Asus Xonar DS Driver Download. I recently added the Asus Xonar DS PCI sound card. Wanted was a card with DTS connect support, optional Dolby Digital Live. After reading some tests and experience reports, I decided to choose the Xonar DS, although I really wanted a PCIexpress solution, the Xonar DX has "only" Dolby support. My expectations were mixed, through the low-profile aperture, I also had the possibility to use the card in the server. A solid packaging, the content was the map, a low-profile bracket, a plastic adapter from 3.5 mm jack to Toslink, the quick start guide and a CD with drivers and manual. The map itself is good average, as with the price class but also not to be expected otherwise.
