My motherboard is the Gigabyte x570 Aorus Elite and I want an internal sound card.
I run Phillips Fidelio X2HR & Beyerdynamic Beyron, both are considerably weaker sounding moving from my M-ITX MSI B550i MPG Gaming Edge MAX.
Clearly the MSI had a better onboard solution.

Mostly my issue is lack of dynamics and not as loud.

My budget is £100 ($132 roughly) Thanks.

Thank you!



Yes my drivers are installed perfectly for the onboard audio, the supposed "Better audio" on this board does not in practice sound good at least for me and my equipment.



I completely forgot about FiiO I still have one of their little MP3 players.. amazing quality.

I have bought that instead based upon what PCI sound cards are available with not a single trustworthy one in sight, either bad drivers or no driver support (Windows 11) or other issues.

Plus the fact I have a WiFi card inbound too (Nord VPN on my ethernet connection causes internet drop outs) which would be nestled right against the sound card causing interference.







Thank you to all!
