  • Sound quality from soundcard to amp?

    if i rig up the sound card out to an amp to the speakers, how is the sound quality on it? if its stereo out? or would it be better if i get RCA out? because they don't put out as many volts as a decent headunit does, so i was wondering how the sound quality would be. and which would be better

    I use stero mini to rca's. I'm using the audigy 2 nx and have heard that the voltage is actually higher than a head unit. Anyways it sounds good like that. Dont worry about getting a sound card with rca out.

      thats good to hear, however, due to the lack of space, i was wondering if there is a good PCI soundcard that would give good sound quality and a decently high voltage.

        the audigy 2 nx pci, and the audigy 2 nx usb both have 2vrms outputs... thats yer average deck, sounds fine i suppose for me, specially since my card-to-amp cables are 3ft long and shortening

        if i saw a sound card with more volts (like some of those eclipse headunits), i'd buy it up in a second

          are there any other sound cards with 2v outputs? and what is the average voltage output for low value sound cards, or integrated suond cards?

            What do you think guys about that?
            Is it better than the audigy 2?I want to buy that but i don't pretty understand all these parameters
