    It seems official support for the Xonar cards has been quietly ended. Regardless, you could let ASUS support know of the problem you are having.

    You should check UNi Xonar drivers as they may help fix the issue. I recommend you try with different versions v1.81a, v1.80a, v1.71.1. While v1.71.1 help others with the same issue, it might not work with the STX II card. You can let me know of the results here or on UNi Xonar driver page.

    ok thats sad, makes me really hesitant to buy future ASUS products...
    I really like the Xonar Essence STX, much better sound than onboard soundcard gives me.

    do you know if you need to disable driver signature in Win10 do use Uni?

    Yes. For STX II cards and UNi Xonar drivers that do not end with "b" you need to install the drivers with Disable Driver Signature Enforcement option.

    Windows 10 after update doesnt even detect sound card in device manager

    After the Windows 10 updates my Asus Strix sound card i have, doesnt even detect in device manager anymore. So cant install drivers at all, unless i reinstall windows 10 to factory settings, then the card detects. Weird issue anyway.
