Personally, I would like to see ASUS release the Raid Deluxe without the external Raid box. That box adds quite a bit to the cost. The cards are great as a starting point, much better than having nothing to enhance your audio, be it a soundcard or external dac.

yeah but for like 50 bucks you get a Fiio e10 which will stuff 90% of someones need. Unless you want to 7.1 but then again there are better solutions.

Exactly! If you have a ROG board already that has the supremeFX asus chips you don't need to spend any money on a sound card unless you have a pair of HD700+ or T-90 or Audeze LCD or some really high end monitors and for those things you would have to spend A LOT more for something that is external and not an add-in card... or the sound card on your motherboard introduces noise.

Xonar's were a kind of no-nonsense thing, and were the Creative beaters, and now we've got Red Tazo's stuck on to some Michael Bay crap.. Asus.. why?
