The common wisdom about motherboard audio these days is that it's good 'nuff unless you're a a real audiophile. Well, I'm not an audiophile, but I was checking the sound on computers the other day, and the old one sounds better than my newer computer. Lots better. Like I'd pay for that better.
- Old mobo: aBit NF-M2 nView
- New mobo: ASRock Z77 Pro3
- Reference speakers: $20 2.1 set from Creative (did I mention that I'm not an audiophile?)
Now I'm confused. According to the internet, I shouldn't notice any difference between the on-board audio on those two boards, yet I notice. Is the internet wrong, or am I missing something?
