The Asus Xonar U1 is an external USB audio device that improves the laptop or PC’s underachieving audio by first eliminating electromagnetic interference (EMI) and noisy DC circuits inside the PC chassis. It then utilizes the high quality DAC (digital to analog convertor) to bring about crisp, clear music or gaming audio in the original flavor that was meant to be heard. The Xonar U1 provides a huge boost to PC gamers by supporting EAX and DirectSound HW acceleration for best gaming experience in Windows VISTA and XP. The ASUS Xonar U1 brings further enjoyment to the user by utilizing the high quality internal DAC for playback of original details of MP3s; and superb output with the built-in high-fidelity headphone amplifier to achieve best listening quality with most stereo headphones (8~150 ohms @ >10mWx2).
The Asus Xonar U1 also comes with a complete set of technologies from Dolby Studio to provide users with the best audio experience possible. With the advanced noise cancelling algorithm, along with the bundled exclusive Array Microphone, the Asus Xonar U1 can suppress ambient noises up to 20 dB – leaving only clear voice for VOIP applications (Skype, MSN, Google, QQ, etc.) or online gaming. Just connect Notebooks or PCs with Xonar U1 to a home theater system and start enjoying PC game or movies with original 5.1 channel audio or expanded stereo audio by Dolby Prologic IIx from home theater speakers.
