line issues? under $50, get this!

bryan n., Newegg

  • Summary: somehow, after 4-6 years of doing ok with either a Chaintech AV-710 (with sought-after Burr-Brown DACs in the front), followed by brief Onboard, then a Razer AC-1 (legendary CMI8788), i got some hum somewhere in the DAC chain that i just couldn't get rid of.
  • Pros: -perfect audio for its price bracket -louder (closer to line level) than most soundcards up to $40-50 -got rid of line noise
  • Cons: -no pretentious DAC chipset or OpAmps -only 48kHz (but how many DVD-Audio discs do you have compared to CDs/FLACs/MP3s?)

Good card at low cost.

  • Summary: Before I purchased this card I did some research as I always do before I buy. I had read somewhere that someone had driver problems with this card. I decided to buy anyhow because I needed a card right now being that my on board sound had died. I installed according to instructions.
  • Pros: 7.1/ 24 bit and easy to install.
  • Cons: not found any as of yet
