...using analog outputs or the optical? My analog dropouts were very short, more like frequent stutters, not seconds long but more like 200 miliseconds. The only thing I can think of to try to reduce it would be to:
1. Install/uninstall (whichever has not been done) the ASMedia USB driver, though I tried this and it did not help for me.
2. Locate Device Manager > Universal Serial bus Controllers > USB Root Hub (Properties - the one with location = "on asmedia something something" ) and under Power Management tab, uncheck "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power". Also did not help for me.
3. Move the card to a different PCIe port if possible. Also did not help for me.
4. System > Advanced System Settings > Performance 'Settings Button' > Advanced Tab > Processor Scheduling > Adjust For Best Performance of: Background Services. Also did not help for me.
5. Wait for Asus to fix their broken drivers...but yeah, I doubt that will ever happen. I have been waiting over a year.
Best thing to do if possible would be return it and get your money back honestly.
My MSI B450 motherboard was bad with the analog stutters, but my ASRock B450 Gaming K4 has much, much reduced stutter, almost non-existant, so some very similar hardware is more finicky about it than others. Maybe a BIOS/UEFI update would help on your board?

I've already opened a ticket with Asus. See what they say.

I totally agree, and none of that crap worked for me either. The whole USB audio chip on a PCIe card is just a bad design.
Scroll up to see the results of my ticket. Short version was: Asus: "If you want it to work, use something else".
