Hi guys, i need buying advice on internal sound card. Currently i'm using onboard sound from my Gigabyte x570 aorus elite and its pretty bad for music ( never payed to much attention to gaming sound ). I hope to buy half decent sound card for under 100$. I live in Serbia so my options are quite limited, but iv found 3 interesting options that fit the budget.
ASUS Xonar AE - 60e
CREATIVE Sound Blaster Audigy Rx - 67e
CREATIVE Sound Blaster Z - 80e
Speakers and headphones that i'm using are Logitech z506 5.1 , HyperX cloud stinger and old Philips SHC8525/00. Plan on buying 2.1 or 2.0 system in near future.
You try to open the Realtek audio program and adjust your EQ? I am using my onboard audio with a 2.1 system, and more frequently a pair of IEMs that I plug into the motherboard. I adjusted the EQ for speakers, and one for headphones, and it has been fine...
In what way is it bad for music?
If you are adamant about getting an audio solution, the generally accepted advice is to get an external DAC, to run your headphones off of.
