i have a xonar dx. however, it doesn't seem to be all that stable (occasionally crashes games, freezes in mp3 playback), and it also produces these rumbling sounds, though not as strongly. because of the stability issues, i was forced to take it out. maybe i should put it back in and see if i can find some better drivers for it.

Do you think the fact that it uses a USB port to power it has anything to do with it?
