Sound card for Teufel E 400

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
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.

Ok thanks for your help, one last question, for £50 is that external sound card I linked worth it? smile.gif

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