A friend of mine getting new headphones for music on his computer, he only has onboard sound at the moment though...
No super high end stuff, just something for HD558-ish range headphones.
I'm no expert myself but I enjoy music, I got the Xonar ST back when I bought my audio gear, but I hear people suggesting DACs and whatnot instead of a soundcard.
Can someone explain the options he has?
I don't really understand how a DAC can be a cheaper/better option than a genuine soundcard, wouldn't the input to the DAC from the onboard sound be crappy?
Also nothing super expensive, around 100€ maybe a little more if it's really worth it.
