Asustek Computer on Thursday announced the ROG (Republic of Gamers) Xonar Phoebus Solo 7.1 PCI Express gaming sound card with precise positional audio and lifelike immersion for gamers.

Xonar Phoebus Solo continues to exhibit the previous Xonar Phoebus’ hardware excellence, including clear 118dB signal-to-noise ratio, a powerful 600 ohm headphone amplifier, Dolby Home Theater V4, and DTS UltraPC II surround sound. The audio card is believed to be powered by C-Media CMI 8888, just like the original Xonar Phoebus.

The ROG Xonar Phoebus Solo sound card features an EMI shield and exclusive Asus Hyper Grounding technology that significantly reduce the detrimental effects of the electromagnetic interference present inside all desktop PCs. Hyper Grounding technology brings the considerable motherboard expertise of ASUS to audio products, with a multi-layer PCB and high-quality power supply that help eliminate electrical noise from nearby components, resulting in cleaner, less distorted audio. Together with the high-fidelity PCM1796 digital-to-analog converter, the ROG Xonar Phoebus Solo delivers clear and crisp sound with a 118dB signal-to-noise ratio (SNR), which means gamers will hear and experience every audio detail.

Many gamers play wearing headphones to avoid disturbing others and ROG Xonar Phoebus Solo is one of the few soundcards to use the Texas Instruments TPA6120A2 with 600ohm impedance for superior sound clarity. Xonar Phoebus Solo also features Dolby Home Theater V4 audio enhancement for cinematic surround sound both with external speakers and headphones. Support for the new DTS UltraPC II audio technology also ensures superior audio quality for every PC application, including gaming, movie-watching and even internet telephone calls.

Asus Xonar Phoebus ROG gaming soundcard costs around $200. Pricing of the Phoebus Solo is unknown.

Asus needs to hire someone to come up with better product names to titillate the 13 year old hormone crazed kids who will buy this crap.
