if anyones interested the asus essence st is now out ...so far its as good as people say sound is way better than my creative xfi fatal1ty card from reviews ive read...but anyones interested i purchased my card here if anyone is after one . They still have a few left.
The ST has been out for many weeks now, in various locations but just recently has come to North America. I would htink this guy bought a bunch overseas in hopes to make a few buck seeling them to USA and Canada. The ST Deluxe is a great card, I have had one for about 8 months now give or take.
i do live in the u.s..lol and yeah he did say to let friends know he had some if they were interested but seeing as many people have said they want one i thought i would let people know where to find them..i paid $265 not bad with insurance ..i read they would sell at alittle more higher price than the stx anyway ,i did see alot of german sites sellling them but cost seems about the same if not a little more but like i say having read the reviews from head-fi.com i decided to buy one
i guess its just down to how bad you want one...lol
i can't find this card any where if it is out. it must have been released in very very limited quantities. oh well. gonna wait to pick this one up over the stx, even though it may take a while.
I am unsure if it is fully released in the USA as of yet. Many mention seeing and buying it overseas but I think there may still awhile to wait until they are everywhere in the US and Canada.
just bought the product from a uk retailer.
i also just got off the phone with an asus pre-sale rep, and he said that we will not be seeing the product in the us at all.
kinda wondering about this.
I find that hard to believe....
yea me too. but i am tired of waiting, and i got it for a really decent price of $220 shipped.
the thing he mentioned is: "it's on 'the back' of the production line", my guess is that they are hardly producing any, and its been shipped to europe and asia, in small quantities currently.
anyways, can't wait for the card to arrive. i should also have my hd650 by then as well, so i can actually use the card in the way it was intended to be used.
when you get hd650s dont judge them on the first day lol ...
no, i dont plan on it.
stepping up from crappy 20$ headphones though (i've been using Grado SR40's for a bit, borrowing them from a friend), and they are pretty awesome and inexpensive.
I know a few guys with STX/ST and the HD650's. They say the cards can drive them properly but you may want an external amplifier depending on your personal taste or setup. The ST(X) has a very powerful amp for a soundcard with a +/- 12 volt swing...
Is there a UK source that will ship to NA (specifically Canada)?
Not sure. I heard they were heading for NA after they were relased in a few place overseas. I will see if I can find any further information that is solid.
yep stx drives hd 650 fine
it depends if your in a major city or not.
if you live in a small town, and not near a major city, you may have to have them ship it to a po box within a major city.
had the same problem. they wouldn't ship it to houghton (small town), MI, but it was fine shipping to Milwaukee (large city) WI.
How about the Forte, I might consider the HD 650 in the future (after I get Beyerdynamic DT 880 '03's though).
Who? Link please.
forte is fine also but i dont like the amp ^_^
