PulseAudio can be forced into a specific bit depth and rate, but it will play all files at the same rate, upsampling or downsampling as needed. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own. FaheemMitha ASIO is probably not needed if you want to play games, listen to music, and that sort of thing. Here are my tests and opinions from using the two myself.

Having trouble installing a piece of hardware?

v2 Now, it xonra time to use the Xonar DX for its intended purpose: I’d appreciate any feedback from you. Having bit, kHz files does not guarantee better-sounding music, but, hey, if you have a quality sound card that can handle them, why not use them? Any help will be appreciated. Using the same system with the same patch cable, I tested the Xonar DX shown here using the same method. First, get a list of current sound cards in the system.

Notice that Floating Point and bit have the same values? Email Required, but never shown. Xonar DX installed in a system. Whether you like the result or not depends upon your tastes, so have fun experimenting! MP3s sound flat and dull by comparison — as if part of the color has been bled out. Increasing the Linux sound mixer had no effect.

Any experiences with Asus Xonar D2/PM

ALSA pretty donar, although for hardy most stuff goes through pulseaudio so in theory it shouldn’t matter. I did not test other sampling rates using bits.

Output profile sets the speaker configuration for the card and determines which volume controls will have an effect. Bumped the mouse cursor?

By changing these values, we can force PulseAudio to use a specific bit depth and rate for everything. It is easy to forget to connect the external power to the card no matter how many times you might read the instruction manual instructing you to do so.

I tend to listen using bit Hz or Hz, which sounds excellent on my system. If you have multiple cards in your system, then it might be card1 or card2. Ubuntu Forums Code of Conduct.

You can tell by the price. The full-height bracket shown here can be replaced with a half-height bracket included to accommodate smaller cases.

After rebooting Windows 7 that part never seems to changethe Xonar DX was ready for use. Therefore, dB must be better.

In fact, when testing low-end earphones, there is almost no audio difference between the ALC and the Xonar DX because the audio gear is the limiting factor. What is more important for me is the bit bit depth since that usually results in less signal noise being introduced into the audio signal linhx especially if the source is bit. If your onboard sound is produced by the ALC or something similar, then you will benefit from the Xonar DX simply because it produces a cleaner signal with hardly any noise and it features better resistance to EMI in the audio signal.
