I have a HP Pavilion dv5200tx laptop. I'm getting a pair of M-Audio AV40 speakers, and I am told that good speakers are limited by weak onboard sound card. I see the Echo Indigo Card has been very well-reviewed. Is this sound quality really good than options from Creative like the Sound Blaster X-Fi Surround 5.1 USB?
Best Sound Card for my Laptop
The Echo Indigo Card is better with dual jacks for sound output, an analog volume control and what gives it the edge over others is the headphone amplifier. It comes with the WinDVD software. It has true 24 bit 96 kHz audio. Its adapter cable is 6 foot. It has high quality digital to analog converters.
The Sound Blaster X-Fi Surround 5.1 USB is easy to upgrade, remixes stereo audio to output surround audio. It has both Line IN and Line OUT with MIC input jack. Its sound output mode is 5.1 Channel. It gives realistic 3D effect on games.
