Low Volume Issue - Asus Xonar DGX

Hello all! I recently installed the Asus Xonar DGX sound card in my computer, and I noticed that it doesn't get very loud. I've messed around with the settings a bit, and turning everything up doesn't really fix it. My computer's volume is at 100% as well. I mean it's not terribly quiet, but it definitely isn't loud enough. I've included a screenshot of my settings. I'm not sure what else to do. Any suggestions are appreciated! Thank you.

  1. Hope you have your headphone pluged directly into the soundcard as that is the way you have it configured in your software. If you have it pluged in to the front panel of your computer case that would be the problem.
  2. I have it directly in my sound card. Even when it's in the front panel, it's still about the same volume. The odd thing is, I can clearly hear sounds even when my volume is set like this:

    I was listening to a song when I took that screenshot. I'm pretty baffled.
  3. Enable SVN and see if that makes a difference.
  4. Unfortunately, smart volume doesn't help. I don't know if it will help, but I'll try re-installing the drivers tomorrow.
  5. I found a strange fix to my issue. Right when I was about to give up, I went to Playback Devices, ASUS Xonar DGX Audio Device, then the Advanced tab, and changed the settings to 24 bit 44100 Hz. Also changing the Analog Out to 2 speakers made it louder, even though I'm using headphones. It gets loud enough now.
  6. In case anyone else searches and finds this forum question:

    Bring up the Xonar DGX Audio Center. On the Main tab, select the FP Advance Settings (hammer next to the "Analog Out" option) and select gaming or exiter mode. The default setting is VOIP :P.
