Thank you. Sa motherboards ba, what brand or model usually ang pinakamaganda ang sound quality?
as long as the spec on the motherboard indicates that it's Realtek 898 then it's decent.
may mga mas murang motherboard na realtek 898 ang nakainstall tulad ng sa AsRock Extreme Series...
may times na hindi Realtek nakalagay sa motherboard tulad ng nasa Asus Rampage IV black ed.
Cirrus Logic CS4398 na ang nakalagay, mas ok yan compared sa Realtek 898.
since hindi mo pwede ma-audition yung sound sa motherboard, i-base mo nalang sa snr rating. aim for snr with 100db and above.
simply check the snr rating of the audio codec or dac on their respective maker's site...
a dedicated soundcard/dac will always be ahead when compared to onboard sound even if their snr is the same though.
