I have a really nice sound system (A 5.1 Logitech Z680 THX certified) and a stock sound card. Music comes out great, but I feel as though my sound card is restricting my sound system. The voice comes in a little soft, and if I fix that the bass is really funny. Sometimes the sound is more concentrated to the Left than it is to the right, sometimes the right doesn't even work at all! I'd blame it on the sound system, but I plugged my system into a friends sound card and it sounded great! I'm debating if I should get a new one. Here's my specs:
Current sound card:
Can't tell... BUT it's 7.1, has a 128KHz sample rate (At least that's what Realtec says) 24-bit audio, Dolby Music/Movie, ect. It's the stock sound card for the P7P55 SUPERCOMPUTER motherboard.
Want to get:
The thing I'm worried about is maybe the new card isn't worth it? The Sample rate goes down on the new card. Plus the new card doesn't have a DTS decoder, does that mean something? However the new card is THX certified and has all those fancy THX decoders, would that be an upgrade or not?
