Mar 3, Posts: 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. I own a muse xl, and my friend is telling me I’m an idiot because I’d rather use the realtek onboard sound rather than the muse. Tue Jul 30, 3: Views Read Edit View history.

Tue Jul 30, 7: Mon Jul 29, Slots 1, 2 and 12 are used for non-audio data, while slots 3—11 carry up to nine channels of raw pulse-code modulation PCM audio signals.

Codec chips have an AC97 interface on one side and analog audio interface on the other. 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.

AC’97 – Wikipedia

The link carries a bidirectional serial data stream at a fixed bitrate Computer motherboards often provide a connector to bring microphone and headphone signals to the computer’s front panel with standard color jack.


Lower sample rates such as Mar 1, Posts: This page was last edited on 13 Octoberat MostlyHarmless Ars Praefectus Registered: Alternatively, sample rate conversion could be performed in the DC97 controller or in the software driver. AC’97 is a specification, not an implementation. Ars Legatus Legionis et Subscriptor. This is therefore a time-division multiplexing TDM scheme. Let him bask in his ignorance.

The specification covers two types of component, and the “AC-link” digital interface between them: Mar 3, Posts: I wouldn’t trust marketers as a reliable source of technical fact. Views Read Edit View history.

Wikimedia Commons has media related to AC’ 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.

settle a bet: is the realtek alc650 onboard sound better than a muse xl?

Coddec Jul 29, 8: It might just be me though, the Muse sounds a lot clearer and cleaner to me. I was very impressed by the quality. Dude, if you’re worried about CPU usage, go and look at the article I linked to. The standard was used in motherboardsmodemsand sound cards.

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.
