I have onboard sound and my motherboard is quite old as it is from a fairly old Dell PC. I am getting Teufel E 400 Digital. I have been looking at this: http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B0042RUEQW?tag=tesicai-21

I prefer using an external sound card as it is easier and I am a noob so i can't install it.

Will I hear a difference? I have not got the speakers yet.


Thanks all for help.

Why don't you get the Edifier speakers you were looking at? It already has a DAC built in, no sound card needed, as long as your computer has optical out or coxial digital outputs. Or, if you don't have digital or optical out, then get a 2 channel DAC to go with the Edifiers. I've seen people over at head-fi.org (search there) say that the Hifimediy Sabre is a pretty good DAC, and it's not very expensive: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Hifimediy-Sabre-USB-DAC-ES9023-Tenor-TE7022-96khz-24bit-96-24-/140911022146

Thanks but I think I can't add DAC to the Edifiers for some reason...

I just read it somewhere.

Also I still have not decided on which speakers to get and I can't hear them in any shops because they are not mainstream frown.gif

Sure you can. An external sound card is a DAC that may have other features. With that DAC, you would need a 3.5mm to RCA adapter, and the plug it up to the back of the Edifier, which has RCA inputs. Look at the manual.

Who knows? I don't, and apparently no one else who has read this post does, or they would have said something.
