AV30's with onboard vs uDAC

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi guys,


Currently I have AV30s connected to my desktop onboard sound card.I think it is realtek ALC888 or something to that effect. I am sure it is a decent one as far as onboard sound goes, it even has digital in/out.

I was wondering if I were to get uDAC and use them with my AV30s, would I get a benefit in terms of sound quality? I really don't know what to expect. Anyone has any idea?

cheers,

It will improve the sound, no question, but don't expect anything dramatic.
The differences are more noticeable with better speakers/headphones.

Thanks. I kinda suspected that. I guess than the idea is to get better speakers first (e.g. A5's). I need to save for that

Once you get them can you please give me a feedback? I have the ALC888 onboard sound card as well with my Equation Audio RP-21s hooked up to them.

 

So far it sounds great, and vs the Creative Audigy SE I used to own, I could not tell the slightest difference. The Audigy SE were cheap anyway so it wasn't much of a loss.

 

I'd still love to know if there would be any differences with the uDAC added in the setup.
