So I’ve had a PCIe soundcard in my computer for the longest of years (Sound Blaster Recon3D PCIe) which doesn’t get the best reviews but for me it sounds a lot better than most integrated audio.
Now I’ve been thinking about getting my first DAC like the Schiit MAGNI 3 Heresy. In Pauls video about External DACs vs. soundcards (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K7vQFnn33H8) he mentions not to use soundcards. But wouldn’t a PCIe soundcard be better than using integrated?
I thought using a PCIe soundcard in conjunction with a DAC would produce a better result than to use the integrated audio processor?
Please let me know on your thoughts!
