I have found a noticable difference in clarity when I switched from the onboard audio on my BD7 to the Muse 5. I can’t back it up with any stats, but even at 30 bucks, the Muse XL blows compared to the onboard realtek sound It’s just not that great really, and I hope you’re just arguing a “Best of the Worst” kind of argument, otherwise if your friend really wants good gaming he should pick up a TBSC instead. Computer motherboards often provide a connector to bring microphone and headphone signals to the computer’s front panel with standard color jack. Tue Jul 30, I only used it in 2-channel mode, not for gaming.

You’ll see that even with a Mhz processor, the difference amounts to a few percentage points.
I wouldn’t trust marketers as a reliable source of technical fact. It might just be me though, the Muse sounds a lot clearer and cleaner to me. AC’97 is a specification, not an implementation. Tue Jul 30, 3: Mar 1, Posts: This page was last edited on 13 Octoberat I read a thread where poptones said that most modern onboard sound solutions like cmedia, etc, are basically cards just mounted on the motherboard, and there is no performance hit.

Then don’t worry about your friend. Audio software Sound cards Computer-related introductions in I own a muse xl, and my friend is telling me I’m an idiot because I’d rather use the realtek onboard codeec rather than the muse.
Tue Jul 30, 7: Mar 3, Posts: This revision provides means for the audio codec to supply parametric data about its analog interface much like Intel High Definition Alc560. I have found a noticable difference in clarity when I switched from the onboard audio on my BD7 to the Muse 5.
Mon Jul 29, 8: Do this for a test: Lower sample rates such as Nov 5, Posts: Oct 23, Posts: Wikimedia Commons has media related to AC’ The specification covers two xc97 of component, and the “AC-link” digital interface between them:.
Codec chips have an AC97 interface on one side and analog audio interface on the other. IME, I’ve found onboard sound especially Slc650 to be noisy, though Asus had produced a few boards with turkey C-Media chips; humming and rumbling when you move the mouse. Normally, six channels are used for 5.
Alternatively, sample rate conversion could be performed in the DC97 controller or in the software driver. Computer motherboards often provide a connector to bring microphone and headphone signals to the computer’s front panel with standard color jack.
Vodec yes, with properly optimized drivers and a fast processor, even a sound card that uses HSP can outperform the Muse XL.
xlc650 May 14, Posts: I say they both use the same or the realtek uses even less. The first slot 0 is 16 bits long and contains validity flags for the remaining slots, while the remaining bits are divided in twelve bit slots slots 1—12used as data slots.

That said, the onboard audio does make use of HSP host signal processing, as opposed to DSP which makes it a software based audio card but the performance hit is hardly noticeable with today’s processors. I don’t know about the MuseXL, but the Cmedia onboard sound on my A7v sounds great to my ears they have the same chipset. Alc65 is therefore a time-division multiplexing TDM scheme. The link carries a bidirectional serial data stream at a fixed bitrate Retrieved from ” https: You’d be much better off judging the two audio solutions based on their practical merits – sound quality, driver quality, number of inputs and outputs, etc.
