Upgrading audio sound card worth the money? Will there be a noticeable difference?
I have my original stock sound driver from my Sony vaio and im wondering if upgrading my audio card will make a difference. i saw this one sound card im newegg that is $30 and another coaxial audio cable for $2. My home theatre system, in which i will use to connect to my pc, only accepts coaxial spdif input.
The current sound card I have right now does not have coaxial spdif output. I'm still satisfied connecting it to my pc using a RCA to the pc audio jack adapter.
The audio card I'm looking at is at 96 kHz ? How will that compare with my soundmax card? Is there a way to see information about the technical aspects of my sound card so I can make a noticable upgrade?
Is there any benefit from the analog output to the digital coaxial output?
