    Hi, I wanna buy a sounds card for my next PC and I've foudn the Xonar DX, but it has two variants, the ASUS Xonar DX/XD/A and the ASUS Xonar DX/XD/A LP. What are the differences? Btw, my knowledge about sounds cards is pretty much zero, but I've read a positive review about this one.

    Just a guess, but "LP" probably stands for "Low Profile" as in a low profile bracket you screw onto the soundcard to fit into smaller PC's. I know my Xonar DG came with one of these brackets. I could be wrong though..

    LP = Low Profile ... it's for miniature cases.

    Thanks, so Xonar DX/XD/A is for ATX if I get it right.

    The difference between "normal" and "low profile" backet is easy to see from Auzentech figure. LP is usually used on "slim desktop" or "2U rack" chassis.

    It is more likely that an "LP" Xonar includes both brackets and you can change as needed.

    There is really just the DX and other listings seem like just incorrect listings...nothing more.
    There is no differences as there is just the xonar DX...thats it's.
    The Xonar DX is a low profile card but comes with two different brackets.
