, but I'm a bit out of my depth and I've tried everything I know how to fix.

    I reintroduced a Xonar DG to my system with a generic ASMedia 1083-based PCI bridge and it worked out of the box. No configuration was done software wise, the card used to be in a motherboard with native PCI slots. I could even put the bridge's bracket on with some fudging.


  10. MUKESH11 Nov 2019 @ 12:52

    if i play any song (dx setting 2 channel & 5.1)
    that setting upmix working but if dx setting 6 channel & 5.1 not work upmix &(dolby setting)

    With the absolute latest windows 10 update and using UNi Xonar W10 1825 v1.81a r2, I have to programs that always crash on windows shutodwn and seem to be related to HsMgr Application.

    Details here on the EA forums: https://answers.ea.com/t5/Origin-Client-Web-Technical/Origin-preventing-windows-shutdown-windows-10/m-p/5834018#M16347

    Any workarounds you suggest about this? Thanks


    • CarvedInside11 Nov 2019 @ 19:08

      Have you enabled GX in ASUS Audio Center? If yes, disable it. If no, install the drivers with "Low DPC Latency" configuration or disable the HsMgr entries in "Task Manager"-> Startup after which end the HsMgr processes.


  12. George12 Nov 2019 @ 13:48

    Windows 10 Pro 1909 (18363.418), Xonar DG, driver 1822 v1.75a r3. Works fine.


  13. Warren12 Nov 2019 @ 23:54

    What would be the best drivers for a fully up to date Windows 10 64-bit system? I am installing a Xonar DG PCI card.


  14. kean3D14 Nov 2019 @ 03:03

    Windows 10 Pro 1909 (18363.476), STXII drivers 11.5-v1.80b-r3
    Asus Prime B450-Plus, all ok tho


    • CarvedInside14 Nov 2019 @ 20:44

      Good to know. Thank you for the information. Let us know if this changes.


      • kean3D02 Dec 2019 @ 22:36

        saw that the new bios with agesa 1.0.04b is out
        really afraid to update since no rollback is allowed (still with agesa 1.0.03abba one thats is ok)
        reed alot of problems with pci-ex peripherals and x570 mainboards
        still don't know if also b450 have theese problems or only x570 with pci-ex gen4 support which seems is the main problem with the new bios


        • CarvedInside02 Dec 2019 @ 23:29

          I don't see anything important with to be worth updating except maybe faster boot. If your system works fine there is no need to update.
          Discussions regarding some of the issues with AGESA are taking place here.

    Is there support for Xonar 5.1 SE?
