Please Recommend me the best sound card for ~50 bucks

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Im trying to buy a sound card as a birthday present for my grand father who enjoys/uses computer only for music and nothing else. He has a somewhat decent HP computer with onboard audio and always tells me he loves how music sounds in my house.

From what i see the best sound card for the price is:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16829132013

ASUS XONAR DS.

easy to use and cheapest sound card with sample rate of 192KHz.

what do you guys think about this sound card for someone who only uses it for music?
is there any other sound card with a better value than this?

thank you everyone who helps out.

DS would be fine. the sampling rate specs don't really matter tbh.

Xonar DG would be enough for him also which is $29 dollars. Sure he might not use it headphone amp on it. But it be enough for him, Unless you wanna start rolling op-amps and would want the op-amp dip 8 socket thats located on the DS.
