It also depends on what onboard sound chip it is your motherboard has. Most high end mobo's nowadays have customised onboard from Auzentech, Creative Soundblaster or some other fancy shit. Heaps better then a $20 Xonar etc from years back. Even modern Realtek HD have improved light years compared to the same shit from yesteryear.

I'll believe it when I hear it which will probably never. Never heard anything but empty lifeless ratshit from onboard.

My requirements are quite simple. Clean, lively sounding 2 channel audio with no extra effects. I could get that in something external but I don't want extra shit on my desk for my cats to be assholes too. The Claro+ did that really well from the CMI8788 and I'm annoyed the card died because it was excellent at 2 channel output for what I needed.

lol wasn't directed at you, was just saying in general for anybody else reading it.

You should ban your cats from your room. Last time I owned a cat, he went through my headphone cables. Didn't end pretty, I put him in the timeout corner for a day.

PC's in general space sadly and they like getting up on my desk when I'm using the PC. The big boof tomcat doesn't know his size and just flops and pushes shit off with his mass. He's so big and dumb you can't do anything to him as he just ignores you
