I'm a major fan of Digital Mode, well right now the original Digital
Mode "CW" But I have seriously thought about doing the more elaborate
digital modes like RTTY, PSK, JT etc. And now with N1MM running some
recorded Voice messages on SSB.
Recently I finally after 12+ years got a new Computer, A DELL Inspirion 3847
Intel i5-4460 3.2Ghz
Typical sound system motherboard setup.
Except it's CRAP!!!!
My old DELL 12+ years old I have hooked up to a awesome amplified
speaker system, And it sounds incredible. If there is any distortion at
all, I can't hear it. At any volume level. And with this speaker system
I sometime crank it up a LOT and rattle the walls.
I listen to all sorts of streaming audios too like from Radio Stations,
and or like pandora etc. and sounds pretty good.
BUT........ and there always is a BUT isn't there?
This new computer sound it is terrible, distortion? I'd say 50%
Honestly I have vintage 60's 2 transistor radios that sound better than
this computer does. At any volume level it is terrible.
I had DELL work on it and everything it is just CRAP I don't dare use it
to generate digital signals. Or recorded voice messages.
So thats what my question is here guys.
Looking for recommendations for a good sound card for bot amateur radio
as well as music too.
