ASUS exhibits new external gaming sound card

ASUS has treated hardcore gamers with a new external gaming sound card that goes by the name of Xonar U5. The novelty comes in a stylish new black chassis that provides the user with clear and powerful 6-channeled sound through a USB connection that also provides power. A volume meter is also provided on top of the device.

The ASUS Xonar U5 can output up to 192 kHz/24-bit 5.1-channeled surround sound or stereo and S/PDIF out separately. It also has microphone input for Skype or in-game chat and packs a headphone amp for good measure. The device also supports 104 dB SNR and has <10 Hz – 44 kHz frequency response as well as three surround out 3.5 mm jacks (front, center-sub, rear), one headphone out 3.5 mm jack, one analog-in 3.5 mm jack and one S/PDIF coaxial out jack. The device offers some ASUS company software too that takes care of your sound experience. Expect to get Perfect Voice technology and Sonic Studio, which is powerful configuration software for perfect and fine-tuned control of the audio experience via an elegant and intuitive user interface.

The pricing of the Xonar U5 is unknown as of now.
