Well, I've found that the onboard audio is much better suited for my needs. It can mix microphone, line-in (tuner) as well as wave (pc).
Audio quality should be good enough. It's applies to Microsoft WHQL/WLP 2.0 audio requirements and has 100dB S/N.
Its a RealTek device.
My mobo is the Commell LV-679
My questions are:
- how does the sub support work? I have not found a way to set turn-over frequencies. Maybe because I have not connected a sub yet...
- Can plug-in equalizer be used?
- Can the mixer/eq be controlled from sw?
