Strix Soar is a gaming sound card built with high-performance components to satisfy gamers who demand pure, full-sounding audio. Strix Soar features rich, immersive, and clear sound with an incredible 116dB signal-to-noise ratio (SNR), and a 600ohm headphone amplifier for deep, tight bass. The simple yet powerful Sonic Studio sound utility provides complete sound card control and allows easy in-game audio adjustments. Strix Soar features the latest Sonic Studio software suite for full control over every sound technology, from equalization (EQ) to 7.1-speaker level-balancing. Sonic Studio has a single navigation page that puts everything in front of you, with an intuitive point-and-click interface that allows you to pre-set audio profiles to suit different audio requirements. Modern games are more than graphics - precise audio positioning gives gamers a distinct edge over enemies. That's why Strix Soar includes Sonic Radar Pro, an ASUS exclusive technology that visualizes and enhances in-game sounds, giving you a vital edge in first-person shooters. Fire up your favourite game and Sonic Radar Pro displays a 'radar' HUD (heads-up display) that pinpoints in-game actions relative to your position, so you'll know exactly where you are on the battlefield and what's happening around you! Multiple radar-enhancers can be enabled in order to visualize and boost specific sounds such as footsteps, gunshots, and call-outs. Sounds are plotted on the 360-degree HUD, even when there's no clear line of sight, so invisibility is no barrier to pinpointing opponents, giving you a distinct advantage over other players! What's more, Sonic Radar's on-screen appearance and position is completely customizable, so you can make it work just the way you want, with whatever game you want! High-fidelity grade ESS SABRE9006A DAC delivers unrivalled, jitter-free sound and an exceptional 116dB signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) for 32 time’s greater clarity than average onboard audio.

Q: Can this be installed in an MSI B350 KRAIT? The PCI Express standard isn't stated in the description for the product or specification. I'd imagine it would be backwards compatible?

Q: Does this card have an HDA header?
Answer by Website User on 26th October 2015
Asus' spec doesn't mention it and I've not yet seen one in person to know for sure but I don't think that it does. -Danlevan
