The Xonar D2 also includes the innovative Acoustics Echo Cancellation (AEC) technology to facilitate the best online voice communication quality. AEC can eliminate up-to-40dB speaker echo return and suppress noises that would otherwise enter the users' microphone – making the Xonar D2 the best audio card choice for online chatting in VOIP applications (Skype, MSN, Google, QQ, etc.) or online gaming. The ASUS Xonar D2 also features a signal- to-noise ratio (SNR) of 118 dB for both audio in and out - reaching the maximum limit of audio quality on most PC platforms. Unlike generic audio cards in the market that provide the highest SNR to only the front stereo outputs, the Xonar D2 is able to deliver 118 dB quality audio for all 7.1 channels.
