    How is an external card "better" then an on board audio chip ? They all sample at 44 or 48 KHZ and use similar Burr-Brown DACs.... It probably sounds better to you because they apply sound shaping filters that your onboard sound doesn't use. Try to use an EQ with your onboard sound card and I bet it will sound a lot better

    My MII12000's onboard sound (running through my Pioneer headunit's IP bus) sounds noticeably better than the same headunit playing CDs.



    I'm not complaining.

    Well, one percieves the quality of audio to be on a higher level when comparing one option against another
