  • PCI Audigy?

    Anyone have this? Kind of a dumb question, but so far all I have seen on here is the external USB version.

    I still have my VIA PCI slot open so I was just curious since I'm getting XM and will do the Optical conversion on it?

    Woot in advance


    PS - I've never met a tough Francis so this hurricane must be a sissy!

    Francis was the psycho guy from Stripes.
    Come to think of it, he was kind of a sissy, too...

    The major advantage to the USB Audigy is the RCA-outs & more watts, thus better overall sound quality.
    The Audigy PCI cards are better quality than onboard sound (overall, not just in a CarPC).
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?



    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.

      Why/how does it have more watts than the PCI?

        Any 3.5mm plug can accept RCA inputs with the right cable or adapter (a few dollars at Ratshack) with no loss in audio quality. More watts? Where did you get this information? Both versions only have low-level outputs.

        The only advantage you have in using a USB audio card in a carputer is saving a PCI slot and possibly reducing electronic noise from inside the case.

          Yeah... what ^he^ said!

          I'll be running the PCI Audigy in my carputer... IF I ever get it done... or even started! lol

          TTYL!

            Coach - Can you do me a favor and measure how tall the card is? I built a custom case and the room I have its SMALL, so I want to measure before I decide to buy

            Maybe 2 measurements, total height, and height - connectors?

              Anyone know what voltage (Vac) these Audigy cards put out on the 1/8" jacks?

              I'm trying to mathmetically determine what my Amplifier gains should be set to, not just guesstimate it..

              Anyone?

              I suppose I should just go whip out the Voltmeter and find out myself, huh.. *sigh*

                DUH!


                Shouldn't you just set the gain to your listening pleasure?
