Conversation: Sound card
Subject: Re: Sound card
Audigy2I am basing this switchover on the fact that I'm assuming the
onboardcard in my 8400 is better than the sound quality I'd get from the
integrated audio on my new E520. Would this assumption be correct?
creative sell enthusiast sound cards
last creative i bought was sound blaster live years ago, i'v used
sound since then
Interesting, I just figured the Audigy2 would be better than the
integrated audio on my new E520. I do a lot of recording via the line-
in jack and need high-quality stereo playback. I've read that
sometimes integrated audio can pick up additional noise via the
motherboard when recording. I found the specs on the integrated video
on Dell's site (it uses an Nvidia chip), but what exactly is used for
the integrated audio?
I'd be interested in hearing others opinions on these issues
concerning which is the best way to go in my situation. If I move the
Audigy2 I'd still want to use integrated sound on the 8400 so I don't
know if I'll need to move the "intergrated" hardware over from the
E520 to the 8400 or what I would need to do. My 8400 came with the
Audigy2 preinstalled and I don't see any additional audio jacks on the
back of the machine.
I suspect the E520 uses the same integrate audio as my XPS 410/Dimension
9200. I used the optical out into my home theater system and the 5.1
quality was stunning. Certainly the equal of any Soundblaster I've
Can't comment on line in. Don't do that.
