Asus Soundcard ESSENCE STX II Hi-Fi Quality with 124dB SNR Headphone Amplifier Retail

Keeping the audiophile spirit and philosophy alive
Four years after the debut of Essence STX the long-term holder of the number-one position in Head-Fis Sound Cards segment¸ as voted by highly-satisfied users globally ASUS remains committed to delivering ever better high-end sound cards to delight the most demanding audiophiles. Drawing on years of experience in developing Essence One¸ Essence STU and Essence III¸ Essence STX II delivers meticulous design¸ quintessential performance and profound musicality elements that shape the spirit of the whole Essence Hi-Fi series.

Legendary audio quality that just got better
Industry-leading 124dB SNR
Essence STX II delivers industry-leading 124dB SNR audio clarity¸ a much-envied quality inherited from the revolutionary and widely-acclaimed Essence STX sound card and up to 64 times (64X) better than typical onboard audio hardware. Headphone output reaches a fantastic 120dB SNR.

Ultra-low jitter
A high-precision clock is crucial to audiophiles. Integrated circuits are susceptible to heat and temperature changes¸ which is why Essence STX II includes a premium temperature-compensated crystal oscillator (TCXO) clock source. It is an ultra-accurate timing technology that ensures ultra-low jitter.

Clean and consistent power supply
Essence STX II uses a dedicated four-pin Molex power connection rather than drawing power from the expansion slot like other cards¸ and that means a cleaner supply of electricity. Optimized power delivery is further assured with high-fidelity low-dropout (LDO) regulators unprecedented in the audio-card industry. As well¸ audiophile-appreciated WIMA capacitors deliver balanced sound.
