ASUS may be best known for their motherboards, video cards, and laptops; but more and more though they are making a name for themselves with computer accessories. We have covered a handful of their sound cards and other computer audio devices over the years, and we have generally been very impressed. In this review we will take a look at one of their newer audio products - the Xonar U3 USB sound card, which is shown in the promotional image below.

While the device shown in the picture above may be quite small, it is touted as being a very effective replacement for the sound card in many laptops and netbooks. Before we get into just how effective it is, lets look at some of its published features and specifications as taken from the official product page on the ASUS website.
