For notebook or PC users that want to improve their quality of sound emanating from their machine Asus is pleased to bring to you the Xonar U1. This USB audio device looks like it should belong on the head of a member of Devo but in fact it clears up the electromagnetic interference and removes any residue static created by your computer’s circuitry using a digital to analog converter (DAC). The Xonar also employs EAX and DirectSound HW acceleration to make it compatible with Windows Vista and XP gaming. It’s also bundled with Asus’ Array Microphone which promises to suppress ambient noises up to 20 dB leaving only your voice as the sole soundwave being heard by your deathmatch opponent or Skype pal. You can also get Dolby Digital 5.1 channel audio output once you connect it up to your stereo/home theater thanks to the unit’s SPDIF output feature. Price and availability was not given by Asus in their initial announcement nor were the members of Devo asked to comment on the design of the Xonar U1.
