striker890That really looks like it's going to outclass every internal soundcard on the market...

dustinggI've been using the Sound Blaster Z for the past 6 years now. I really love this card and it's been working Flawlessly. I'm connecting via Toslink to a Yamaha receiver using the 5.1 surround sound via the Dolby Digital and DTS software built into creatives software panel. My question is what kind of signal does the EVGA NU output via Toslink to a digital receiver? Dolby or DTS? PCM?
vxpulseWould using a sound card take up less system resources than using a DAC over USB? I assume using USB audio would load the audio processing onto the CPU. Back in the day using a sound meant unloading the process from the CPU which was a perk. Or does it even matter anymore?
RavenmasterWill the new EVGA sound card support any of the following? DTS Connect, DTS-X, DTS-HD Master Audio, Dolby Digital Live, Dolby Atmos?
gregboy83RavenmasterWill the new EVGA sound card support any of the following? DTS Connect, DTS-X, DTS-HD Master Audio, Dolby Digital Live, Dolby Atmos?It doesn't have HDMI out. Quite sure HDMI is the only thing that can carry Dolby Atmos and DTS X. I've been waiting a long time for a sound card with this. I mentioned it to the guys with Creative at E3 a year or two ago, but no one is listening. : /
MSimbcavnaughMSim Can we get your approval here Will have to wait and see. I have Creative AE-5, hopefully some does a good review comparing EVGA NU AUDIO card vs Creative AE-5 card. I would like to see more information about EVGA NU AUDIO software for the card. You need both good hardware and software. I'll take a stab at MSRP on EVGA NU AUDIO. My guess is $199 or higher.
gch233Can i hook up my logitech Z533 speakers with subwoofer? I have a pair of Grado SR 80 e prestige headphones as well. I love my Grado's! Good sound. Can i use a set of rc plugs for the subwoofer and speakers and also have the headphones on the other jack as well? I might save up for this new sound card from EVGA. I currently have a SoundBlaster Audigy FX Sound card but it seems to tax the computer when I have the volume up on the speakers. Would the EVGA have more power for the speakers? Would it be too much power for the Logitech Z533's. Thanks.
SprayingMangoEven with an X series board, which I have, I’ve run out of lanes with my NVLink and NVME drives populated. SLI support is the best it’s been in years also. People that do not use SLI always love to spread misinformation and comment on things they have no experience with. This audio card does not even support MQA so streaming Tidal or other lossless audio will effectively be 13 bit.
transdogmifierThis would require new speakers for me...probably time for them....I have a pair of Cambridge Soundworks from Circa 2003... Any suggestions for a set up? I was thinking https://www.amazon.com/Lo...r-System/dp/B004M18O60
SherylinRMSo I have a pro mic I can't plug into it [I need a three prong plug/receiver].And a surround sound head phone with 3 speakers on each side that uses 3 plugs that I can't use.Um ok so what good is this again? I still would need my M-audio adapter for my mic, that I all ready use, and still need my on board audio for surround sound, which I all ready use. So I see absolutely no need for this at all. They dropped the ball on this one for me anyhow.I can't see this as anything more than a "wow" toy for those who are wanting to pretend to be audiophiles. I do not see any pro being able to use this at all. Oh well. Maybe next time guys. EDIT:Yes I did spend several minutes going over all the specs before typing this as well.
GGTV-JonA few things are indeed missing information wise, other then"DSD" on the current product page what about Doby?? DTS?? PCM?
