Hello, Ive recently purchased a surround sound system A sony HT-K25 second hand.
It delivers 5.1 sound quality, I want to connect it to my PC. Im wondering whether should I bother purchasing a sound card to "improve" the sound quality. I ask this because I realise on-board sound technology has gotten better over the years im just not knowledgeable of it.
Dont bother with sound card if you got 7.1 On Board audio... Sound card makes your music sound better or just sound and you dont really need if you dont do any music edit or sound edit stuff... Sound card is what depend your doing and most of the time it's not needed...
I have a dedicated sound card and swear by it, but I'm not convinced a sub $100 card can outperform a modern motherboard codec (and yes I know there is still great variety in motherboard audio codecs and performance varies).
