ASUS A7N8X & onboard sound

Postby zak2k2 on Sat Dec 28, 2002 9:36 pm

How does the onboard sound(NVIDIA® SoundStorm) compare to the SB Audigy and or the SB Audigy 2?

Thanks

The Nforce2 onboard sound has pretty decent quality from what I've read. I don't think you'll notice a huge sound difference in your everyday stuff if you use the digital outs.

The main difference is the support for input/output device. The Audigy's will have a lot more in terms of different input and output ports than the onboard Nforce2 sound. In addition, the Audigy 2 has added some new features like DVD-Audio support. If there's a specific feature on the Audigy's specsheet you need, go with that. If you just want good quality sound for everyday stuff, the Nforce2 (thus the ASUS A7N8X) will do well.
