Asus Xonar Essence ST with H6 Card Works: Foobar/Jack Setup

Postby tarik2cyprian » Thu Jul 04, 2013 1:57 am

I am just posting this thread because there were some issues about the Xonar Essence ST not working with sample rates from 88200Hz to 192000Hz (Which is true),
and only works from 32000Hz to 48000Hz using OSSv4. This is because I believe the drivers were only designed to work with Asus Xonar STX.

But I discovered if you connect the Xonar H6 Daughter Expansion Card which give you a total of 7.1 audio channels to the Xonar Essence ST you can play all higher sample rates 88200Hz to 192000Hz. So basically
there is a driver within the OSSv4 for the Xonar Essence ST but just know if you don't have the H6 Daughter Expansion Card you will only be able to play sample rates 32000Hz to 48000Hz which limits its full
functionality.

Currently I have the Xonar Essence ST with H6 Daughter Expansion Card setup on Ubuntu Studios 13.04 and have foobar2000 working through wineHQ to output audio through Jack Audio Connection Kit using
jackd2 and the sound quaility is out of this world.

If you have any questions on my foobar2000/jack setup just respond to this thread.
