New onboard, disappointed
I recently built a new PC with AMD Ryzen 2700X on a MSI X470 Gaming Pro Carbon board. It was advertised as Alc1220 with amp and all the bells and whistles. .
Turns out it is firstly only half as loud as my old gigabyte mobo and the treble above 10khz is smoothed off entirely. I turned off all the sound effects but it doesn't help.
My DT770 is supposed to be a little bright on top. With this MSI board you don't notice it.
On most other sources I have to EQ it down not up.
Also even giving 16khz +12db makes almost zero difference.
on my old mobo that would be ear piercing bright.
so I guess I need a solution with neutral response!
Do you guys think the Creative AE5 card would be a good choice?
Or what other dac amp would be recommended up to 200€
