    ROG Xonar Phoebus. How good are they.

    Hello, It time for me to get a sound card and I love the way that this card looks.
    Even though this would be killer in my new build, I want a great sound card.
    I have a 6.1 receiver that I use when watch movie and playing single player games with.
    I'm also going to get a new headset. (any recommendations)
    I had a plantronics 780 gamecom. I like it but not love it. I couldn't use any of my software with it.
    So please no usb recommendations. I'll be using the headset quite a bit with MP gaming and late night movie watching.
    If this is the sound card that I'm hopeing for I'll be using it on a Maximus V EXTREME Z77 with a pair of ASUS 680 DC2T.
    I might get the RAIDR after I hear more about it. I'm doing a Darth Maul Theme so I want it to match but also look and perform great. So Thanks for any help you can give.

    1.Go and by Phoebus.
    2.Recommend it to all your friends.
    3.Get angry about all bugs that driver has.
    4.Start to post new threads on this forum,asking for NEW,NON-BETA driver.
    All that will increase our chances to get new software to get this thing work like it should.

    Read Threads on this forum and only then decide.
    I wonder how many ASUS`s employees has Phoebus,guess nobody.

    What the F..K is your problem. You need to quit taken that medication that you are on or aleast ask for a lower does. All I'm ask is how they like, love or hate there sound card. I don't have $200 to throw around,
    if you do send me yours and I'll test it out. Didn't think so. Just post how you love or hate your Xonar Phoebus. That all that I ask.

    Let`s say you have a Ferrari but it can`t go faster than 10 km\hour.
    That how it looks like to have Phoebus.
    Soundcard has superb specs and dont have good driver.
    Is that clear for you?
    I`ve already recommended you to read threads,look at the problems you could face as owner of this toy.

    No worries and no, unfortunately I have yet to complete my review with a headset as i've found myself contsantly broke to afford some headphones...I was gonna get the Vulcan's myself, but one of the online retailers I buy through doesn't have them any more lol

    I use Phoebus with 2.0 Sennheiser hd215 and sound is great.
    No humming or buzzing in Skype also.
    If Asus will fix bugs this will be sound card #1.
