I am a rank novice, so please forgive any misused vocabulary or misunderstood concepts, thanks!
I have a pair of Behringer TRUTH B2030A Active-Powered monitors and a Lexicon Alpha mixer connected via USB directly to a USB port on my PC. I used this almost exclusively for listening pleasure, not for mixing. Here is my question.
Does it make any sense to add a PCI based internal sound card like the ASUS Xonar Essence STX TLS and then run cables from the output of the sound card to the 1/4" input on the Lexicon mixer? Will that improve my sound or does the Lexicon Alpha already contain a sound card internally.
ANY help or explanations would be greatly appreciated.
The $55 price for the Lexicon appears to be a close-out price. My sources show a mark down from $199 MSRP which might work out to $149.95 street price.
One thing you must understand is that in the audio world, price and performance aren't necessarily aligned. Also, the sound card has a surround processor on board.
