    I suggest upgrading speakers before buying a sound card. Those speakers are not going to benefit from any additional dac/amp changes

    It will help drive my Audio Technica ATH-50x and prepare me for when I get new headphones.

    Do you have a suggestion for computer speakers that would benefit from a new card?

    The ZxR would be Great for your headphones, high or low impedance. Especially with the desktop extension that comes with it, you can plug in your headphones easily.
    Headphones are this cards main selling point!


    Speakers on the other hand....

    Analog speakers would see a nice clean signal, since the card would be considered "pre-amp" (outside of the headphone amplifier), you need to run your analog signal to an amp, then play from there. So any decent speaker setup that has a nice amp would be good.

    Digital speakers (SPDIF), would see no real benefit of a better card outside of the all the options the sound card gives you as far as enhancements go.

    Signal to Noise is great on it, it offers ASIO if you use that, and has a lot of other "options".

    Continuation......

    I personally love "Audioengine" products for my home computers.

    Something like the A2's would be a good addition:

    accompanied by the S8 sub:

    That's what I use at home, and I love it.


    If you don't need a bunch of bass, you could probably get away with just a set of A5's:

    I have a Dell XPS 13 that is in perfect working order but the screen took a small hit and is now acting weird (slight discoloration and "flickering" (sorta). If anyone happens to have a working screen assembly, I'd love to buy it. If you have a broken laptop but the screen works, the removal process is really easy. Thanks!

    I have a 2018 Blade 15 if you're interested. No touch, 1080p 144Hz IPS panel with GTX 1060MQ, 8750HQ, 512GB NVME & 16GB RAM.


    Wasn't sure if it qualifies as ultrabook though.

    Thanks, but I am looking specifically for a touch panel. Really appreciate the reply, though!
